Market Overview

The North America professional employer organization (PEO) market share witnessed significant growth in the past and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.07% during the forecast period (2022-2030).

A professional employer organization (PEO), or human resource outsourcing, is a service provider specializing in providing small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) with cost-effective HR management solutions. By leasing employees, PEOs share responsibility and control over various employee-related tasks and liabilities with the employer. These organizations provide businesses with vital administrative and management services, including payroll processing, finance, and tax support, employee recruitment, personnel management, and risk mitigation.

In North America, adopting Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) by small and medium-sized businesses is one of the primary growth drivers. PEOs enable business proprietors to maximize their professional benefits by streamlining HR services for healthcare businesses or managing numerous aspects of human resources for other companies. Large and minor healthcare providers select PEO services as a cost-effective alternative to business-to-business services. The escalating demand for PEOs in the healthcare industry is anticipated to generate enormous opportunities in the North American market.

Market Dynamics

North America PEO Market Drivers

Escalating Challenges Related to Employee Attrition

The expansion of the North American PEO market is primarily driven by the growing demand from businesses to comply with increasingly stringent labor laws. In recent years, labor laws have become more stringent, posing challenges for large organizations regarding high employee turnover rates and the costs associated with training new hires.

Professional employer organizations (PEOs) provide a range of services to their clients, including payroll administration and employee benefits management. By utilizing the services of a PEO, employers can effectively reduce the costs related to managing employee benefits while empowering employees with increased control over their benefits. As a result, employee retention rates have improved, leading to lower turnover rates.

North America PEO Market Restraints

Surrendered Authority over Critical Processes

Adopting a flexible staffing model by businesses presents challenges in retaining control over vital processes such as payroll administration, tax processing, and human resource management. This often leads to increased dependence on external vendors to fulfill these critical functions, potentially causing delays in time-sensitive operations, specifically payroll processing. Control plays a crucial role in decision-making, particularly in the employer-employee relationship. When a company collaborates with a professional employer, it willingly surrenders complete control over its workforce in exchange for a valued service.

North America PEO Market Opportunities

The competitive landscape, technological advancements, and the integration of automation and robotics have created a growing demand for advanced and automated human resource management technology solutions.

A prominent trend observed in the PEO industry is the increasing need for technology systems that automate payroll administration.
