On the search, there are several PEO Service Providers In India – some great, some not so great. Some offer few services and some specialise in efficiency and have solutions that go a long way to form a strong plinth for successful business. If you think your business needs a PEO, we recommend that you do your thorough homework. The first step in your research process should be to establish your needs so you know exactly what features and services you want before you start talking to different companies. 

Mentioned below are 10 broad pointers that one should keep in mind while narrowing the search for a PEO partner: 

1. Industry-accredited PEO

The accreditation (of the PEO), is an added advantage and will ease the overall process of setting up the entity in addition to the business and industry understanding. 

2. Services considering business growth

As your business grows, will the PEO service be able to cater to the growing business requirements, and does it have the capability to add the services upon growth. The PEO should be a partner in progress. The PEO should be a catalyst and natural progressive partner in the business growth.

3. Exit Clause

What is the contract structure and the termination Or the cancellation policy. The entry and exit policies of the PEO partnership should be mutually flexible for both parties. 

4. Trained & Seasoned team

The PEO must have a trained team that is well versed with the state and local labour laws and relevant compliances. It will be best if the PEO partner has your industry specific knowledge and understanding. 

5. Solutions, Control and Accessibility

It is important to know what kind of user access does the PEO offer, like is there an online payroll portal or mobile app? Transparency and Control of operations should be easy and accessible to both parties for smooth and seamless operations leading to successful business establishment.

6. Commercials

The cost structure is also one of the main factors to sign up for the PEO service provider. Whether the charging model is – on the basis of number of employees Or a percentage of total payrolls. The commercials should be suiting your budgetary requirements keeping in view the prevailing business conditions.  

7. Customization of services

All business establishment requirements are not the same. They change as per the business objectives; also it may differ from company to company and industry. Can the PEO tailor its services to fit your business’s needs? The ability to create bespoke solutions is utmost important as each and every business / industry requirement is different. The flexible yet compliance ready approach is a must for a PEO partner.

8. Service after business hours

Customer service is of utmost importance for the PEO. It is important to know if the top management can have personal access to the lead team of skilled professionals. Also, if there is an IT support line in case you have technical problems after hours. The accessibility, especially after the usual business hours availability, considering the usual business time and varied time zones is extremely important. The team’s availability – physical Or virtual, for seamless operations is must.  

9. Communication channels

What support channels does it offer? Some companies offer live chat in addition to email and phone support. Which communication method would your business prefer?

The mode and model of interaction – professional and global approach is also important for a PEO partner.

10. Business Referrals

Last but not the least, industry referrals are the best testimonial to partners. The PEO must have appropriate referrals. If the PEO service provider has positive referrals then it is the biggest strength and most valuable credential. Combing through online reviews and talking with other business owners can help you understand if the PEO practices what its sales team preaches.
