Professional Employer Organizations and What do You Need to Know About Them?

BACKGOUND –
The above title is a legitimate question. And it gets asked frequently. Often the answers given
are not always fact based, resulting in a variety of ‘inputs’ that are not helpful.
The purpose of this article is:

  • to share information about PEOs in order to dispel opinions that are not fact based
  • to provide information that enables businesses to make a sound decision when considering partnering with a PEO

All businesses are identical in that they exist to provide attractive services and/or products to a
base of clients or customers. In other words, that is the company’s raison d’etre – its reason for
being.

This is true whether the company is a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a LLC, a S Corporation
or a C corporation. The only reason it exists is because of the service/product, client/customer
linkage. If that linkage cannot be established, there is no company.

Companies range in size from the smallest of sole proprietorships who singularly sell a product
or service to a few customers, to the largest that employ a great number of employees, and that
service a worldwide customer base. The largest being Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart has more than 2
million employees working in 11,501 stores worldwide, while generating $520 billion in annual
revenue.

SIZE DOESN’T MATTER –

What many business owners fail to understand is whether the company is one with two
employees selling one product online to a few customers or is Wal-Mart, they share many of the
same overhead requirements.

The only difference between those two companies from a reporting perspective is the amount,
complexity, and number/location of overhead reporting requirements.

A two employee company sells its products only within the city the employees live in. Its
overhead requirements are minimal, relatively speaking.

By contrast, Wal-Mart has overhead reporting obligations by its stores in 27 countries and with
its eCommerce websites in 10 countries. 700,000 of its employees live in the 26 non US
countries. It’s almost impossible to comprehend the complexity of the regulatory and overhead
issues Wal-Mart has to deal with.

In addition to those two size extremes, according to the SBA Office of Advocacy, there are 27.9
million small businesses in the US. Only 18,500 of those businesses have 500 or more
employees. What remains is a large number of US businesses that have local, state and federal
reporting requirements. The problem is, many of those companies are ill equipped from both a
head count and skill set perspective to deal effectively with those reporting requirements.
Unfortunately, small size does not provide a release from a company’s reporting obligations.

REPORTING ISSUES AND OPPORTUNITY COST –

Most small and medium sized companies don’t have an individual with the available time or the
skills required to effectively handle the various reporting functions the company is responsible
for. What happens is much of what needs to be reported never is, or filings are late, or filings
are inaccurate. Those outcomes are not beneficial to the company.

Further, the reporting function and its collateral activities rob the company of the time the
individual could be productive serving a real need, like customer service.

Remember the days when we were teenagers and washed cars, had paper routes, cut grass
and shoveled snow (well some of us shoveled snow!)? We did the work and got paid. If we did a
good job, we usually had the opportunity to get more work. We did the work, we didn’t spend
time filling out papers for regulatory agencies.

That’s what companies are born for. To do the work and service their clients/customers. In our
economy there are volumes of regulations at the local, state and federal levels. The regulations
are in play to level the playing field, to ferret out bad actors, and to capture information that is
necessary for the execution of certain programs.

Regulations and reporting requirements are here to stay, are essential, and are legally binding.

SO, WHAT DO WE DO? –

Fortunately, help is available!!

Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) also have a raison d’etre – to assist companies by
assuming broad responsibilities for, at a minimum, a company’s payroll and Human Resources
(HR) functions. Assuming those time and personnel draining functions allow companies to focus
more intently on the business of the business – innovating and servicing its clients/customers.

In many PEO/company relationships, the PEO will be liable for both the work to be done and the
legal liability for any wrongdoing.

A co-employment relationship is established when both parties sign a contract that defines the
responsibility of the company and the PEO. The company maintains complete ownership and
operating control of its business.

www.napeo.org, the National Association of PEOs, is a fabulous resource for companies that
are considering a PEO relationship, or who would like to gather more information about how the
process works. It describes the PEO process in detail, and also includes an Inc magazine study
that demonstrates the benefits a company receives when it partners with a PEO.

It’s very hard to find a legitimate downside to the PEO model for companies with 5 to several
hundred or more employees. The PEO has expertise in each of the functions it assumes
responsibilities for. Small to medium businesses simply can’t match that level of expertise.

A final note. For a company that wants to explore the PEO option, make sure those you choose
to evaluate are designated as CERTIFIED. Certification further lowers the company’s risk.

Sadly, Most Businesses Absolutely Waste This Vital Asset!

You Think This Is Hard to Believe? –
Swift, Inc. hires an experienced sales rep. Her starting salary is $80,000 +
benefits + leased company car + commission. Total cash cost to the
company for this hire is approximately $150,000+/year.

She is not given any training about Swift’s service offerings. Is not
introduced to the company’s marketing department, a resource that could
give her valuable information. Is not given any sales goals. She is of no
value to Swift.

“Wait a minute” you say. “No company would do that”!

Exactly! So why companies do the following is even more perplexing.

This is Harder to Believe! –

Most US companies are guilty of investing in an asset that under-performs,
generating little or no value.

As hard as it is to believe, that asset is the company’s website. Most
websites are poorly written and generate little to no return on investment.

How Did This Happen? –

There are numerous reasons for this. A few are noted below.

  • As websites became mainstream, there was a frenzy not to get left
    behind. The result, websites were built by individuals who were better
    at design than they were at developing written content.
  • There was a rush to throw printed content from brochures and sales
    sheets into websites. Those pages masqueraded as written content.
  • Top management was often not in tune with the value a website
    could generate. Or even the need for a website.
  • There was often internal confusion between the functions marketing
    and sales were to perform. This further diluted the contribution of the
    website.
  • Google emerged. And that changed everything. Google set the rules
    for how answers to searches would be ranked.

The result of the previous bulleted items means millions of websites in the
US were ineffective from the day they were built. And most still are today.

Customers pre website paid little attention to printed brochures and sales
sheets. They continued to react the same way when that printed content
was loaded to a website. Traditional writing styles fail to connect with the
person reading website content.

Attractive design and graphics are necessary for all websites. However, the
real value of each web page is generated from its written content. People
read words to become informed. They do not read artwork.

In the digital age, professional copywriters are trained to approach writing
content for websites from the reader’s point of view.

Copywriters accomplish this by being formally trained to:

  • Write in a conversational voice – meaning write the way we talk.
  • Write at a reading level of 8 th grade or lower.
  • Write as though talking to one person.
  • Have a deep understanding of SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
  • Have a deep understanding of UX (User Experience).
  • Use stories when appropriate – which is almost always.
  • Understand the difference between sales and content writing.
  • Understand the need to activate positive emotional responses.
  • Understand the value of persuasion vs. telling.
  • Understand the reader is looking for a specific solution.
  • Understand the reader wants to know ‘what’s in it for me’.

Leadership’s continued lack of interest in, or their inability to understand
and support the true function of a website continues to be detrimental to the
successful utilization of that asset.

Confusion and lack of effectiveness occurs when sales and marketing are
lumped together as one function. This creates obstacles for a website to
function as it should – and that is an asset that creates value.

Marketing creates written content that builds relationships and nurtures
people through their buying journey. Sales wants written content that
enables an increase in revenue. The former enables the latter.

The Cure, a Media Platform –

Following are the steps needed to cure the inadequacies of websites that
are under-performing in most companies.

  1. Leadership must recognize a website is an asset that requires a
    return on investment. Once that occurs, the website will become a
    key part of the company’s operating strategy.
  2. Separate marketing and sales – even if the company has only one
    person in marketing and one person in sales. The result of that
    separation will be far better for the company than having two people
    in sales. In 2020, sales are easier to generate if a digital based
    marketing function supports the sales effort.
  3. Follow Jay Moye’s advice. Jay is the Worldwide Editor-In-Chief of
    Coca Cola Journey, the company’s award winning digital magazine.
    Jay suggests that companies rename their website a “media
    platform”. That seemingly simple name change will begin to generate
    the actions that turns the website into a multimedia asset.
  4. Engage a trained copywriter to develop the written content for all
    aspects of the media platform. This individual will have expertise in
    SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and UX (User Experience).
  5. The copywriter will retain and manage a designer who provides
    design and graphics that supports the copywriter’s written content.
  6. Come to peace with the fact that Google sets the rules for ranking the response to searches. 92+% of searches come through Google via voice and various forms of text. The good news – Google’s search rules are the same for all websites, so the playing field is level for all!

Where Should I Meet for Business?

We’ve all done it. Conducted “business” meetings at Wi-Fi hotspots like Panera, Dunkin, Starbucks, Bruegger’s, and similar locations for years.

Initially this was exciting as entrepreneurs charted a new way of doing business.

This new meet up option offered the possibility to meet at the expense of the establishment. We
could meet for long hours rent free and further, not be required to purchase any of the
establishment’s food or beverages. What started out as a trend with a few pioneers became the
norm for the many over time.

The Problem –

While this method of meeting for business has some attractive features, quite a list of
drawbacks quietly emerged over time.
To list a few:

  • Often business is being conducted in a crowded environment, without a desirable level
    of privacy.
  • Business discussions can and do evolve into social discussions, as there is often no
    compelling reason to end the get together.
  • If four or more people are physically at the meeting, available seating can become an
    issue.
  • Seats can result in ergonomic and/or comfort issues.
  • Some attendees pay more attention to what’s being said in the meeting next to theirs.
  • Documents you open on your mobile device, tablet or laptop might not be as secure as
    you would like them to be.
  • Wi-Fi may not be fast enough or consistent enough for your liking. Nothing like slower
    than slow uploads to cause people to drift away mentally.
  • Then there’s the baby in his carrier who was placed on the floor between you and his
    mother. She fed him before they left home, and she was sure he would sleep through
    her coffee social. He didn’t. You can’t hear your prospect’s reply to your last question
    because of his crying. Of course, Mom is used to it. She doesn’t move him.
  • The music being played, or the channel on the TV screen (e.g., ESPN) your prospect is
    focused on are not conducive to the concentration a business meeting requires.
  • You’re meeting at a shop that’s next to a high school or middle school. School let out 10
    minutes ago. Your business meeting is mobbed with teenagers talking and laughing as
    they order drinks and a snack. Don’t get mad at them because neither you nor your
    prospect can’t concentrate. The reality is, you’re in their ‘space’, and they’re only doing
    what teenagers do – goof off and have fun after a long day of classes.

Bottom line, there are a lot of factors, such as the ones noted above, at these meet up locations that are out of your control. If you’re scheduling an initial meeting or one that has significant importance to your business, you may want to consider alternative choices.

Consider the article by Andrea Beattie of HuffPost in which she summarized ‘The Secret Study of Business Killers’ that was conducted by market research firm Roy Morgan. In that study, several metrics were measured. Two that are relevant to this topic are the following. 65% indicated it was important for the company to have a local business address and 52% rated a local landline as important.

The Solution –

So how do you accommodate the above thinking for 7 out of 7 people you meet with, as
opposed to 4 out of 7?

Consider the benefits of a virtual office:

  • Professional business address and phone number.
  • All business mail is delivered to the virtual office location.
  • Phone calls are answered by a live receptionist.
  • Mail is delivered to the virtual office’s physical location.
  • Access to professional meeting rooms and state of the art training rooms.
  • Save travel time and expense. Only meet there as required.
  • Secure, high speed internet.
  • Reduced business overhead.
  • No printer, fax machine or copy machine needed.
  • No operating/utility costs.
  • No property taxes.
  • No personnel issues to deal with. To the contrary, a willing staff addresses your every
    concern.
  • No distractions like those experienced in informal meeting locations.

A Potential Virtual Office Facility for You to Consider –

and tasteful and a great place to meet with clients.  Shannon and Suzanne are true
professionals in greeting my clients.  As a virtual tenant, my tax practice runs much smoother
with their help and facilities.
Jeffrey Miller – Jeff Miller Tax

The decision to use digital and cloud-based tools to convert the company to a remote worker
model was easy, but we still needed to convey a physical presence. That's where Executive
Office Suites came to the rescue. They made it easy to manage our phone calls with friendly
call screening and VoIP routing options, as well as secure handling of our mail and packages.
But the best part about having Executive Office Suites as a business partner is the way the staff
makes our clients, guests and team members feel welcome when we are onsite. Over the
years, Executive Office Suites has become an essential part of how we work; and it continues to
be a great partnership.

8 Local Experts Share Why They Picked an Office Suite Style Environment to Grow Their Business

An executive suite setting is an all-inclusive office space that provides everything your business needs without any of the hassles, from fully furnished spaces to coffee and meeting rooms.

Many people have started out in their living rooms or at the kitchen table, but with time, their businesses grew and they needed a proper setup while others have more space than their business can accommodate. That’s when an executive office suite environment is perfect for the business. So whether you are looking to have a dedicated office or looking to reduce the costs of your office operations, an all-exclusive office environment would be a perfect fit. They allow the clients to share the overhead costs, which are associated with the upkeep of the offices with the other occupants who use the same office space.

Here are 8 small business experts weighing in on why they chose to use an executive office suite environment for their business instead of a traditional commercial space:

Denise Zirker (Broker) rare Properties

We chose an office suite environment because we were a small business at the time. The phone support and professional environment were important for setting the image that we wished to convey to our clients.”

rare Properties is a full-service boutique Real Estate Brokerage specializing in the marketing of residential properties in the Triangle Area. For more information please visit rareproperties.biz or call 919-576-0345.

Jim Quinn (Executive Vice President) LSQ Funding

“I chose an office suite environment because of the location. It’s near my house and provides everything I need such as amazing and talented office staff.”

LSQ Funding provides specialized accounts receivable financing to growing companies. They offer competitive rates, customized financing arrangements and personal service to help improve your profitability and financial security. For more information please visit lsq.com.

Jay Alderson (Property and Casualty Specialist) MetLife Auto and Home

“The reason why I decided to open my Insurance Agency in an office suite style environment was because of the location and the cost.  Having a suite saved me a ton of money out of pocket by having all of your services included at a low monthly cost and I did not have the upfront expense of purchasing office furniture and equipment or hiring staff.  Having a Suite has allowed me to spend more money on marketing, which has allowed me to grow my Insurance Agency by leaps and bounds!”

MetLife, Inc. is a leading global provider of insurance, annuities and employee benefit programs. For more information please visit jalderson.metlife.com or call 919-714-7282.

C.J. Meese, Business Development Associates Inc.

“The value of an executive office suite environment is you only need to invest in the amount of space and the number of services you need to grow your business.  Additionally, first rate executive suites offer attractive conference rooms so you can look truly professional when meeting with clients at your office.”

BDA works with owners, senior executives and Board members of companies who have made a deep and lasting commitment to enhance their company’s performance (and therefore, shareholder value), and who understand the value of engaging an experienced and objective outside advisor who can facilitate the achievement of their desired objectives.

So if your company is ready to prepare a strategic business plan, obtain capital to enable growth, transfer ownership via a partial or complete sale of the business, make an acquisition, undertake a valuation — or if you need interim C level management — we would like to talk with you about how BDA can assist you with those issues.

For more information please visit bdainc.biz or call 919.714.7289

David Crump, Employee Benefits Consulting Co.

“We chose an office suite environment initially for location when it first opened.  We have stayed because of the professional atmosphere and the level of competency and customer service that has been afforded to us.  We have found that the staff of the office suite has gone out of its way more than a few times to accommodate our needs as they have come up.  It was important to our business to have a staff that was professional, courteous and helpful.  An office suite environment is a great place do business.”

Employee Benefits Consulting Company provides superior consulting services from Group Benefits Plans for businesses, Solutions for small businesses to Individual Services such as Health, Life and Dental Insurance. For more information please visit ebcc.us or call 919-714-7424

Lauren Massie, Lauren Massie, CPA, EA, MBA

“I love the office suite environment to extend my presence and availability to clients to meet their needs”.

Lauren Massie, CPA, PLLC provide clients with solutions to resolve their tax debts with the IRS and the North Carolina Department of Revenue.  She regularly assists clients with issues such as tax liens, unfiled tax returns, back taxes, wage garnishments, bank levies, installment agreements, and the filing of an Offer in Compromise to settle tax debts. For more information, please visit www.laurenmassie.com or call her at 919-792-8511.

Philip Massey (President) Massey Consulting

“We are a professional services consulting organization, so most of our time interacting with clients is either at their site or done via GoToMeeting or something similar.  An office suite environment enables us to have a business address and location, but not have the overhead of a traditional commercial space.”

Accounting software is the specialty of Massey Consulting. We are certified, recognized experts in each of the software solutions we offer. For more information, please visit masseyconsulting.net.

Sharon Adair (Director of Member Services) Alliance for Toll Interoperability

“The driving point for the Alliance for Toll Interoperability (ATI) as a small non-profit was the need for a professional environment in which to have meetings. The flexibility of hours, room sizes and types along the adjusted cost was ideal since we only require use of the space a few times in a year. Prior to discovering the option of an office suite, we were challenged by needing a physical address, meeting space and limited financial resources. An office suite is also beneficial as we do not have to worry over the security & maintenance of an unused or primarily vacant site. All of the small companies that we have brought to the office space in the past 2 years have gone home looking for a similar solution in their area. With the capabilities of modern technology and the increase of employees working from home or from the road, many small businesses are looking for either a physical office or virtual office option as a better fit for office needs & expenses.”

Alliance for Toll Interoperability promotes and implements interstate interoperability for the benefit of customers and member agencies. For more information, please visit tollinterop.org or call 919-441-6542.

A Virtual Office Can Add A Professional Image for Your Business!

During the initial stages of building your business, I am sure you have heard about the importance of setting up a commercial office location. A physical location that is zoned for business speaks volumes for your company and it’s operations.

If you decide to use your home address for your company, keep in mind some lenders may not extend credit to a “home-based” business. But if you are adamant about having a commercial address but cannot afford renting out traditional office space and hiring someone to manage your calls, mail, files etc., then having a Virtual Office is what you need.

board-room2

Here at Executive Office Suites, we offer various Virtual Office packages to help support you and your business and provide the professional image that you are searching for. Not only do you get a permanent mailing address and business phone number, but you get 24 hour access to our services which includes 3 meeting rooms and flex office space and a virtual admin (who you do not have to pay) who will answer your calls and help with your mail.

Give your business the professional image you require to get ahead of the competition. Call today for more information or stop by to tour our facilities!
