HOUSTON -- G&A Partners, a national professional employer organization (PEO) and human resources services provider, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The company is one of the largest and fastest-growing privately owned PEOs in the U.S., boasting a 93% client-retention rate and a Net Promoter Score that is 30-times higher than PEO industry standards.
Founded in 1995 by Chairman and CEO Antonio “Tony” Grijalva and President and COO John W. Allen, G&A Partners is a world-class HR services company that helps its clients build and maintain thriving businesses as they pursue their dreams and passions.
“We put people first at G&A and treat them like family,” Allen said. “Our employees are a cut above and they love what they do. Their energy and their joy are contagious, and that is what provides a phenomenal experience for our clients.”
The company has big plans to further expand over the next quarter-century, with the short-term goal to double in size over the next few years through organic growth and acquisitions.
“Everybody needs to employ good people,” Grijalva said. “Everybody needs to create an inviting culture that attracts and retains top talent. We offer our clients the tools and services to accomplish that goal, which also helps them grow and succeed.”
Grijalva and Allen discovered the need for outsourced HR not long after they formed their own CPA firm in the early 1990s. Their clients with small- and medium-sized businesses came to them asking whether they would consider expanding their services to payroll, employee benefits, and other HR functions.
Enough of a demand was present that Grijalva and Allen decided to purchase a temporary staffing agency and create G&A Partners (originally called G&A StaffSourcing) in 1995.
The business venture paid off and today G&A has evolved into a full-service PEO with nearly 400 employees that serve more than 2,000 companies comprising around 56,000 employees. G&A Partners has been consistently recognized as one of the best places to work in several of the markets where it operates.
