Market Dynamics

The United States Professional Employer Organization (PEO) Market Drivers

Rapid Growth in Small and Medium-Sized Businesses

The market for professional employer organizations (PEO) is anticipated to grow swiftly due to the constant development and expansion of small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs). According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, "Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) account for more than 95% of firms and 60%–70% of employment in OECD economies, and generate a significant proportion of new jobs."

The United States 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.
