Professional employer organizations (PEOs) provide services to their clients (Their clients are employers.) by managing the employer's various human resources areas, such as employee benefits, payroll, and workers' compensation claims.
When client employers and PEOs contract together, the PEO assumes the responsibility to:
- Provide integrated services to manage HR duties and client employer’s risks.
- Establish and maintain an employer relationship with the employees at the client employer's work site.
- Accept certain contractual client employer rights, responsibilities and risk.
Having a PEO manage human resource services allows client employers to focus on their own core business activities and grow their company's bottom line.
