Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) benefit any size business—from a team of five to more than five thousand. Where a PEO can really shine, though, is the transition between these two points. Small companies begin with a small-business culture that they often fear losing during times of growth. The great communication and close-knit feel of a small team can be completely lost in the shuffle as a company hires and restructures. That’s where a PEO comes in.

Here are a few ways that a PEO partnership can help you maintain your workplace culture as your company scales.

PEOs Give You the Gift of Time

Among the many benefits of joining a PEO, the advantage of time may be one of the most impactful. Your leadership team spends a great deal of their time at work handling routine HR-related tasks. These tasks take time away from focusing on your core business functions and building relationships with your employees—two elements of your business that dramatically affect workplace culture. Your PEO ensures that your daily HR tasks are running smoothly and within necessary compliance requirements, leaving your leadership team with the capacity to focus on finer details that shape your company culture and employee experience.

PEOs Can Help Attract and Retain Quality Talent

Did you know that PEOs can decrease employee turnover by as much as 14%? Hiring and employee retention are two areas that directly affect company culture, and, conveniently, are also two areas that your PEO can help you manage. Your employee benefits package and streamlined HR processes can have a significant impact on your current employees’ satisfaction and new employees’ interest.

From designing orientation and training to overseeing employee reviews, your PEO partnership enriches your employees’ experience while making your company more marketable to new employees who will fit into the unique culture you’ve created.

PEOs Make Employees Feel Taken Care Of

Employees today are looking to move away from what they consider to be corporate culture. The larger your company grows, the more mechanical and impersonal it could become. A PEO allows you and your leadership team to concentrate on what makes your company unique, and to put time into keeping it that way. A PEO partnership gives you the support to take care of your employees’ well-being in both their personal and professional lives while maintaining company culture and continuing to help your business grow—without the fear of leaving your employees’ best interests behind.
