PEO (Professional Employer Organization)

Businesses today need help to manage increasingly complex employee-related matters such as health benefits, workers' compensation claims, payroll, payroll tax compliance, and unemployment insurance claims. Partnering with a Professional Employment Organization (PEO) enables companies to share these responsibilities while gaining access to experts in human resources management. This allows PEO clients to focus on the operational and revenue-producing side of their business.

A PEO helps client companies cost-effectively outsource the management of payroll, workers' compensation, human resources and employee benefits, which then enables clients to focus on their core competencies and grow their bottom line.

Businesses that partner with a PEO are:

  • 50% more likely to stay in business when compared to businesses that go it alone

  • Enjoy a 27% return on the investment by saving time and money in employee administration

  • Have lower employee turnover and are more competitive in the war for talent

  • They grow FASTER because of improved efficiencies and economies of scale

Apex HRO provides an integrated service to effectively manage human resource responsibilities and employer risks for their clients. Apex delivers these services by establishing and maintaining a co-employer relationship with the employees at the client's worksite and by contractually assuming certain employer rights, responsibilities and risk.

  • Simplified and easy employment administration through a high tech HRIS platform
