images (2)Why Use a PEO Broker, and what are the benefits of using a PEO Broker?

Have you ever tried obtaining a mortgage directly from the bank?? Have you ever shopped for a health insurance quote or Workers’ Compensation quote directly from the carriers??

It is quite time consuming negotiating, understanding and reviewing each and every carrier’s proposal.

Imagine, if you were the General Contractor of your own home??

Can you envision how much time you will be spending on interviewing and pricing out the many vendors you will need to complete you home.

Isn’t that why we all use Insurance Brokers, Mortgage Brokers and General Contractors?? Does that make sense??

The same is true in the PEO industry.

Have you ever tried to obtain a PEO proposal??

There are over 700 PEO companies in the USA as of today. PEOs provide a vast variety of services, and each and every PEO company has its strengths and weaknesses in all the services they provide. PEOs also have many different products, services, technology and requirements that vary from PEO to PEO. Some PEOs are industry specific and will only partner with companies in their target industries. Some are regionally specific, and only partner with companies in their region. And the list goes on and on…..

Why would someone want to spend extensive amounts of time to research each PEO he wishes to obtain a proposal from and then determine if they are a fit?? Many times you can spend an enormous amount of time researching, only to realize that particular PEO is just not for you. It can literally be a full time job pricing out PEO companies to find the one that is the right match for your specific business needs.

By using a PEO broker, the business owner only needs to give out his business information necessary for a proposal to one person. The broker has thorough knowledge of the companies he or she represents, and can give an unbiased opinion on each one of them. Since the PEO broker knows the strengths and weaknesses of each PEO, he or she can determine which one is appropriate and best fit for the companies specific business needs.

PEO proposals can be very lengthy, and difficult to compare one to another, as there is no standard proposal format. Some PEOs can bundle their rates together and you cannot breakdown the various components, like workers’ compensation, state unemployment rates or administrative fees. It can get pretty confusing. A PEO broker has extensive knowledge and will be able to assist you in better understanding the different proposal and pricing formats, as well as navigating through all the financial complexities.

A PEO Consulting Firm makes it their business to understand the wide differences among the many types of PEOs as well as the specific needs of the client. They assist their client’s in navigating through the complexities of the PEO industry. PEO brokers establish relationships with three types of PEOs. National, Regional and Niche therefore they can cater to almost every industry, and find the correct fit for their client’s specific business needs. Additionally, PEO Consultants have the ability to negotiate on behalf of their clients’ for better pricing and service. Due to the larger volume of business the PEOs receive from PEO Consulting Firms and the favorable professional business relationship, the client is often in a position to get the most competitive rates.

In conclusion here are some of the benefits of working with a PEO Broker:
