What makes a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) effective?

A good and efficient Professional Employer Organization (PEO) wants to perform better than larger companies, offering various kinds of benefits without the administrative work. A PEO becomes your co-employer to your business because you share the legal responsibilities with your PEO while being in total control of your business rules, decisions and practices. However, there are some practices which might change while working with a PEO, some decisions which they might take no risk at all, particularly when dealing with Human resource legal issues regarding payroll or compliance. Your business will need to abide to the PEO’s decisions.
