For an industry that serves over 2.5 million people, Professional Employer Organizations can still be a bit of a mystery for the average business owner. The industry has helped businesses manage important HR functions for decades, but one of the most common questions owners ask is “Why have I never heard of PEOs before?”

There are a few reasons for this, starting with the fact that there’s no simple, one-sentence explanation for what PEOs do.

Why Do I Need HR for a Five-employee Company?

by Dan FlanaganJune 20, 2017 8:00 AM
