Where have you been PEO? | PEO Blog

Wednesday November 23, 2011

So anyway, it’s really funny that in one week I’ve had two of the questions that make me laugh come up.  Yesterday’s blog was addressed the question, “Why doesn’t everyone use a PEO?”  So yesterday I started participating in a business owner’s roundtable where we discuss issues that relate to business issues from an ownership perspective. 

So we start going around doing our introductions and after I did my introduction and then went into an explanation of what a Professional Employer Organization does, the individual next to me looks at me and says “Where have you been?”  I need you to help me…. So if you read yesterday’s PEO Blog you know I typically name situations.  I looked at the individual and said, you’re a 10 percenter! 

That’s right, a 10 percenter!  What’s a 10 percenter you ask?  About 10% of the population will get it, they understand the concept immediately and grasp how a PEO can help their business in regards to Human Resources, Workers Compensation, Benefits, Payroll and more – those individuals are 10 percenters.

I love 10 percenters, they are what keeps me going, they totally understand that their attention should be given to running their business and not dealing with the employment side of business.  In this particular case the individuals business suffered from the distraction, plus their personal life was taking a hit. 

PEO’s, and the entire concept of Human Resource Outsourcing can give the business owner some long sought after freedom… freedom to run their business, while the PEO does its job. 

If you’re a business owner looking for some freedom, find yourself a quality PEO, don’t wait do it now!
