Everybody that has ever worked in HR knows that using a PEO company has some very serious advantages. But not many may know some of the more obscure advantages that this has. For instance, one such advantage is drug testing programs. Many companies will periodically test their employees for drug use. In order to do so they usually have to dedicate a lot of resources to it and basically lose a couple of days until everything is sorted. But by using a POE partner the responsibility of handling such a task is passed down to them. Now they have to handle all the testing and you can focus on other important aspects of your business.
Also, using a PEO company can really come in handy when dealing with family and medical leaves. Although many companies have these perks for their employees, it really is a grey area. So sometimes the employee and the employer don’t see eye to eye on the matter. Instead of having to deal with such problems, your company can simply hand it over to the POE partner. This way they will be the ones handling any issues that employees might have and you will just have to focus on keeping your employees happy.
