  • (1888PressRelease) November 24, 2011 - Fort Lauderdale, Fla. -- AlphaStaff Group, Inc. ("AlphaStaff"), one of the nation's largest professional employer organizations (PEO), recently examined the benefits of working with companies through a shared employment model.

    1. PEOs provide all types of human resources services including administering payroll and benefits and assuming/managing risk and compliance.
    2. For companies, a PEO can help control workforce direction in terms of termination and hires, determine compensation, conduct performance reviews and help manage the workplace.
    3. PEOs are responsible for paying wages and employment taxes and help improve businesses' labor law compliance and provide access to Fortune 500 benefits.
    4. The National Association of PEOs reports the average client is a small business with an average of 19 employees, and increasingly, larger businesses are joining PEOs. Clients range from accounting firms to high-tech companies to manufacturers to government agencies.
    5. PEOs replace multiple agencies and contractors which aids in reducing costs and aggregation, while still retaining management oversight of the workforce/organization.
