American businesses are undergoing fundamental changes in human resource management, and the PEO industry is one response to Employer's demands. Businesses today need help in managing increasingly complex related matters such as personnel management, health benefits, risk management, safety awareness programs, workers' compensation claims, payroll and payroll tax compliance and unemployment insurance claims. Today, businesses contract with a PEO (Professional Employer Organization) to assume these responsibilities, which then allows the client to concentrate on the more important revenue-producing side of its operations.
As business continues to grow, many employers do not have the necessary human resource training, payroll and accounting skills, knowledge of employment regulatory compliance, or backgrounds in risk management, workers' compensation and/or employee benefits administration to meet the demands of being a single employer. Few, if any, small to medium sized businesses can afford full-time specialized staff Managers to handle these important responsibilities. By shifting some of these duties and responsibilities to dmDickason Staff Leasing Company, our clients can now dedicate more time to research and development, the production of their products and services, marketing, sales and the delivery of quality products and services.
A Professional Employer Organization (Staff Leasing) Company is an organization that provides an integrated and cost effective approach to the management and administration of the human resources and employer risks of its clients by contractually assuming substantial employer rights, responsibilities and risk, through the establishment and on-going maintenance of an employer relationship with the worksite employees.
Both the PEO and the client company establish employment relationships with worksite employees. Each co-employer has the right to direct and control worksite employees – the PEO directs and controls worksite employees in matters involving human resource management and compliance with employment laws, and the client company directs and controls worksite employees in manufacturing, production, the operation of the business and / or the delivery of its products and services.
PEOs are not only helping business entrepreneurs with managing their business, but also American workers by establishing and maintaining a healthy long-term relationship, and by providing affordable “big business” on-going support and benefits.
