We welcome you to review the following white papers published by the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO), which have been carefully researched and crafted by industry leadership.


The ROI of Using a PEO

The areas where PEOs can deliver significant value to their clients can be divided into three broad categories:

• Improving clients’ ability to attract, motivate, and retain employees;
• Enabling clients to focus on their core businesses while PEOs handle all HR matters; and
• Lowering HR-related expenditures.


How PEO Clients Fared in the First Months of the COVID-19 Pandemic: A Comparative Analysis

The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented economic challenges for almost all employers, with small businesses hit especially hard. This white paper examines the available evidence on the early impact that PEOs had on business outcomes for their clients. Compared to non-PEO clients, businesses that use a PEO are:

・119% more likely to have received a PPP loan
・72% more likely to have received a PPP loan during round 1
・91% less likely to still be temporarily closed
・60% less likely to have permanently closed


PEO’s: Fueling Small Business Growth

The ability for a company to survive and profit increasingly hinges on the degree to which it can manage its employees more effectively than its competitors can manage theirs. With their extensive array of HR services and employee benefits, PEO’s are uniquely positioned and have significant potential to help businesses better meet their challenges in the face of today’s demanding economic conditions. This study explores the evidence to determine how PEO clients are faring relative to other companies in the economy.


PEOs: Keeping Turnover Low and Survival High

Businesses that use PEOs are approximately 50% less likely to fail from one year to the next when compared to similar companies in the population as a whole.
