Jason Irving returns to us as a client with his new company, Engenium Staffing, a technical, engineering and professional recruiting and staffing firm.
“PEO Pros was and still is our best option for securing workers’ compensation and other insurance products.” Jason tells us, “We come here first and never need to go anywhere else. Now that they are partnered with Stonehenge Insurance and Hourglass Property and Casualty, they can take care of our other needs as well.”
We are happy to provide Jason and his company with workers’ comp, general liability, umbrella liability and even have one of our partner agencies working on his homeowner’s policy.
Here is a short interview with Jason where he tells us of some exciting positions available in his industry:
“The first time I even thought about W-2s this year was when our personal copies arrived in the mail” Destinations Unlimited Tours owner Mike Mackey tells us. “It’s a tremendous relief not to worry about that and other HR issues like payroll taxes and workers’ comp insurance. I’m so glad PEO Pros found us a good match for our PEO services.”
Mike and Starr Mackey, pictured here, are the owners of this combination travel agency and charter bus company.
“We like to work with tour groups. Schools, churches and other common interest groups can have us take them to the cruise ship, the big game, or even a safe tour of New York City. We take them to the best restaurants, best hotels, and all of the details are taken care of.”
“The PEO relationship has enabled us to provide proper insurance coverage to work with public schools, department of defense and other heavily regulated agencies. Workers’ Comp was always a black cloud that hung over our head before. Now it is somebody else’s problem.”
“We even have a ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ where the guests are only told how much money to bring, and when they will be back. I’m not going to spoil it by telling you where we are going this time, but we have gone to places like Mobile, AL and toured the Navy Museum, stopped in Panama City Beach for some sun and white sand, and even hit some breweries and wineries along the way. It’s one of our most popular tour packages.”
“Folks enjoy taking us to the cruise ship, because the vacation begins when they step on the bus, and doesn’t end until they get back home. No driving to Miami or Fort Lauderdale. No parking worries. No traffic. Leave the worries to us!”
Destinations Unlimited Tours has been a client of ours since 2008. They have recommended our service to some of their friends in the industry, the best testimonial a client can give!
“We recently had a worker who was out on sick leave” Starr Mackey tells us. “It was so nice to simply make a call to the PEO and find out what we needed to do. They are always only a call or email away.”
“On a personal level, I like it because we have direct deposit and my money goes right to my bank account” says Debby Boote in Business Development. “And on a business level, I like it because if there is ever a problem or a question I can go to the PEO and they are always there to help out right away.”
Would it comes as a surprise that small to medium business owners are dealing more with unemployment issues these days? Wouldn’t it be great to hand those problems off to someone else?
With the services of a PEO, where the PEO becomes the “employer of record”, it is no longer the client’s responsibility to deal with unemployment issues (such as claims and UE taxes.) That all becomes “Somebody Else’s Problem” (the PEO’s) and the client can continue to build their business.
Allan Jackson, owner of Southeastern Data, explains (in the video below) how a PEO got rid of his unemployment problems in the video below. Southeastern Data is entering their third year as a client of a PEO (placed by PEO Pros.)
Southeastern Data is one of the most unique businesses in Central Florida. From their website:
“Since 1996 Southeastern Data has provided recycling & remarketing of of all types of computers & electronic equipment. We offer pickup service across the nation and to a number of locations outside of the country.
Southeastern Data is an expert at recycling all forms of electronics and equipment. We also offer wholesale pricing of refurbished and new-old-stock items at our warehouse location in Oviedo, Florida. Our warehouse is open to the public Monday-Friday, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. with other hours available by appointment.”
Allan Jackson, owner and CEO tells us “I wish I’d known about PEOs when I got started. I could have avoided a lot of headaches in our first year of business associated with managing payroll and taxes, but the real benefit early on would have come from expert help with basic HR issues such as unemployment and workers comp insurance. The time and money that I used to spend on that is now completely focused on the business. It’s been a huge upgrade! I also can’t say enough about PEO Pros in helping me find the best PEO solution for our needs at every step in my company’s evolution. My best advice for moving to a PEO relationship would be to make PEO Pros your first call.”
We are also clients of Southeastern Data. We have purchased all of our office computers and other tech items from their high quality collection of previously owned equipment.
