Searching for the Best Restaurant PEO Provider

Running a restaurant is extremely difficult and the more you can get taken off your plate (pun totally intended!), the more successful you’re likely to be. By choosing a reputable PEO (Professional Employer Organization), you can improve how your restaurant operates and reduce operating costs.

Not all PEO companies are the same, of course. It’s important that you choose a reputable PEO provider for restaurants. To assist you with this, we’ve put together some simple tips and suggestions to get you started.

Look into Their Business Reputation

Check out the company you’re looking into by looking for online reviews. Ask for references and poke around their website. Look at their Better Business Bureau rating. This will give you an idea of how they conduct business and work with businesses and employees of all types.

Check Out Their Certifications

The Employer Services Assurance Corporation offers accreditation for PEO companies. This provides confirmation that the PEO is adhering to certain industry standards including payment of taxes, insurance premiums, industry best practices, state, and federal regulations, etc. This accreditation may be viewable on the PEO company’s website, but you can always request it directly if you don’t see it.

Focused on Your Workers’ Needs

Like any business, your restaurant’s workers are its most important asset. It should be clear from the get-go that the solutions offered by the company are focused on the needs of your workers and your overall business. They should also offer exemplary customer service that react quickly, so your employees have confidence in working with them.

Focused on Your Company’s Needs

In addition to being focused on your workers, the PEO company should also be focused on your restaurant’s particular needs. This would include payroll services, workers’ compensation, and a variety of other HR tasks. If you have any specific concerns, you’d like them to focus on, never hesitate to make a request.

Comfort with the PEO Staff

Many situations taken on by a PEO company involves issues such as workers’ compensation claims, payroll questions, risk management issues, etc. If their staff is unpleasant or even indifferent, this won’t instill confidence in your restaurant’s staff. Again, it should always feel as if they’re a part of your team.

Payroll & Payroll Tax Management

Maintaining proper payroll services is one of the most important aspects of any business because your workers require – and absolutely deserve – a reliable paycheck. They should also be confident that any changes to their payroll taxes or questions about pay are handled right away. Ask about their PEO payroll services and how they handle any reported problems with the payroll process.

Workers’ Compensation

Dealing with a workers’ compensation claim is often a tricky, delicate situation. Not only should you ask a PEO company about their experience, but you should also expect to receive the best assistance possible when dealing with workers’ compensation. This is especially important in the restaurant industry where injuries can be somewhat commonplace due to the nature of the work. They should also treat every case with sensitivity and not rush employees through the process.
