If you own a small to medium-sized business that employs people, you could use a PEO. PEO stands for Professional Employer Organization, which is an entity that offers employers a way to outsource everyday Human Resource tasks like Payroll, Employee Benefits and Workers’ Compensation. Taking advantage of the power of a PEO’s pooled resources can offer greater efficiency within your business operations.
You and a PEO enter into a co-employment relationship, where the PEO becomes the employer of record for tax and insurance purposes. The PEO then manages the everyday tasks of human resources administration and payroll, while you retain the overall management of your employee’s work. The PEO offers cost savings for these services by pooling their resources for the benefit of their clients.
Wharton Insurance & Financial Services partners with WorkSmart Systems Inc. an Indianapolis-based PEO founded in 1998. Our long-standing relationship is built on a commitment to providing cost-effective services based on best practices in human resources administration.
