What Is A PEO? How Does It Help Employers?

What is PEO (Professional Employer Organization)? How Does it Help Employers?

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.

What is At-Will Employment? At-will employment is a common law rule which means that an employer may terminate anytime for any reason with or without cause or notice for any reason by law or no reason at all. Too many Ohio employers rely on at will employment to terminate an employee without checking all of the facts and really taking it on a case by case basis. At-Will Employment and the BIG 3Exceptions for Ohio Employers Illegal Reasons for Termination For example, you can terminate an employee if they come into work with pink, blue, or any crazy colored hair but you cant for a social anxiety disorder, and it becomes a slippery slope if there are no performance issues. The employee that has the pink hair could hire an attorney and believe that she was fired because of her social anxiety disorder and not her hair. So, you havegot to be very careful. As an employer, you want to make sure that there are no illegal reasons for termination such as social anxiety disorders or any disabilities;

The Importance of Immediately Documenting Performance Problems

The importance of Ohio employers documenting their employees performance issues cannot be overstated. Too many employers rely on employment at will, and thats a dangerous position to take because the cost of turnover is so high. If an Employee Doesnt Know That Something is Wrong, They Cant Fix It If your employees dont realize that their performance is not up to standards or that certain behavior is bad, then they wont know to correct that issue.

As an employer, it is your responsibility to communicate and document the issue to allow your employee to understand that their actions, or lack thereof,

We at Surety HR want to stress the importance of a well-written employee handbook. It helps both the employee and the employer. Some employers have conflicting views on whether or not to have a handbook. However, its in the best interest of both partiesto have a handbook. 8 Reasons to Have an Employee Handbook 1) First of all, it introduces employees to the organizations mission, vision, values, and culture which sets the foundation for how the employees fit in. 2) The second thing it does is that it communicates to the employees what is expected of them; the benchmarks, sets the tone for employees on safety, timekeeping, reporting, and so on. 3) The third thing is that it educates employees on what they can expect from management and leadership which helps eliminate confusion and inconsistencies. 4) A handbook also helps ensure that key company policies are clearly and consistently communicated as no policy is effective if its not practiced. 5) It showcases the benefits of the
