Business owners oftentimes spend time doing the core functions of human resources, payroll, benefits, and workers’ compensation. And in many cases, they have designated representatives to handle the tasks. But what happens if those non-productive tasks are outsourced and the owner and/or employees are able to allocate their time to revenue-generating activities instead? Likely the organization will reach greater success.

A professional employer organization (PEO) is a co-employment arrangement where the PEO acts as the employer of record. This provides employers access to more competitive benefit offerings, relief from administrative tasks that reduce time that could be spent driving revenue and building a stronger operation overall.

Employers still remain in control of the people side of things – setting schedules, making hiring decisions, and overseeing operations, with minimal administrative tasks (i.e. submitting employees’ time worked, choosing benefit plans, and performance management).

Depending on which services you need, PEOs can handle one or all your main services – HR, payroll, benefits, and/or risk management. From customizing employee handbooks, processing payroll, and crafting job descriptions, to assisting with benefits open enrollment, payroll deductions, and developing a workplace safety program, LL Roberts Group is equipped with the expertise, resources, and tools to streamline your business.

PEOs can offer more options, especially for smaller businesses. Regardless of the size or industry, businesses that use PEOs typically see a noticeable return on investment.
