G&A Partners makes debut on HBJ ‘Middle-Market 50’ Award List
According to the Houston Business Journal (HBJ), Houston is one of the best places for middle-market companies to thrive. These companies, which comprise less than 1% of all businesses, also employ more than 25% of workers in the United States. HBJ calls midmarket companies the "backbone of local economies" and G&A Partners is proud to be distinguished as the No. 19 fastest-growing midmarket company in Houston by the news agency.
G&A acquired Leading Edge, a Wisconsin-based professional employer organization (PEO), and Ignite, a Colorado-based PEO in March of 2020. The large, independent Houston-based PEO ended the year with the acquisition of XMI, a Nashville-based PEO.
“While we were fortunate enough to be able to make three acquisitions throughout 2020, it is our amazing customers and talented, knowledgeable employees that are the driving force behind our continued success and growth,” said John W. Allen, President and CEO of G&A Partners.
When the pandemic hit, G&A’s clients needed its services more than ever. New federal legislation was being rapidly developed and passed and that had an immediate and major impact on G&A’s clients and their employees. G&A created several helpful resources, packaged them in a COVID-19 Toolkit that was available to the public, and communicated with its clients frequently to ensure they were always aware of the latest news and resources that could help them through the difficult time.
In its efforts to become a more experiential organization for its clients and employees, G&A Partners has also restructured its virtual community, The Bridge, in a way that enables its employees and clients to stay up to date on HR trends while they also learn more about the back-office support and administrative services G&A offers.
“Any organization has the opportunity to be good,” Allen said. “At G&A Partners, we continually strive to be world-class.”
G&A Partners, one of the nation’s leading professional employer organizations (PEO), has been helping entrepreneurs grow their businesses for more than 25 years. By delivering world-class services with trusted experts in HR administration, payroll, and benefits, clients now have the time and freedom they need to focus on what matters most—their employees, products and services, and their customers.
Headquartered in Houston, G&A Partners has offices throughout Texas, as well as in Arizona, California, Colorado, Illinois, Minnesota, Nevada, Tennessee, Utah, Wisconsin, and Latin America.
