Managing your business processes is a complicated task. Hiring and developing the knowledge and expertise required to manage these tasks on a day to day basis can be costly, difficult, and will likely keep you from focusing on what you do best, running and growing your business.
Bundled services offered by Solid Business Solutions gives our clients the ability to outsource a combination of business processes and employer related responsibilities freeing up more time to focus on running and growing their business.
Our PEO Solution and ASO Solution both enable employers to cost-effectively outsource administration of payroll, human resources, employee benefits, and workers' compensation to us as a single point of contact to manage employer related risks and responsibilities. Unlike traditional methods of working with multiple vendors, including payroll companies, insurance brokers, CPA's, HR advisors, etc. we provide a bundled solution to help manage these business processes more effectively.
ASO Solution vs. PEO Solution - Which one is right for your business?
The Professional Employer Organization (PEO) solution and Administrative Services Organization (ASO) solution both enable employers to cost-effectively outsource the administration of payroll, human resources, employee benefits, and workers' compensation. The PEO Solution creates a co-employment relationship, whereas Solid Business Solutions as your PEO assumes some responsibilities related to employer risks and responsibilities. In comparison, the ASO Solution provides the same level of dedicated support to manage these responsibilities on your behalf but does so without creating a co-employment relationship.
