Market Dynamics

North America Professional Employer Organization (PEO) Market Drivers

Increasing Problems Concerning Employee Turnover

The need for businesses to comply with labor laws, which has increased over the past few years, is the primary factor influencing the expansion of the PEO market. Numerous significant organizations have a high employee turnover rate, resulting in additional expenses—for instance, training new employees.

A professional employer organization (PEO) is a business that offers a variety of services to its clients, including payroll and employee benefits. Employers who purchase these services from a PEO can reduce the cost of administering their employees' benefits while granting employees greater control over their benefits, resulting in increased employee retention and lower turnover rates.

North America Professional Employer Organization (PEO) Market Restraints

Lost Command of Important Processes

As organizations transition to a more flexible staffing model, they lose control of relevant processes, such as payroll administration, tax processing, and human resource management. In addition, they become more reliant on vendors for these essential business functions, which causes significant delays in time-sensitive operations (like payroll). Control is one of the critical aspects of decision-making, and this is particularly true in the relationship between an employer and an employee. When a business utilizes a professional employer organization, it relinquishes total control over its workforce in exchange for a service it values.
