PEO

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) manages critical human resources administration and compliance so you can stay focused on core business priorities. ERB offers PEO solutions to simplify payroll, benefits, workers’ comp, HR, etc.

As your outsourced HR department, we become a co-employer of your staff to handle payroll, taxes, insurance, and compliance. Your employees still work under your management while we take over all back-office tasks.

Understanding Professional Employer Organization in Employee Benefits

Key PEO Benefits

Partnering with ERB as your PEO provides:

  • Payroll administration - paychecks, direct deposit, garnishments, etc.
  • Payment of payroll taxes
  • HR services - onboarding, employee handbooks, contracting
  • Benefits management - plans, enrollment, compliance
  • Workers’ comp liability coverage
  • Compliance expertise - federal, state, and local laws
  • Access to Fortune 500-level benefits & technology

We also provide local support and customization, which is impossible with national PEOs.

PEO Cost Savings

Many small businesses waste thousands of dollars annually on DIY payroll and redundancy across providers. Our all-in-one PEO solution brings efficiency through the following: 

  • Lower administrative expenses 
  • Group purchasing power 
  • Audited billing procedures 
  • Streamlined workflows 
  • Economies of scale 

The right PEO provides big-business capabilities on a small business budget. We guarantee yearly savings by eliminating fees across services. 

Worksite Employee Classification

Under our PEO structure, we become the W2 employer through worksite employee classification for tax purposes. This means:

Employees get paychecks/tax forms from the PEO 

  • PEO handles all payroll tax payments 
  • Payroll loads fund PEO bank account 
  • PEO pays workers comp and liability insurance 

Operationally, employees still report to company leadership in their actual work. The PEO arrangement is primarily financial.

For contractors, we can offer paymaster services without worksite employee classification.
