Blue Collar recommends only the best PEOs who uses top rated, national providers. Most PEOs earn no commissions on health packages; therefore they have no vested interest in buying a high-priced product. It is in the PEOs collective interest to get the best product at the best price, so that the total package price remains as low as possible.
As a bulk purchaser, PEOs can provide substantial savings up front and control your costs over the long term through effective claims management. Cash flow is improved as the deposit premium for workers’ compensation insurance is no longer required. This coverage is automatically calculated each pay period on the amount of gross payroll.
All you have to do is to pay the PEO each pay period to cover the payroll, taxes, benefits and our fee. This greatly simplifies your accounting.
In the same way you pay them now: weekly, BI-weekly, semi-monthly or monthly. PEOs will federal express deliver the payroll and invoice, and you distribute the paychecks to your employees. You simply pay the total amount on the invoice.
