Bossjob's Connect with a PEO to hire 35% faster

Most especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, employers need to improve or adjust their recruitment and hiring efforts to reach more qualified talents and implement cost-effective processes at that.

One way to help employers hire workers is through working with a professional employer organization or PEO. Companies that use a PEO often enjoy a lot of advantages, both short- and long-term. To see why you should consider hiring one, use this guide to know how a PEO works and how it can help set your organization up for success.

How a Professional Employer Organization Works

Before anything else, here are some basics you need to know about what a PEO actually is.

1. What is a PEO?

Ultimately, a PEO aims to provide organizations with an alternative to in-house HR management. Considered as a co-employment model, this setup is when the PEO hires the organization’s employees and then leases them to the client. Having that said, the client retains full control of their staff and business. On the other hand, the PEO assumes all employee-related administration and liability.

2. What does a PEO offer?

Depending on a client’s needs, PEOs can offer customized and comprehensive service models to cater to the client’s hiring efforts. Some of the most common PEO services are:

  • Recruitment
  • Employee Support and Onboarding
  • Turnovers
  • Training
  • Payroll Processing
  • Tax Filing
  • Benefits Administration
  • Risk Management
  • Compliance with Labor Laws
  • Retirement Plans

3. What kinds of businesses usually benefit from hiring PEOs?

PEOs are considered a good fit for almost every industry and organization, big or small. To note, the sectors that can benefit from hiring PEOs include:

  • Health services
  • Legal services
  • Management consulting services
  • Business services
  • Computer services and technology
  • Engineering services
  • Accounting, auditing, and bookkeeping
  • Securities brokers and dealers
  • Real estate and property management
  • Manufacturing

4. What does a PEO’s process typically look like?

To help ensure a smooth process, clients are required to endorse to the PEOs the specific job description for the roles needed to be filled. With this, make sure you’re able to provide the PEO with all the necessary details for your job openings. Once this is done, the PEO can now proceed to source and screen ideal candidates for your requirements.

In general, a partner PEO follows a certain process:

  1. Collect and discuss the job requirements from the client
  2. Search for ideal candidates
  3. Screen shortlisted candidates and endorse them for client interview
  4. Assist in the onboarding process of qualified candidates
  5. Manage employee-related functions such as reporting, training, and payroll on behalf of the client or company upon employment

With all these, a PEO basically serves as an administrative employer while you, as the client, serve as the worksite employer. The main difference lies mainly in the authority you hold and the responsibilities that a PEO should perform.

Top Benefits of Working with a PEO

Now that you have a good understanding of how a professional employer organization works, let’s now discuss why you should consider hiring one by looking at some of its major benefits.

1. Better employee perks

In this day and age when employees are becoming more competitive as they should, one common thing that they deem highly important to overall job satisfaction is their benefits package. Since PEOs can significantly increase the pool of employees, the cost of insurance and healthcare can also be reduced. This, among others, allows even small businesses to afford generous benefits packages which are also effective in attracting and onboarding highly qualified candidates.

Also, PEOs help their clients retain talent by having a lower employee turnover rate. This is because many employees report greater work engagement. Apart from that, they are more willing and empowered to consult HR for any workplace-related concerns they have.

2. Optimal HR experience

As mentioned earlier, PEOs are effective in helping retain exceptional employees. This helps deliver a more worthwhile HR experience on your end as you can save time and resources in your recruitment efforts. Aside from that, you can even gain access to top-performing candidates in the local job market. You can rely on your partner PEO to do the work for you to source and screen hundreds of applicants and talents that fit your requirements. This process is crucial for you to focus on interviewing the highly qualified ones to fill in your job openings.

Furthermore, partnering with a PEO also lets you offer your employees access to a wider range of exclusive discount programs, career growth initiatives, and other perks you deem fit for your organization. Lastly, you can also expect your partner PEO to help provide a streamlined process for payroll, tax, and reporting requirements.

3. Reduced business costs and increased revenue

Being able to cut costs on recruitment, training programs, and even employee management is also a notable perk of hiring a PEO. Since PEOs are HR experts, they can use their existing resources and infrastructure to perform administrative tasks more efficiently than a small HR team possibly could. To add, PEOs are often able to negotiate better rates with insurance companies and other benefits providers due to the fact that they’re co-employing so many workers.

With lower business expenses, you can allot more of your resources to other core aspects of your business. This can help result in increased profits over time.

  1. Hi

    I am writing to you on behalf Giejo Magazine. We have received a substantial number of enquiries asking us to feature bossjob.ph in our “Business Spotlight” section covering inspirational business stories (not sure if these enquiries were from your PR team or customers).

    We would be happy to feature bossjob.ph in the next month’s edition of the magazine.

    Here is a bit about the “Business Spolight” section

    The purpose of the section is to provide readers with an insight into how the business was started, a story about its founders, their motivations for starting the business, an executive overview of the company and what it does, a review of its products/services, how it compares to other companies in the industry. The piece should be informative rather than promotional. We are interested more in putting the founders/owners in the spotlight and tracking their journey. The purpose of this piece is to inspire people and not to promote products or services.

    Please let me know if you are interested. I would appreciate if you could revert to me by the end of the week as we are pretty tight on the deadlines. In your reply, please copy in [email protected]

    Kind regards

  2. Hey

    I thought the below piece would be an excellent addition to the blog on bossjob.ph. If you feel it is the right fit, please feel free to publish it. Do let me know if you need anymore information. Please copy in our expert Ieva ([email protected]) in your reply.

    Carrier oils contain a range of beneficial components including vitamins, minerals, nutrients, antioxidants and other fat-soluble vitamins. They can be used for a variety of different reasons and can help with hydration, collagen production, skin tone, soothing irritated skin and repairing sun damage. The type of carrier oil you choose will depend on what your desired outcome is.

    Knowing which carrier oil to use for your skin type can be a daunting prospect. That’s why the health & wellness team at Loxa Beauty have done the hard work for you. They’ve completed an extensive review of the 15 most common carrier oils and how they can benefit your skin.

    Anastasia Filipenko, a health & wellness psychologist & dermatologist states that “Carrier oils are one of the main ingredients used in facial cleansers, exfoliators, balms, lotions, serums and face oils. When you use the right carrier oil for your particular skin tone you can expect to see amazing results.”

    Commonly used carrier oils include coconut oil, jojoba oil, rosehip oil and sweet almond oil. Each oil has different benefits for your skin so it’s important to do your research before you start using a new oil. For example Coconut oil is great for stimulating collagen production and healing wounds whilst Jojoba oil can help to balance out excessive oil production, giving you a more even skin tone.

    Anastasia recommends finding carrier oils that are high in oleic. “Oils that have a high oleic content absorb faster into your skin which means your skin won’t feel oily after you apply it.”

    As well as choosing the right oil for your skin it’s also important to buy quality oils. “Aim to buy carrier oils that are unbleached, unrefined and unfiltered as these types of oils retain more of their nutrients from the original source such as the seed or nut.” says relationship and health & wellness psychologist, Kristina Shafarenko.

    When used correctly, carrier oils can be a great addition to your daily skincare routine. The full carrier oils infographic and blog can be found here and was created by Loxa Beauty.
