Our PEO Process
With More Than 700 PEOs Available, How Can You Choose The Right One?
Choosing the right PEO can be difficult when you’re left to sift through hundreds of options.
- How can you be sure you’re getting a great rate?
- What criteria should you use to compare PEOs?
- Who can you turn to with questions and concerns?
Employee Leasing Experts is here to help you find the best PEO for your business. Our multi-step process ensures a personal, yet effective, system and it all begins when you contact us.
Our PEO Selection Process
Step 1: Evaluation
We want to get to know you and your business. How else can we pair you with the best PEO? Through a thorough questionnaire, we’ll discover everything we need to know to find a PEO that fits your budget, fits your needs and fits your style of doing business. We’re not here to change your company — we’re here to help you succeed.
We’ll learn about the history of your company, past workers’ compensation claims, how you process payroll, whether you have HR compliance issues, and any other areas that cause you a daily headache and can be easily solved by a PEO.
Step 2: Data Compilation
Once we learn about your company and infrastructure, we begin compiling this data into a more usable format for evaluating different PEOs. This is where our experts really shine! We’re the best at assessing your critical needs and locating PEO firms who can provide you with the those services — all at a great price!
Step 3: Our Strategy & Vendor Selection
When it comes to finding the best PEO for your business, we don’t rush the process. Formulating a strategy is what helps us stay on track and really narrow down the selection to only those PEOs who can best fit with your company. The decision to use a PEO was not made lightly by you, and we do everything we can to make this process not only painless but highly effective.
Step 4: Proposals & Rate Negotiation
Are you worried that PEOs will bombard you with all kinds of rates for services you don’t need or that you won’t be able to tell which rates are competitive and which ones are too good to be true? At ELE, we take care of this for you! We lay out explicit requirements for PEOs so they know exactly which services you need so you don’t waste your time or money.
Step 5: Reporting
Once the proposals are all in, we present the findings to you in an easy-to-understand report, with side-by-side comparisons and breakdown of pricing. For those business that already rely on a PEO, our reports offer a full comparison of your current PEO and other PEOs that may deliver a better value. Everything you need to make an informed decision is presented at your fingertips.
Step 6: Customized Service
Many business owners assume that a PEO’s services are set in stone. But that’s just not true. Professional Employer Organizations offer general services that can be customized to fit your business depending on your number of employees, your HR management needs, the types of benefits you offer or wish to offer, how you want to track time and attendance, and a whole lot more.
Step 7: Implementation
The last step in our initial process is ensuring you are set up for success with your new PEO. Implementation can be an exciting time for a business owner who wants to achieve additional growth thanks to a PEO. But we don’t just set you up with a PEO and call it quits. At Employee Leasing Experts, we provide PEO support through annual reviews to ensure your business goals are still being met.
