The Pros and Cons of Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs)
Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) earned over $20 billion in gross revenues in 2022. Their clients, primarily small businesses with fewer than 20 employees, outsource to the PEOs the responsibilities for payroll administration, employee benefits, workers’ compensation, human resource management, and related operations. Businesses trying to reduce costs and focus on growth may find PEO’s to be an attractive option. It is an option, however, that comes with advantages and disadvantages for both employer and employee.
The National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO) cites a number of benefits from PEOs. The benefits for employers include:
- Access to professionals with expertise in human resources, payroll, risk management, and employee benefits.
- Assistance with labor law compliance.
- Professional claim management.
- Reduced and controlled administrative costs.
- Professionally written employee handbooks, policies, and procedures.
- Relief from some employment-related liabilities.
- Reduced workers’ compensation costs resulting from improved workplace safety.
- Reduced health insurance costs, better coverage, larger provider networks due to group purchasing power.
Employees may also benefit from PEOs in several ways.
- Access to benefits that might not have otherwise been available, such as 401(k) plans, cafeteria plans, insurance, and credit union membership.
- Timely and accurate paychecks.
- Protection under federal labor laws.
- Improved communication among and between employees.
- Employees who move from one PEO to another do not necessarily lose eligibility for benefits.
- Efficient and timely claim processing.
- Assistance with employment-related issues.

PEOs carry some risks. A poorly managed PEO firm may mishandle payroll and benefits or may go out of business, leaving the client with its obligations. The employer may also be legally liable for the actions or inactions of the PEO. For example, if the PEO firm fails to comply with regulations, it may be the employer who bears ultimate responsibility. Also, the employer has a co-employer relationship with PEO. The PEO has say over who gets hired. To date, we rarely if ever have seen this to be an issue.
Employers who decide to use PEOs should carefully evaluate the firms it considers. The financial stability of the firm and of the insurance companies providing its benefits are a major consideration, as the failure of either may leave the employer with unfunded obligations. The firm’s experience in the employer’s industry, track record of success, and safety record are also important. Another consideration is the range of benefits the firm offers; a plan that does not meet the employer’s needs will not be worth the expense of hiring the leasing firm.
PEOs is a big step and not one to be taken lightly. Employers must weigh the upsides and downsides of leasing and make decisions that is best for their employees and their businesses.
