Frequently Asked Questions
PEO is an acronym for Professional Employer Organization. Simply put, it’s a company that provides “co-employment services” so you can focus on your main business. Payroll, health insurance, workers compensation, HR guidance & compliance are all handled for you by an expert team of dedicated professionals.
The National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO) defines co-employment as the contractual allocation and sharing of employer responsibilities between a PEO and its client. Co-employers do not supply a workforce. They supply services and benefits to a client employer and its existing workforce. You maintain control of ALL business decisions and operations while the co-employer (PEO) manages employee-related aspects.
You save time, money and manpower on back-office administration tasks because a PEO does it all for you. You could cut your time expenditures as much as 25%. PEOs also give you access to SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) guidance that can reduce your overall liability as an employer and enhance employee relations.
Healthcare costs keep rising, as do other employee perks. Searching for the best packages year in and year out can severally hinder your company if not destroy it. This is a chance to stop the madness. Because PEOs pool together a much larger base of members, they typically have significantly greater purchasing power with insurance carriers. So you can offer your employees superior benefits at a more affordable cost each and every year. This is not only a huge advantage for you, but it can be a boon for recruitment and help you retain employees as well.
Sure, but it will probably take a lot of time, effort and resources to find the best PEO. Searching, analyzing, negotiating and documenting is like having another full-time job that could take months. ExpertPEO is the one and only source you need to find the right PEO for your company.

And remember, ExpertPEO does not charge a fee for any of its services. Absolutely nothing. Ever!
In order to obtain formal PEO quotes and recommendations from us, you will need to complete an online RFP (application). We request such things as your company census, payroll register, workers compensation declaration page, plan design page of your health benefits, and a current invoice for your health insurance. (If you have any problems compiling this information, help is just a phone call away.) We’ll have some additional questions for you as well, but all this information is key to helping us find you the best PEO matches and the most realistic quotes. One of our ExpertPEO team members will reach out to you to confirm that all your information is accurate and answer any additional questions you may have.
Once we gather all your information, we do a comprehensive analysis to determine which PEOs are currently the best fit for you. This includes doing a side-by-side cost comparison of what you currently have in place versus the cost of working with a PEO. We review it with you and give you our best recommendations based on your firm’s unique needs. ExpertPEO saves you the time and hassles of multiple meetings and you only have to complete one application – dramatically reducing paperwork.
A process like this, conducted properly, could take months to complete on your own. Typically, ExpertPEO’s review process will take only 7 to 14 business days after we’ve compiled all your necessary information. Then, at your earliest convenience, we’ll set up an appointment to discuss your options.
After you’ve made your final decision, you will enter into an agreement with your chosen PEO. The next step is to formally enroll. ExpertEPO can help you with all the details, and if you change your mind at any time, we can handle that for you as well. We are your advocate and partner throughout the entire process, from start to implementation – both now and in the future. You can always call us if you have any issues or questions. We are here for you for the long haul, which includes doing an annual reassessment of your needs to make sure you’re always receiving the best service and price from your PEO provider. And again, we never charge you for our services.
