What is a PEO?

A Single Partner That Takes Care of Your Human Resources Needs.

A PEO, otherwise known as a Professional Employer Organization, is a one-stop-shop for payroll, employee benefits, and HR.

A PEO provides comprehensive HR solutions for businesses.

If you are a business, you likely already outsource your payroll and benefits, so working with a PEO just means that you will work with a single company for these services, rather than many. There are several unique advantages working with a PEO provides, including access to big-company buying power and resources, shared liability, and proactive risk management.

Why Use a PEO?

Instant HR Support

A PEO can provide you with instant HR support without the added costs of hiring a full-time team.

Big-Company Buying Power

Optimum pools together thousands of employees, providing health benefits at the same low rates usually only afforded to larger companies with many more employees.

Big-Company Resources

Optimum replicates the specialized HR department found at a large organization for only a fraction of the cost. Our resources are your resources.

Shared Liability

Staying compliant as a business can be a full-time job in itself. Optimum shares some of the responsibility your company has in this area through a co-employment relationship.

Proactive Risk Management

Optimum has visibility into many crucial areas of your business when we process your payroll. This helps you remain compliant and reduces the risk of fines, penalties, and lawsuits.

What Optimum Clients are Saying

Optimum tailored its services to my organization. Now, instead of researching human resources regulations and dealing with the stress of personnel issues, an area where I have no training or expertise, I can spend my time managing the operations of my business.

Owner of a financial services company

Working with Optimum has been a pleasure. From the moment we signed on, it has been nothing but smooth, transparent, and pleasant. The team I work with is always available, and I know that whatever it is that we might need, they are “on it.” I appreciate the accessibility of Optimum’s staff, and the feeling that my company is partnering with Optimum. We’re not just a client on the list, we’re partners. Most of all, I know that our employees are 100% taken care of, and that is the most invaluable part by far.

We have been extremely satisfied with the customized package of solutions Optimum provides our company. However, it is the personalized service and responsiveness that has been most outstanding. Whether it’s addressing a business challenge with senior management, or describing a benefit to an employee, Optimum has demonstrated the same remarkable level of professionalism and responsiveness.

The support we receive from Optimum’s HR specialists is invaluable. Their knowledge and experience gives us peace of mind when making a critical company decision. Across departments, Optimum representatives consistently exhibit professionalism and responsiveness.

CEO at a management company

Working with Optimum has allowed us to revisit previous policies in place to ensure we are current and contemporary with our guidelines. They have also provided excellent consultation services for a variety of HR and benefits-related items. Thanks Optimum!
