Frequently Asked Questions
A PEO is a Professional Employer Organization which helps companies by providing human resources, worker’s compensation, employee benefits and payroll services. Companies outsource their human resources to a PEO and maintain control of their business while the PEO manages work that doesn’t generate revenue.
Business owners want to focus their time and energy on the 'business of their business' and not the ‘business of employment'. As business grows, most owners don't have the necessary human resources training, payroll and accounting skills, the knowledge of regulatory compliance or the insurance and employee benefit programs to meet the demands of being an employer.

In Canada, 'PEO' (Professional Employer Organization) refers to a co-employment relationship whereby the PEO provider offers services such as payroll, HR and employee relations, but does not assume the full liability for the employment relationship.
An 'Employer of Record' (EOR) provides similar services to a PEO, however the EOR assumes full liability for all employees and is considered the legal employer under Canadian Labour Legislation.
The OI Group offers PEO and Employer of Record services.
