Maintaining a quality workforce without having to endure administrative headaches may seem a dream to many business owners. Co-employment is a viable option, but iPEO Solutions (http://www.ipeosolutions.com) points out what business owners need to recognize when they commit to such an agreement.

TAMPA, FL—Entrepreneurs are often inspired by big dreams and the possibility of making them come true, but they don’t always relish the administrative headaches that accompany such transformational enterprises. iPEO Solutions (http://www.ipeosolutions.com) helps minimize organizational pain so innovators can concentrate on the vision that motivated them in the first place.

“In business process outsourcing, a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) provides a diverse range of employment-related products, services and functions including integrated payroll, benefits, risk and human resource management,” explains Michael A. Ortoll, CEO and founder of iPEO Solutions.

Ortoll, a Florida State University graduate and Miami native with strong ties to the Cuban/Hispanic community, is a seasoned insurance specialist with 25-plus years as an industry executive. His experience, technical knowledge and professional relationships make him one of the PEO industry’s leading dealmakers.

Ortoll’s company specializes in delivering co-employment alternatives for a variety of industries, including: Private Equity portfolio firms, Associations, Franchises, Real Estate/Property Management, Healthcare (Senior Housing), Construction, Hospitality and Transportation.

“We can deliver lower Workers Comp costs, including better service aimed at keeping costs lower, as well as provide improved HR compliance and Payroll Administration via higher-end technology and resources.”

In addition, iPEO can help manage implementation of the Affordable Health Care Act and improve cash flow through “pay-as-you-go insurance and taxes,” thus spreading out a company’s cash a bit.

According to the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO)—which dubs itself “The Voice of the PEO Industry”—PEO relationships involve “a contractual allocation and sharing of employer responsibilities between the PEO and the client. This shared employment relationship is called co-employment.”

In co-employment arrangements, the NAPEO stipulates that Professional Employer Organizations contractually assume substantial employer rights, responsibilities, and risk through the establishment and maintenance of an employer relationship with the workers assigned to its clients.

NAPEO spotlights seven key points regarding co-employment, emphasizing that a Professional Employer Organization “establishes a contractual relationship with its clients whereby the PEO”:

 “Co-employs workers at client locations, and thereby assumes responsibility as an employer for specified purposes of the workers assigned to the client locations.”

 “Reserves a right of direction and control of the employees.”

 “Shares or allocates with the client employer responsibilities in a manner consistent with maintaining the client's responsibility for its product or service.”

 “Pays wages and employment taxes of the employee out of its own accounts.”

 “Reports, collects and deposits employment taxes with state and federal authorities.”

  “Establishes and maintains an employment relationship with its employees that is intended to be long term and not temporary.”

  “Retains a right to hire, reassign and fire the employees.”

An extensive elaboration about co-employment by industry experts can be found at http://www.napeo.org/peoindustry/coemployers.cfm.

It should be noted, however, that analysts agree that PEOs neither provide daily supervision nor get involved with the recruiting process—except when necessary, such as in background checks and drug testing.

In fact, some people confuse PEOs with temporary help companies. Here’s how a spokesperson at the American Staffing Association (ASA) explained the difference to Entrepreneur.com: "Generally speaking, temporary help companies recruit employees and assign them to client businesses to help with short-term work overload or special projects on an as-needed basis."

Conversely, Entrepreneur.com defines a PEO as, “A company that technically ‘employs’ the workers of several other companies and oversees all HR-related functions”

"No pain, no gain” is a phrase associated with events like the Olympics, but it’s no less appropriate for entrepreneurs trying to lift their business to “the next level.” That’s why iPEO Solutions (http://www.iPEOsolutions.com) works with the industry’s best PEOs to help businesses improve cash flow and reduce costs.

Tampa, FL—Bob Dylan once observed, “Behind every beautiful thing, there's some kind of pain.” He might have been writing about entrepreneurs initially caught up in a mountaintop experience who wake up one day lost in a nightmarish mound of paperwork. That’s when it’s time to contact iPEO Solutions (http://www.iPEOsolutions.com) about finding the right Professional Employer Organization (PEO).

Studies reveal that’s what more businesses are doing.

The National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO) has reported that employment growth among PEO clients since 2010 has been 9 percent higher than other small businesses (based on the Intuit Small Business Employment Index), and 4 percent higher than employment growth in the U.S. economy overall.

“Most people invest in the services of a PEO to thwart some level of pain,” says Michael Ortoll, founder and CEO of iPEO Solutions, explaining that a Professional Employer Organization is an outsourcing firm that handles Workers Comp/Risk Management, Employee Benefits, HR & Payroll Administration, etc.

“We can deliver lower Workers Comp costs, including better service aimed at keeping costs lower, as well as provide improved HR compliance and Payroll Administration via higher-end technology and resources,” Ortoll said.

iPEO Solutions specializes in providing co-employment alternatives to a variety of industries, including: Private Equity portfolio firms, Associations, Franchises, Real Estate/Property Management, Healthcare (Senior Housing), Construction, Hospitality and Transportation.

“This is what we do and why they hire us,” he said.

In addition, iPEO can help manage implementation of the Affordable Health Care Act and improve cash flow through “pay-as-you-go insurance and taxes,” thus spreading out a company’s cash.

In their celebrated report “Professional Employer Organizations: What Are They, Who Uses Them and Why Should We Care?” Britton Lombardi and Yukako Ono of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago wrote:

“Over the years, the PEO industry has undergone continued transformation. Beginning in the early 1980s, PEOs started out as firms that conducted payroll processing for their client firms. Payrolling involved preparing and distributing payroll checks, direct deposit of wages to bank accounts, payroll data maintenance, filing local, state and federal government paperwork, and vacation and sick leave tracking.”

iPEO’s Ortoll summarizes it like this: PEOs help companies shift from time-consuming administrative tasks to revenue-producing activities, thus lowering the level of pain endured to achieve success.

“iPEO Solutions tailors PEO solutions producing the greatest value for its clients,” Ortoll said. “iPEO works with the industry’s best PEOs. We vet each provider through a due diligence process, ensuring all participating PEOs meet the certain key requirements.”

What are the simple secrets to the PEO industry’s growing success? The Florida Association of Professional Employer Organizations (FAPEO) lists them as:

  • Controlling costs -Saving time and paperwork hassles
  • Providing professional compliance (e.g., payroll, IRCA, EEOC) -Reducing turnover and attracting better employees
  • Providing claims management (e.g., workers’ compensation, unemployment insurance)
  • Providing better benefits packages
  • Providing professional human resource services (e.g., employee handbooks, forms, policies and procedures)
  • Reducing accounting costs

Entrepreneur.com puts it this way: “By combining the employees of several companies into one large pool, professional employer organizations (also known as employee leasing companies) can offer business owners better rates on health-care and workers' compensation coverage. The net effect can be significant savings of your time and money.”

It should be noted, however, analysts agree that PEOs neither provide daily supervision nor get involved with the recruiting process—except when necessary, such as in background checks and drug testing.

Michael Ortoll, founder and CEO of iPEO Solutions (http://www.iPEOsolutions.com), will attend the “Best Practices in PEO Risk Management” workshop Feb. 25-26 in Tampa. Ortoll’s participation is just one example of iPEO’s commitment to stay on the leading edge of crucial industry issues to better serve its clients.

Tampa, FL—Top risk managers, key insurance executives, regulatory experts, and policy makers in the Professional Employer Organizations (PEO) industry will attend the upcoming Risk Management Workshop in Tampa—and among the notable participants will be Michael Ortoll, founder and CEO of iPEO Solutions (http://www.iPEOsolutions.com).

Ortoll is a seasoned insurance professional with 25-plus years as an industry executive. He began his insurance career with Liberty Mutual as a claims adjuster and later became one of their top producers in both the middle-market and national account areas.

The “Best Practices in PEO Risk Management” workshop takes place Feb. 25-26 at the Tampa Airport Marriott. It represents one of the largest gatherings of PEO risk management professionals, carriers, brokers, and agents.

“iPEO Solutions works with the industry’s best PEOs,” the veteran executive said, adding that iPEO helps companies select the right PEO through a proven step-by-step process:

“We meet with decision-makers to determine business needs in order to identify areas for potential savings and improvements.”

“We submit a proposal based on a company’s specific needs to qualified PEO vendors.”

“We evaluate the options and recommend the best PEO for a business . . .”

“Finally, we monitor the deliverables, ensuring clients receive the expected service.”

“This is what we do and why they hire us,” he explained. The upcoming workshop that Ortoll will attend is being presented by the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO), the largest trade association for PEOs nationally.

According to NAPEO, “Since 2010, employment growth among PEO clients has been 9 percent higher than other small businesses (based on the Intuit Small Business Employment Index), and 4 percent higher than employment growth in the U.S. economy overall.”

Why are Professional Employer Organizations successful in such tough and economically challenging times?

Ortoll put it this way: “Most people invest in the services of a PEO to thwart some level of pain.” That pain results from a variety of reasons, including issues like Workers Comp/Risk Management, Employee Benefits, HR and Payroll. iPEO helps clients shift from time-consuming administrative tasks to revenue-producing activities—thus lowering the level of pain endured to reach success

“We can deliver lower Workers Comp costs, including better service aimed at keeping costs lower, as well as provide improved HR compliance and Payroll Administration via higher-end technology and resources.”

That means iPEO can help deliver Fortune 500 type employee benefits at affordable prices and advise on all viable coverage options, Ortoll said.

In addition, iPEO can help manage implementation of the Affordable Health Care Act and improve cash flow through “pay-as-you-go insurance and taxes,” thus spreading out a company’s cash a bit.

“Outsourcing to a Professional Employer Organization allows companies to leverage a PEO’s world-class technology and personnel,” Ortoll concluded. “We evaluate the options and recommend the best PEO for a business. In addition, we oversee the customized onboarding and enrollment services to make the transition to a PEO a success.”

More firms are considering Professional Employer Organizations—and for good reason: iPEO Solutions (http://www.iPEOsolutions.com) says PEOs help companies shift from time-consuming administrative tasks to revenue-producing activities, thus lowering the level of pain endured to achieve success—but key questions must be asked in choosing a PEO.

Tampa, FL—Professional Employer Organizations handle issues like Workers Comp/Risk Management, Employee Benefits, HR and Payroll, so companies can concentrate on what they do best: Create jobs and expand the economy. iPEO Solutions (http://www.iPEOsolutions.com) makes sure firms know what to ask when considering a PEO.

“Most people invest in the services of a PEO to thwart some level of pain,” Michael Ortoll, founder and CEO of iPEO Solutions, candidly observes. “We can deliver lower Workers Comp costs, including better service aimed at keeping costs lower, as well as provide improved HR compliance and Payroll Administration via higher-end technology and resources.”

That means iPEO can help deliver Fortune 500 type employee benefits at affordable prices and advise on all viable coverage options, Ortoll explained.

“This is what we do and why they hire us,” he said.

In addition, iPEO can help manage implementation of the Affordable Health Care Act and improve cash flow through “pay-as-you-go insurance and taxes,” thus spreading out a company’s cash a bit.

These are just some of the reasons for PEO’s gain in popularity.

According to the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO), “Since 2010, employment growth among PEO clients has been 9 percent higher than other small businesses (based on the Intuit Small Business Employment Index), and 4 percent higher than employment growth in the U.S. economy overall.”

These and other findings about how Professional Employer Organizations help fuel small business growth can be found at http://www.napeo.org/docs/McBassi_keyfindings.pdf

Why are Professional Employer Organizations statistically more successful in such challenging and uncertain economic times? Because PEOs tackle time-consuming administrative tasks while allowing savvy business people to focus on revenue-producing activities—thus reducing the level of pain endured to achieve a higher degree of success.

“iPEO Solutions tailors PEO solutions producing the greatest value for its clients,” says the company’s founder and CEO. “Outsourcing to a Professional Employer Organization allows companies to leverage a PEO’s world-class technology and personnel.”

Industries in which iPEO Solutions specializes include: Private Equity portfolio firms, Associations, Franchises, Real Estate/Property Management, Healthcare (Senior Housing), Construction, Hospitality and Transportation.

“In addition, we oversee the customized onboarding and enrollment services to make the transition to a PEO a success,” Ortoll said.

Here are the key questions executives should ask themselves when considering a PEO:

 “Will I have to give up control over my company or employees?”

 “What will my employees think of this arrangement?”

 “Who is the employer in this arrangement?”

  “How often does the PEO process payroll?”

  “How are a PEO's payroll capabilities superior to utilizing a payroll processing service?”

  “Why would I want to engage a PEO if I already have someone handling payroll and benefits?”

 “Will I have to stop and deal with health insurance and benefit questions?”

  “What happens if I have an employment issue or concern?”
