professional employer organization (PEO) is a firm that offers a service under which an employer can outsource employee management tasks such as

  • Employee benefits
  • Payroll and workers' compensation
  • Recruiting

It does all these by hiring employees for a client company, thus becoming their employer on record for tax purposes and insurance purposes.

To put it simply, PEO is an association through which a company selects a provider to become the dedicated HR management and benefits administration partner and deliver a broad range of HR services through a “co-employment” or employee leasing model.
