It’s more critical than ever to make sure your business has a stable foundation. Businesses must be able to adjust to unforeseen circumstances and keep a solid financial footing through hard times. Here are 4 ways a PEO can help your business have more financial stability and weather trying times:
PEO + OVERALL COST SAVINGS
Partnering with a PEO can help businesses gain access to big-company benefits, dedicated HR experts, and robust technology. All these services in a one-stop shop add up to major cost savings for your business. Take a look at these stats from the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO). Businesses that work with a PEO:
- Are 50% less likely to go out of business
- Have 10% to 14% less turnover
- Grow 7% to 9% faster
- Were 119% more likely to receive COVID-related PPP loans
- Were 60% less likely to permanently close during the COVID-19 pandemic
According to NAPEO, average PEO clients can expect a return on their investment based on cost savings alone. The cost savings from using a PEO is an average of $1,775 per year per employee!

INVALUABLE GUIDANCE DURING HARD TIMES
There are few better examples of how a PEO can provide guidance when you need it most than the COVID-19 pandemic. As a flurry of legislative initiatives was passed, our experts were hard at work creating a COVID-19 resources page, hosting live webinars, and sending out legislative updates that impacted our clients. Besides keeping our clients up-to-date on new workplace requirements and guidelines, we also compiled reports and info needed to apply for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans. Nextep’s guidance through COVID-19 helped businesses navigate major legislative and tax hurdles, which helped them survive the pandemic and become more financially stable.
TIME SAVED = MONEY SAVED
Often, entrepreneurs wear multiple hats, from owner and HR manager to payroll expert and more. Nextep takes care of the administrative HR tasks so you can focus more time on moving your business forward. As your company grows, so do the demands on your time. Nextep can take the administrative burden off your shoulders such as running your payroll flawlessly, bulking up your recruiting efforts, researching new HR legislation, and compiling W-2 info for you and your people.
