3 Ways Your Small Business Benefits from Using a PEO
Compared to other businesses, companies who use Professional Employer Organizations
Grow 7-9% faster
Since the December 2004, the inception of the Intuit Small Business Employment Index, employment at PEO clients has grown more than 7 percent higher than at small businesses overall.
Have 23-32% lower employee turnover
The average overall employee turnover rate in the United States was approximately 42 percent per year, based on 2012 data. It is 28 to 32 percent for companies that used PEOs for at least four quarters.
Are 50% less likely to go out of business
Businesses that use PEOs are approximately 50 percent less likely to fail (permanently go “out of business”) from one year to the next when compared to similar companies in the population as a whole. The overall business failure rate among private businesses in the United States as a whole is approximately 8 percent per year, based on 2012 data. It is approximately 4 percent per year for those companies that used PEOs for at least four quarters.
Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) provide human resource services to their small business clients—paying wages and taxes and assuming responsibility and liability for compliance with myriad state and federal laws and regulations. In addition, PEOs often provide workers with access to 401(k) plans, health, dental and life insurance, dependent care and other benefits not typically provided by small businesses. Between 2 and 3 million people are covered by a PEO arrangement.
