PEO Survey Top 3 SMB Challenges  

For most SMB the two most important goals are revenue growth and cost controls.

In a competitive employee benefits market, both objectives are easier said than done. However, partnering with a PEO  can help make these key goals easier to achieve.

Recently, PrismHR’s 2018 Human Resource Outsourcing (HRO) Trends Report took a closer look at PEOs, ASOs, and other HR service providers.


The report found the top 3 challenges for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are:

  1. Staying compliant with local, state, and federal employment regulations
  2. Managing the cost of employee benefits
  3. Managing payroll

Additionally, the survey also explored the top reasons why SMBs decide to choose a PEO or HR service provider:

  1. Cost Saving
  2. Elimination of HR tasks
  3. Better benefits

Another finding from the report shows that SMB are not educated on the value of PEOs and how they can help. The survey sought to find just how familiar SMB are with the PEO model

  • Never heard of it – 16%
  • Have heard the name but don’t know what it is – 33%
  • Have a vague understanding of what it is and how it works – 43%
  • Are familiar with the PEO model – 8%

SMB gain a  Fortune-500 quality benefits, help them eliminate HR tasks that consume large amounts of time and resources, and save costs associated with HR should explore a PEO solution.
