How PEOs Let You Tailor Your Benefits

PEOs leverage economies of scale and their better negotiating leverage to level the playing field for smaller companies. This access enables them to implement employee benefits that were previously out of reach due to cost or participation requirements. They bring cost and time savings, without a sacrifice of quality, that allows companies to provide for your employees and maintain compliance better than they could independently, helping to create a more conducive environment that improves retention.

Here are some of the perks they can bring to your business:

PEOs offer a broad range of benefit options, including health, dental, vision, and life insurance, as well as retirement and 401(k) options. This variety ensures companies can cater to the diverse needs of their workforce, making your company an attractive option for prospective employees. Having a range of choice options available means that your existing and future staff can choose the options that best suit their needs so they can get quality coverage at a cost that works for them.

Cost-Effective Solutions

By pooling employees from multiple companies together, PEOs can negotiate better rates for benefits. This structure makes it financially viable for small and medium-sized businesses to offer competitive packages without the prohibitive costs usually associated with them. PEO partners offer businesses significant cost-savings solely with their benefit packages – but also from streamlining operations. An HR partner bolsters your internal team, allowing them to turn your HR processes into a company asset.

PEOs Are More Than Just Payroll

Customizable Packages

The ability to tailor benefits packages to the specific needs of the company and its employees ensures a better fit. This flexibility means your benefits offering can grow and adapt with your business and workforce. Many companies sign on with a PEO or HR partner initially for help with their payroll or other benefits needs then add on services as they grow and their HR needs grow with them.

PEOs provide expert advice on the most valued types of benefits across different industries and demographics, which helps companies make informed decisions that align with their employees' needs. As companies grow and their HR needs change, they often have no way of knowing what changes and regulatory procedures they must adhere to. An HR partner can be instrumental in helping companies adapt to their growth – so they can stay compliant and hold funds within their company.

Managing workplace benefits comes with a heavy burden of compliance and administration. PEOs handle these tasks, ensuring that your company meets all legal requirements while allowing you to focus on core business operations.

Employee Wellness Programs

Wellness programs are increasingly important for attracting and retaining top talent. Many PEOs assist companies in implementing these programs, contributing to a healthier and more engaged workforce. One of the critical benefits of implementing these programs is that it demonstrates to your staff how much you care about their well-being. Wellness programs could be step challenges, but they could also be programs that encourage workers to spend time outside or with their families to recharge. However you choose, wellness programs give your company an opportunity to support staff in meaningful – and often overlooked – ways.

Technology Platforms

Robust technology platforms offered by PEOs enhance the overall employee experience by making it easier for employees to manage their benefits. That convenience making their workload more efficient, making it easier to do their jobs and stay up-to-date. It gives your employees easier access to their benefits or to request time off.
