Is a PEO Right For You?: Payroll Edition

It’s always good to research your options before making a business decision. The questions may differ depending on the industry your company is in, but payroll plays a factor in every business, and it sure isn’t cheap. 

Statistics show that it costs small- to mid-size companies an average of $2,000 per employee per year to handle payroll. Even if you’re a small- or mid-size company, a Professional Employer Organization like Group Management Services may be a good fit to help streamline your payroll needs.

Of course, working with a PEO is a big decision, so you’ll want to find out what they can offer your business. Here are some ways to find out if a PEO is good fit to handle your payroll.
