As a business process outsourcing firm that rivals Professional Employer Organizations (PEO) for Rhode Island businesses, HR Knowledge provides clients with an integrated service model that combines the following capabilities under one roof: human resources, such as compliance, training and risk management; group benefits; payroll processing; and financial services, such as 401(k) plans and individual life insurance policies.
An alternative to Professional Employer Organizations in Rhode Island
Their model differs from a PEO (professional employer organization) – which also acts as a single-source provider of integrated services — in a key way: PEOs in Rhode Island essentially become a co-employer of their clients’ company. HR Knowledge, on the other hand, does not become the employer of record; it provides a consulting arrangement whereby its clients receive their benefits under their own company name.HR Knowledge’s target customers are primarily small to midsize businesses – usually those with 200 employees or fewer — which the principals say often don’t have full HR departments in-house, or have limited resources to address all those related issues.
