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

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

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
Confused about which way to go? Getting conflicting information? Not sure who to believe? We put the tools you need at your finger tips.
How out of date is your handbook? With Allevity, you’ll receive a California compliant handbook that is customized to your company size. We constantly monitor law changes and keep your handbook up to date and in compliance. All required policies are addressed including At-Will Employment, New Employee Acknowledgement for Core Employment Policies, Immigration and Employment Law Compliance, Prohibiting Harassment Policy, Violence in the Workplace Policy. Now you can stop worrying about your handbook.
Note: if you haven’t worried about your handbook until now, that’s ok. We’ll get it up to speed for you. Oh, and did we mention it’s digital too? That means easy access anytime, from anywhere.
Employment Postings and Wage Orders
Employment posters have the life span of a mayfly. They’re so broad and cover so many laws and something is always changing. The only way to stay on top of this is have an expert (us) watch the ticker tape and send you new posters when things change. While not likely on your priority radar, out of date posters can result in hefty fines. Our diligence is your peace of mind.
What’s a wage order? If this wasn’t on your radar, you definitely need our service. We help you select the proper wage order and help keep you in compliance. You don’t know what you don’t know.
Compliant Forms, Templates, & Brochures
You’ll spend hours researching and compiling on your own the documents we have available for you in our online HR library. We have everything you need at your fingertips. With Allevity, you have direct access to compliant and current new hire forms (W-4, I-9, Employment Application, Personnel Action Form, etc.) as well as forms to record employee changes, performance reviews, leaves, and much more. You’ll have access to templates for a variety of documents like offer letters, disciplinary warnings, and promotions to name a few. And of course, you have access to the required brochures such as the EDD Notice to Employees, Paid Family Leave, Disability and more.
Get your safety program back on track with our safety tools. You’ll have access to our compliant Injury and Illness Prevention Program that’s ready to go. In addition to the core program, you can add on any of the optional forms as they suit your needs. They include forms such as Company Vehicle Inspection Checklist, Worksite Inspection Report, Safety Meeting Outlines and more.
