Full-Service HR Management

so you can focus on running your business.

A PEO (Professional Employer Organization) is an entity that assists in your company’s payroll, benefits, and other HR items by working alongside you as a co-employer. The PEO’s job is to take care of the back-end office stuff that can bog down smaller businesses — things like recruiting payroll, benefits, accounting, and other HR activities.

To put it simply: A PEO legally joins you as your workers’ employer, which is why a PEO is sometimes referred to as a co-employer.

Because you’re outsourcing certain aspects of your back-end business functions, utilizing a PEO mitigates your health insurance and benefits costs. This allows you to focus on the important stuff — like running your business — without having to worry so much about the minutiae of accounting, HR, payroll, and benefits.

Think of our services as an a la carte menu: You tell us the specific services you need, and we provide them!


Good employees are hard to find — but finding them is Teamworx’s specialty. We have a database of potential candidates waiting to be placed with companies like yours. From there we’ll handle everything, but all hiring and firing decisions remain in your hands. 


Imagine if you didn’t have to manage your employees’ payroll. How much else would you have time and money for? As your partner and co-employer, Teamworx is able to handle all of your payroll responsibilities so that you can spend more time growing your business.

How Does it Work?

When you decide to work with a PEO, you enter into what’s called a “co-employment model.” What this means is that, while you retain full control over your employees’ day-to-day work, their management, and your organizational structure (including all hiring and firing decisions), the PEO takes on the burden of HR, payroll, benefits, workers comp, compliance, and more.

With a PEO in your corner, you can spend more time focused on the day-to-day aspects of running your business. This bypasses the need to hire internal staff to do the back-end things that keep your business afloat.

What’s in it for You?

Engaging with a PEO can reduce your liability on all fronts as you tap into your co-employer’s benefits network, insurance, workers comp, and HR resources. There’s no better way to make sure all the technical stuff’s taken care of, while still having time to run your business.

Recruiting, taxes, paperwork, insurance, compliance, drug testing, payroll, and employee benefits are all things that fall under Teamworx’s umbrella of services.
