Why a Professional Employer Organization (PEO)?
Our PEO services provide companies with a full-service, “turn-key” human resources solution that’s ready to roll. We manage the full employee life-cycle from hiring to termination, applying our expertise and reducing your administrative burden. Let us be the heavy! We minimize risk by reviewing labor law compliance, safety practices and Workers’ Compensation (WC) practices. In addition, you have access to our comprehensive benefits suite to help you attract and retain top employees. Most importantly, we partner with you and together, work on achieving your capital goals.
Human resources outsourcing does pay off. According to a recent NAPEO study, employment growth at PEO clients is more than 7% higher than at small businesses overall. In addition, PEO clients spend 21% less on HR administration per employee than non-PEO companies (according to Bersin by Deloitte, a leading HR research firm). By partnering with Allevity, our clients have more time and resources to focus on what they do best - growing their business.back to top
Partnering with Allevity is like hiring a limousine… we’ll get you there safely with air in the tires and gas in the tank while you sit back and give us the destination.
Established in 1974, Allevity is one of the founders of the Professional Employer Organization industry. We deliver large company solutions while building valued relationships with our clients. Our services include human resource guidance, advanced payroll services, labor law compliance, employee and benefit administration, time and attendance technology, mobile workforce solutions and much more.
Allevity has been Employer Services Assurance Corporation (ESAC) accredited since 2000. The ESAC verifies the ongoing financial solvency, government compliance and industry standards of PEOs. We are SSAE16 Type 2 certified. This assures you we are using best practices to ensure your information is safe and your payrolls are accurate. We also deploy best practices in network protection. Our network is configured to meet the standards set by HIPAA, FERPA, GLBA, PCI and SOX.back to top
We've designed a service solution built around the client. To ensure a quality experience, we maintain a staffing ratio of one HR staff member for every 300 client employees. Industry average is 600 to 1. In fact, in a recent double-blind survey of PEO clients, Allevity customers said they spend 4.5 hours less per week on HR related activities than clients of other PEOs. Our clients spend 3.1 hours per week compared to the clients of other PEO companies who indicated they spend 7.6 hours. Imagine the frustration of hiring an HR outsourcing company and still spending a day a week on HR activities.
When you call Allevity you always get a real person - not a phone tree. If by chance, the front desk doesn't answer your call within two rings, your call will ring to every extension in the company. An Allevity team member will take your call and ensure you reach the person or resource you need. Also, don't worry about memorizing a five digit extension number; you can ask for us by name.back to top
Time & Labor Management
As part of our service, you'll have access to best-in-class time and labor management. Our clients have been able to save a significant amount of time, streamline processes and reduce costs by maintaining employee timesheets electronically.
Our time and attendance solution:
- Saves supervisors time by reducing paperwork
- Saves time and improves accuracy by automatically calculating hours, overtime, shift differentials and job rates
- Saves time and provides insight with built-in job costing and labor distribution reports
- Automatically tracks time off balances and requests
- Reduces overtime costs by eliminating overtime rounding
- Helps eliminate buddy punching and timecard theft
Under our PEO service, Allevity shares the employment responsibility with your company. We manage the HR administration for your staff, while you maintain full control over directing, managing, hiring and compensating your team. In other words, you provide the leadership and direction; we’ll provide the transactional HR. Co-employment is what makes this possible. It allows us to offer your staff our full suite of benefits. It’s what makes a turn-key HR solution possible. Ready, set, go!back to top

The Affordable Care Act has created a mountain of uncertainty, confusion and risk related to providing health benefits. Companies are facing new challenges that, depending on their situation, may have dramatic financial impact. Allevity clients are comforted knowing we will help them manage these risks and provide solutions to keep them in compliance with the reform laws. We are closely monitoring developments and working with industry leaders and lawmakers with our clients' interests in mind to determine best practices and solutions as reform continues to evolve.back to top
Of all of the great services we provide, the rubber meets the road with your employees' paychecks. We realize paycheck accuracy affects employee morale. Allevity is proud of its 99.90% paycheck accuracy record. We are SSAE 16 certified and are constantly reviewing our processes to deliver the highest quality experience for you and your staff.back to top
The best compliment we can receive is when clients recommend us to their peers. When the solution works well, it's hard not to talk about it and people recommend solutions they trust. Last year, 53% of our new business came from client referrals. In fact, it's very possible you might have been referred to us by one of our clients. Because of this enthusiasm, the number of employees we manage has grown by 46% over the past year. We are eager to have your company benefit from the Allevity experience so that one day, you too might recommend us to your peers.back to top

We all expect a certain level of risk and challenges in our business. However, sometimes events occur that greatly exceed what one can anticipate. Whether it be a disaster, criminal activity, or personal tragedy, there have been occurrences over the years which have affected our clients and their employees. Thankfully, we've been there with guidance and resources to help make the darkest days manageable. In the event of an emergency, do you have the resources to ensure your staff can cope?back to top

- A labor attorney
- Human Resources Consultant(s)

- A Workers’ Compensation carrier
- A risk management company
- Multiple employee benefit carriers & brokers
- Section 125 & retirement plan administrators
- A payroll vendor

Are you getting bombarded with questions? How much time off do I have? Am I claiming 1 or 2 on my withholdings? Can I get a copy of my pay stubs for last quarter? I lost my W-2 – can I get another copy? Answers to these questions and more are now available online. That’s right – they can look it up themselves.
Your employees can view their pay history, withholding status, and personal profile. They can complete forms, reprint pay stubs and W-2’s. All are available from any web browser and many are available from our mobile app. Even terminated employees have access to their pay history and W-2s. It’s more efficient and it saves time – so you can focus on what you do best.back to top
