A few frequently asked questions – and answers – for those interested in learning more about PEOs.

The best PEO services provider for small businesses stands out through a blend of certifications, awards and expertise that indicates a commitment to excellence and compliance. Top PEOs, including Axcet, exemplify this distinction by holding several key credentials:

  • IRS Certification: Holding the coveted status as an IRS-certified PEO ensures adherence to stringent financial, reporting and transparency standards, offering peace of mind regarding payroll taxes and compliance.
  • Award Recognition: Having been honored with numerous awards, including the Best of HR Services and Best Places to Work, reflects a commitment to quality service and a supportive environment that benefits client companies.
  • Professional Certifications: Individual PEO team members with certifications including SHRM and HRCI, Certified Payroll Professionals (CPP) and certified risk managers ensure your business needs are managed with the utmost professionalism and up-to-date knowledge.
  • OSHA STAR Worksite: Partnering with a PEO services provider that has achieved the OSHA STAR worksite status showcases a collective commitment to maintaining the highest standards of workplace safety. This achievement is significant for many small businesses that value safety as a paramount concern.

PEO stands for Professional Employer Organization.

A PEO provides employment management tasks including employee benefits, payroll administration, workers’ compensation, human resources, and risk and safety management, and human resources compliance guidance.

A PEO, or a professional employer organization, allows companies to outsource key human resource functions like payroll, benefits, training, and guidance to assist small and mid-sized companies with maintaining compliance with federal and state labor and employment laws.  Working with a PEO can help business owners and their management teams focus on the business.

A PEO's economy of scale enables each client company to lower employment costs and increase the business's bottom line. The client can maintain a simple in-house HR infrastructure or none at all by relying on the PEO. The client also can reduce hiring overhead. The professionals at the PEO can provide critical assistance with employer compliance, which helps protect the client against liability. The PEO client can access significant technology and service infrastructure provided by the PEO. In addition, the PEO provides time savings by handling routine and redundant tasks for its clients. This enables the business owner to focus on the company's core competency and grow its bottom line.

PEOs are generally the best fit for small- to mid-sized businesses that have fewer than 250 employees.

Schedule a Conversation to See If It Fits

While some PEOs may require you to subscribe to a full suite of services, including employee benefits and workers' compensation, Axcet does not impose such restrictions.

The only service commonly required across all PEOs, including Axcet, is payroll processing. This flexibility ensures that you can tailor our services to complement your existing business operations effectively.

Axcet works with clients who have a presence in 46 states within the United States. So multi-state and long-distance support are never a problem.

That said, we find that we work best with businesses that are headquartered within 250 miles of Kansas City because we're better positioned to provide that hands-on access that our clients come to really appreciate.

We are small, and as such, rarely in the eye of a payroll services company. Axcet works with our multiple entities. I want to focus on our business, and they focus on HR for me. Because we are small, I really don't want to have a 'personal' disagreement about PTO or vacation pay, so I set the guidelines, and Axcet manages them, which I love.

We really appreciate the work you are doing for our tradeshow and exhibit display company. The fun part is we get at least an email a day, phone calls every day, and we see the commercials on tv for something that you have taken care of for us last year. (And, of course, it is in the capable IRS hands now.)

Thanks for making this so easy for us.

Turning our admin, payroll, benefits, 401K, workers' compensation, etc., over to Axcet HR has been one of the best decisions that we've ever made: that was back in 2001! We've had 21 great years with Axcet and hope to have 21 more! Axcet has saved us time and LOTS of money but most of all, Axcet HR has allowed us to focus on running our business...because we know, day in, and day out that Axcet has our back!

We've gained business momentum as a result of Axcet's team of dedicated professionals.

Axcet has helped us find affordable benefits for our 15 employees. Being a small firm, it was hard to find various health insurance options. It is nice knowing that we have someone with HR knowledge. It is good to get another persons opinion when we are having employee issues.

I burned through a couple of "payroll companies" before I found Axcet. I have yet to encounter anyone at this company that hasn't been friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. Calls are returned amazingly fast and problems are solved without having to make any other calls. This is truly a great company and stellar business partner!

With all the changing rules and regulations we face as employers, I was always afraid of a "Gotcha!" moment. We've been with Axcet over 10 years now and I sleep well at night knowing all our HR is done right. They make it all so easy. Our payroll is accurate, we are legal and OSHA compliant in every area, and my employees love their benefits. Our team at Axcet is more than just a good vendor, they are a great partner!

We had tried two other PEOs. Both of which we left after the first year. The level of service that we were accustomed to with Axcet was not there, so we came back to Axcet truly because of the excellent service we always received. Everyone at Axcet would make us feel like we were their only client, like they were sitting there waiting for our call, always friendly and ready to help.

We started working with Axcet in 2018 and they have dramatically increased our internal productivity. We used to spend hours on payroll, HR, benefits, taxes, etc. each week and that is no longer the case. Prior to Axcet, we worked with two other payroll companies and is was a complete mess. Working with Axcet is like having a robust and efficient internal HR department. They have solutions to every problem and we no longer feel lost trying to navigate the payroll landscape. If you want to streamline your business and get out of the HR and payroll weeds, then go with Axcet.

Thank you Axcet HR for your assistance with the employee issue. You justified every penny we pay to Axcet through this exercise. I am really glad we have you and Axcet as a resource. It gave me peace of mind, knowing that you would know how to handle these situations the correct way. I really appreciate all the effort put into this to help me stay on course and protect our company.
