Payroll, benefits, worker’s compensation and several other responsibilities are handled efficiently and professionally. Employers reduce their administrative burden so they can focus on growing their business, frequently reducing the cost of benefits and worker’s compensation insurance. But what about the administrative burden of the PEO? Can your background screening process be improved?
As a co-employer, shared responsibility includes shared risk. Negligent hiring and potential liability claims are a threat to the bottom line of both the employer and PEO. Because the PEO often manages recruitment and hiring, many rely on a comprehensive background screening program to make solid placement recommendations based on reliable information.
