HR Headaches?: A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) Can Offer Relief
The primary concern most fast food business and franchise owners encounter is the balance of front of the house demands and back of the house operations. Both of these areas require attention and both serve as pillars within the operation. For franchise owners, many of you can multiply this by two or more depending on the number of operational units you own.
This is why most franchise owners perceive many of the back of the house necessities as daunting tasks, many of which are taking up valuable time that could be spent managing food costs, employees, and meeting customer expectations. Although a majority of franchise owners employ an in-house human resource member, the process of following up and delegating still exists. This prompts the question; So how much time does an in-house human resource and payroll processor really save you?
What if you could reduce the cost and time spent managing these tasks and also protect your businesses from non-compliance when managing employees? Would you?
Let's face it franchising is tough, not to mention the ever-growing list of demands from all levels of legal accountability - including employees. Using a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) to outsource employee administrative tasks and payroll processing can help position your franchise for growth and expansion. How so? Well, franchise owners who receive consistency and quality controls from their franchisor will also experience the same level of support with a PEO provider when it comes to benefits, taxes, payroll, and additional HR services, serving as another level of protection.
Currently, many franchise owners trust a PEO provider to keep up-to-date with evolving and changing laws and regulations. PEO providers can also provide I-9 compliance as well, which will ensure that all of your employees are always operating within insurance regulations. A PEO provider will monitor your current practices and audit your current pay methods in order to ensure that you are in compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act.
A good PEO understand the legal risks that can ease the mind of many franchise owners. And PEOs can allow smaller operators to offer the same great benefits as larger chains at an affordable rate. This is a great way to acquire and retain quality employees. After all, customer service and quality employees along with great products and services are the key to any successful franchise business.
Because all quotes are kept private and free of service, you have nothing to loose by reaching out today to speak to a PEO professional.
