HR Knowledge provides a service that is a hybrid between a Payroll Company and a PEO (Professional Employer Organization). A PEO becomes the “Employer of Record” for your employees thus you lose some control of your employees. Since the PEO is now the Employer they choose the benefits for you and can often make decisions on how you hire and how you terminate employees. A Payroll Company is more like an HR Consulting Service that provides you their service as a consultant.
The difference with HR Knowledge is the model by which we deliver our service to you. We are not the Employer of your Employees, but we do provide virtually the same suite of services that a PEO provides. We provide these services as a Human Resources Consulting Company as your Employees do not become our Employees. Thus we are able to provide you with the best of both service models without becoming the "employer of record".
In addition, our service fees are a fraction of what a PEO can cost yet we provide the same sorts of services.
