Outsourcing to a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) gives you instant access to expertise on the entire employee life cycle. Not all human resource service providers are created equal.
As the name implies, Professional Employer Organizations are, first and foremost, professional. They bring to the table the talent and systems to provide administrative support services better, faster, and more economically than most small to mid-size businesses can on their own.
- Those who compete on price alone. Price is what you pay; value is what you get.
- Document dumpers. You get to access their HR library, but there is no one to actually guide you through the process.
- Payroll processing providers. What experience do they have in implementing HR best practices? Same question applies for any specialty HR provider: where’s their depth?
- Providers with low (or unknown) average staff tenure. You want recruiters who have spent years working the street, not someone who just came off it. Oh us? Meet your Cardinal Team.
If you cannot find what you’re looking for, just ask.
