PEO for Small Business: A Strategic HR Move

Published   May 14, 2020

In the thick of the pandemic it is not just human lives at steak, but businesses as well.  Many companies are overwhelmed with an abundance of state and federal mandates, as well as employee concerns that are changing the way we do business.  2020 started with owners and executives conducting business as usual.  Managers were putting a pre-coronavirus business plan to action, accounting departments paid bills and issues paychecks while administrators and HR representatives focused on hiring and retention. In the post-coronavirus era, should we remain static, hoping for a return to normalcy, or proactively adapt to the evolving business landscape?

Today we have new legislation and state mandates being written every day that affects our businesses.  CARES Act, Social Security Tax Deferral, furloughing vs. termination were not topics on the agenda a few months ago.  As federal and state governments issue new emergency orders, and the government continues to provide economic relief packages, do you know how they may affect your business?  Do you have professional support to help navigate payroll, benefits, workers comp and HR issues as they relate to your business?  What is your go forward business plan?

Often referred to as HR outsourcing entities, Professional employer organizations (PEOs), have become essential allies when it comes to getting assistance with the administrative tasks that come with owning and operating a business.  From help with payroll and human resources (HR), to employee benefits, risk management as well as helping with state and federal changes, such as the CARES act.  PEO provide the back-office support to help your business navigate these unprecedented times.

That said, I’m delighted to introduce Keith Tirico, owner of Total Business Group, to the SEO Happy Hour podcast. Keith is a great friend, fellow entrepreneur, and expert in the PEO field.  Over recent years, he collaborated with diverse HR outsourcing entities, insurance brokerages, and service providers to help business owners streamline operations, reduce operational costs, and decrease employment liability.  Keith truly loves helping business and is here today to help you all better understand PEO and the benefits that come with outsourcing.

Join our conversation as Keith and I delve into topics surrounding PEOs and their role during the pandemic.
