About Us

A Professional Employer Organization is a firm that provides a service under which an employer can contract out employee management tasks, such as employee benefits, payroll and workers’ compensation, recruiting, risk/safety management, and training and development. The PEO does this by hiring a client company’s employees; thus, becoming their employer of record for tax purposes and insurance purposes. This practice is known as co-employment.
