Surety HR has partnered with Virteom to engage our customers about our services. In our video, Jacqui and Andy talk about moving your business forward by utilizing a PEO or Professional Employer Organization. Watch or read the transcription below!

What Is A Professional Employer Organization Anyway?

PEO stands for Professional Employer Organization, and PEOs help small businesses handle all of their employment related bugaboos. The payroll, workers compensation, human resources - all those things that prevent them from being profitable - we take them off their plate and let them push the HR easy button. 

What are the most important concerns that your employees come to you with? 

Not to sound cliché, but they don't know, what they don't know. A lot of employers go into business knowing they have a great product or service. Then they have to hire employees because they know that they have to hire good labor in order to be successful managing that human capital. 

You can have assets, you can have insurance, you can have everything else, but the most important thing in this business is your people and those services and products are only as good as the people providing them.

Your team can be great and self-sufficient, but there's going to be situations where you're thinking, ‘oh man what are we doing?’ That's where we step in and provide that service to employers for a fraction of what it would cost for them to either manage it themselves or hire an internal Human Resources department.
