After the trend of the remote working model all over the globe, in UAE, the demand for HR outsourcing services has evidently risen up. Remote work requires close management and compliance of HR functions across multiple states and even countries. In this scenario partnering with a PEO or EOR company can be one of the wisest choices businesses may make. It is a conventional practice by companies to fully outsource these administrative HR tasks to a PEO payroll company but modern technology has also enabled many companies to automate PEOs in order to keep their crucial information in-house while benefiting from advisory services, saving time, and other services a PEO and EOR provide.
What is the Definition of PEO?
PEO is the acronym for Professional Employer Organization. As the name suggests, it is a third-party entity that undertakes few or all of the employment responsibilities for your company on your behalf.
PEO or Professional Employer Organization works in a co-employment relationship with a company, mostly small and medium-sized organizations, to provide payroll outsourcing services such as benefits, employee wages, and other administrative HR functions. A PEO generally takes care of payroll, employee benefits, and managing labor services in compliance with labor and employment laws.

What are the Benefits of PEO(Professional Employer Organization)?
Partnering with a PEO gives a great deal for saving money. From saving time and cost to having great peace of mind, there is so much that a PEO can benefit a company from. Here are some areas where a company can save money through the services of a PEO:
- HR Benefits
- Retirement Plans
- Employee Wages and Compensation
- Employment Compliances
- Hiring and Recruitment
- Peace of Mind
1. HR Benefits
When you are running a company, it should be your primary goal to keep your employees happy and content. In order to do so, you must have a plan to offer benefits to your employees leading them to stay loyal to your company. Benefits can be overwhelmingly expensive for your company’s cost which is why PEO can be a cost-effective option for you. As a co-employer, the PEO will be responsible for providing your staff with a wide range of benefits such as medical and dental coverage, healthcare insurance, and life and disability coverage.
Partnering with a PEO may greatly reduce your payroll processing and accounting costs. It is always best to choose a PEO that charges you an upfront simple fee rather than someone who charges separately for payroll services. A reputed PEO will provide you with the best deal of payroll outsourcing services so that you can focus on bigger decisions leading your company towards growth.
Keeping your employees happy is an easy and difficult task both at the same time. While a happy employee can give you a fortune, a disappointed one can cost you billions too. In UAE the employment laws are very strict and even a single lawsuit by an employee can devastate your reputation for good. A top-tier PEO can negotiate and support on your behalf in the case of such a scenario and may also assure that none of such unpleasant incidents takes place.
4. Retirement Plans
Following the employee benefits, a PEO will also be responsible for offering an attractive retirement plan for your employees. Besides the cost-saving, it will also help you to retain your best talent resources and keep their loyalty towards your company intact.
5. Employee Wages and Compensation
Providing employees their wages and compensation is one of the basic services most PEOs have to offer. It releases you from the hassle of managing staff’s payroll and salary disbursements procedures. PEOs automate the wages disbursement where you can also have the access to assure the wages are timely paid.
6. Employment Compliances
Starting up a business in a new country can be really overwhelming especially when it comes to understanding the laws and regulations of trade and employment in the country. Co-working with a PEO payroll company helps businesses in complying with the laws and employment legalities to prevent them from being charged for any kind of penalties and fines.
7. Hiring and Recruitment
A good PEO payroll company also offers companies to take charge of the entire recruitment process starting from shortlisting of candidates till getting them on board. This becomes a great advantage for businesses to save time and effort especially if the business is entering a new market.
8. Peace of Mind
The main idea to partner with a PEO is to outsource the administrative and other HR functions to an entity you can trust so that you are saved with the time and effort to invest in the strategic planning of your business. Co-employing with a PEO gives companies peace of mind and ample time to create long-term strategies for the welfare of their business.
