Running a business comes with more responsibility than most people realize. The administrative requirements to stay compliant while growing a successful business can overwhelm most. Some business owners will hire office managers, an HR generalist, interns, etc., but some completely put off the HR needs of their company. This can cause major issues down the line with compliance issues, payroll dilemmas, job description disputes, and the list goes on.
The Professional Employer Organization (PEO) industry exists to help business owners outsource their back-office functions to focus on the real reason they developed their company, which is to generate revenue.
