Benefits Administration

Providing benefits will help attract and retain quality employees. Unfortunately, it’s often difficult and expensive to tackle on your own. With the changes mandated by the Affordable Care Act, now more than ever, you need a partner that can provide and manage your employee benefits without breaking your bottom line.

PEOple Premier, through our preferred relationship and buying power with benefit vendors, will allow your company to extend comprehensive voluntary and company-provided benefit choices to your employees at competitive rates. We fully administer benefits form eligibility to open enrollment to life changing events and the associated documentation; giving you freedom to concentrate on revenue-generating activities.

We provide full live telephone support to answer any questions and assist your employees in resolving any issues.


Benefits Solutions

PEOple Premier offers a wide range of employee benefit plans through our strategic partners.

  • Major Medical with Prescription Coverage
  • Dental
  • Term Life
  • Critical Illness
  • Guaranteed Acceptance Health
  • Accident


Want to extend retirement savings to your employees? PEOple Premier can do this for you with many options for matched and unmatched 401(K) plans.


Benefit Coordination

Coordinating benefits for employees can be messy and complicated. Keeping track of who’s eligible and when, when elections have to be completed, running an open-enrollment, answering employee questions, dealing with carriers, can all cause a lot of headaches.

PEOple Premier has been working with our clients for over a decade and we can help your business keep benefit management under control.

Risk Management has historically been a very low priority for small to medium-sized businesses. Risk can be elusive and difficult to identify, and very costly if not addressed properly. Recent trends suggest a dramatic shift in attention, especially with the Affordable Care Act, which includes a number of provisions that increase the HR liability that businesses face.

PEOple Premier is experiences in helping our clients identify and reduce the risks inherent in managing their Human Resources. We are proactive and stay abreast of the latest changes that may bring added exposure to your business. Don’t want until you’re faced with fines and civil proceeding before taking a closer look at your HR risks.

Tired of managing your employees the old-fashioned way? Wouldn’t it be great to have all the information for your employees at your fingertips in an easy-to-use web-based solution? Wouldn’t it be even better if you could give employees self-service for common HR functions?

PEOple Premier has the answer. We offer a Human Resource Management (HRM) solution to our clients that is web-based so it can be accessed anywhere, anytime, right from the internet, offering your business convenience and ease-of-use.

The HRM solution is fully integrated and modular. We can tailor your solution with the features you need now and in the future. All of the data is real-time– know what’s happening when it happens! There’s even a mobile app that allows you and your employees access to information on the go.

Here are just a few of the many features:

  • Payroll
  • Benefits
  • Time & Attendance
  • HR
  • Labor Management
  • Reporting and Analytics
Did you know that you can qualify for a credit on your workers’ compensation premium by administering a drug free workplace? Do you want to ensure the information being provided to you by an applicant is in fact correct? Proper screening before hire and post-employment follow-up helps to protect your business by avoiding misrepresentation that may occur during the hiring process. Exercising diligence early helps save your investment in time and money during, and well after the hiring process.

-Pre-employment Testing (Personality Index, Cognitive Skills)

-Drug Screening

Vice President of Development, The Premier Family of Companies

“As Executive VP of Finance of a Family of Companies, I have been a client of People Premier, Inc, for the past 5 years, but the Family of Companies has been with People Premier for over 17 years. The staff is highly trained in a wide variety of areas including assessing whether to lease employees or to maintain ownership of the employees and use an ASO (Administrative Services Organization) model. As a Family of Companies, there are issues concerning location, insurance, lease vs. ASO and others which require expertise to identify the appropriate level of services for each type of company and each type of employee. Whenever there has been a need for information or research, the staff acts quickly and helps us to resolve issues efficiently and effectively. People Premier offers complete Human Resources services, including Recruiting. Their highly trained staff recruits the best candidates through assessments including behavioral, cognitive and strength- based leadership skills to place employees in positions in which they are set up to succeed. The level of expertise displayed by the staff is above and beyond that of other existing PEO’s. The management of People Premier stays on the cutting edge of industry news and updates and applicable updates are communicated to us timely and consistently. People Premier, Inc. provides more than simply leasing employees or payroll processing, they can be your entire outsourced HR department including assisting with identifying and implementing Corporate Culture.” Elizabeth Barry

Their professionalism and customer service is second to none.” Mac Slauson

Vice President, Optimal Construction Management

What is the Difference Between PEO and ASO?


PEO relationships take the administrative burden off of the employer and business owner. Through outsourcing the business processes, the time spent preparing payroll can be refocused on generating revenue and operations.

PEO (Professional Employer Organization)

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) commonly referred to as “employee leasing” is a full-service offering. It includes the administration of payroll processing, human resources, employee benefits, and workers’ compensation. With a PEO relationship, employees are grouped together creating cost effective benefit options and management efficiencies enabling employers to focus on running their business.

ASO (Administrative Services Organization)

In an Administrative Service Organization (ASO) model there is no employment relationship between your employees and the ASO. The employer maintains the employee-employer relationship and retains the employer of record designation. We will custom tailor a solution to provide you the services that address your specific needs and offer the most benefit for your organization.


Custom options available to fit your business needs. Whether you are looking for a completely hands-off approach to HR administration, or you just need a little assistance– we have you covered.
