What is a PEO?

Momentum Employer Group is a PEO, which stands for Professional Employer Organization. We are a team of experienced professionals that provides our clients with a variety of human resources (HR) tools and solutions, such as recruiting, hiring, onboarding, benefits, payroll, employee relations, regulatory filings, terminations and performance management.


As a PEO, Momentum Employer Group becomes your HR partner. We take care of the administrative transactions such as payroll, onboarding, benefit enrollment, etc.

When partnering with Momentum Employer Group, together we co-employ your employees. This enables us to provide you with maximum value and risk mitigation. Momentum becomes the “Employer of Record” for your employees, while you remain the worksite employer. In other words, your employees still work for your company – you direct their work, determine their wages,

create your company culture, etc. Then, as the “Employer of Record,” Momentum relieves you of the legal liability and fiduciary responsibility associated with payroll taxes and benefits. We become your outsourced HR partner. It’s a win-win solution for both you and your employees.

As your outsourced human resources department, we help to improve your business by enabling you to more effectively and continuously manage the performance of your greatest asset – your people.

At Momentum, we focus on value-added analytics and cutting edge HR practices to help your business grow, improve and reach its maximum potential.

Benefits of using a PEO

There are many advantages to small business that work with a PEO. Some of these key benefits include:

7 to 9 percent faster growth

Since December 2004, employment at small businesses using PEOs has grown over 7 percent faster than at other small businesses (according to the Intuit Small Business Employment Index).

10 to 14 percent lower employee turnover

The average overall employee turnover rate in the United States is approximately 42 percent per year, based on 2012 data. However, that number drastically reduces to just 28 to 32 percent for companies that used PEOs for at least four quarters.

50 percent less likely to go out of business

Businesses that use PEOs are approximately 50 percent less likely to fail (permanently go “out of business”) from one year to the next when compared to similar companies in the population as a whole. The overall business failure rate among private businesses in the United States as a whole is approximately 8 percent per year, based on 2012 data. However, it is only approximately 4 percent per year for those companies that used PEOs for at least four quarters.
