About Us

Our Values

We always put our clients’ interests first

We strive to provide the highest-value service and outcome for our clients, our partners, and ourselves. And to do this well, we are guided by four values that, taken together, enable us to Do The Right Thing.  This is how we define Education, Consultation, Responsiveness, and Respect.

Informing and guiding so that you, our client, have a full understanding of the topics and choices under review.

Bringing all relevant interests into consideration and conversation to be sure we have a full picture.

Making every effort to reply as promptly as possible and to keep you apprised during processes that take more time.

Listening with empathy in order to learn what you need. Then advise you as we are able and as is practical and feasible for you.

Our Approach

Building relationships allows us to serve you best

First – A Free Consultation
We begin by listening to you to determine your needs and evaluate the time and money that you could save by using a PEO.

Second – Research
Using the information from our  initial consultation, we research the available options to determine the best PEO solution for your unique goals and situation. We survey the options, talk to colleagues and affiliates, and take the time to seek out special products and services.

Third – Recommendations
We present to you what we believe are the best options for you, taking time to explain how you will potentially benefit from each choice.

Then – The Right Relationships
When you make your choices, we help you get started to establish relationships that provide the support services you want. Throughout the term of these relationships, we  stay by your side and are available as you need us to help in any way we can.
