Professional Employer Organization (PEO) Services

Imagine the possibility of being freed from the day-to-day human resource tasks that consume your time, thought and energy. That's exactly what EMPO as a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) can do for your business, plus so much more. Our HR experts relieve you of the hassles, inefficiencies, complexities, risk and worries associated with human resource function, so you can focus on your mission, competitive position and bottom line. And that is just the great beginning of partnering with EMPO.

A PROFESSIONAL EMPLOYER ORGANIZATION (PEO) provides integrated services that cost effectively manage critical human resource responsibilities and employer risks for clients.

PEOs deliver these services by establishing and maintaining an employer relationship with workers hired by the client and by contractually assuming substantial employer responsibilities and risk.

Our human resource and business process services help you control costs, streamline processes, expedite your speed to market, increase quality and reduce workplace liabilities. We learn your business' goals, and then we make our recommendations. You determine the functions you wish to maintain, and our HR experts manage the rest.

EMPO Corporation Model
Having EMPO as my virtual “back-office staff” allows me to complete my HR responsibilities thoroughly and carefully. It’s great having EMPO HR professionals available for tasks I’m unfamiliar with, rusty at, or just plain don’t have time or a desire to do myself. I request assistance with certain tasks (Affirmative Action Plan, 401(k) issues, complex benefits questions and issues, Open Enrollment, COBRA, etc.) and EMPO does as much or as little as I ask. I delegate the responsibility and move on. It’s wonderful to just hand something over and know it is being completed accurately, promptly and within the most current compliance requirements. It’s like having an entire HR department helping me do my job better and faster. I can focus on the HR responsibilities that deliver the most ROI for Dakota and those requiring personal interaction.

In partnering with EMPO, we found a superb resource that helped us evaluate our operations and benefits. From there, EMPO developed innovative HR strategies to achieve our unique goals. We also gained access to leading programs through top-caliber companies like BeniComp, Marsh and Regal Investment Advisors that we weren’t able to offer independently. There’s a great satisfaction in being able to provide our team excellent benefits and programs while saving money and operating more efficiently.
