You’ve gotta grow or you’re gonna plateau! Growth can be tough, though – once you’ve made it through the endless interviews & hiring, you have to deal with the cost & administrative burden of all the paperwork that comes with each team member. So here’s a question: what if you didn’t have to?
Join us for this exciting webinar with Pat Cleary – the President and CEO of the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO), the national trade association for the PEO industry.

PEO’s are part of a rapidly growing trend in outsourcing that leverages economies of scale, digital communications, and specialized labor to take the burden managing repetitive tasks off of the company and allowing them to focus on what really matters by contracting the busywork to a PEO.

According to Wikipedia, “Typically, the PEO offering may include human resource consulting, safety and risk mitigation services, payroll processing, employer payroll tax filing, workers’ compensation insurance, health benefits, employers’ practice and liability insurance (EPLI), retirement vehicles (401(k)), regulatory compliance assistance, workforce management technology, and training and development.”
Before taking over at NAPEO, Cleary was senior vice president of digital public affairs at Fleishman-Hillard, focusing on helping clients drive their messages through new media channels. He’s had a wide-ranging career spanning more than 25 years in government, policy, public affairs, and communications, with areas of expertise include human resources, health care, economics, and trade – and he’s bullish on the future of outsourcing:
“Anybody who’s gone to business school in the last 20 years has had 1 commandmant hammered into them: if its not your core business, outsource it. Security, travel, tech, HR – it’s not your core business, outsource it. We found in our last round of market research last year that the cohort that was the biggest user of PEOs were CEOs age 25 to 35 – so that generation is very, very friendly to outsourcing, and it works.” – Pat Cleary
A former chairman of the National Mediation Board and deputy assistant secretary for policy at the U.S. Department of Labor, Cleary also spent 10 years at the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), the nation’s largest industrial trade association. He’s lectured on negotiation and dispute resolution at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business and at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and is the author of The Negotiation Handbook. His education includes the Program for Senior Managers in Government at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and the Executive Development Program at Wharton. He is a member of the D.C. Bar and serves on the Corporate Advisory Board of SOME (So Others Might Eat).
“Think about it. Whatever time you’re spending on payroll, HR, benefits, vacation time, or God forbid, employment litigation – these things that were just a huge money suck. That’s all gone – because you just contracted that out. ” – Pat Cleary
Pat’s right – and think about this: the same applies to administrative, marketing, inside sales & transaction coordination busywork. Gone, poof! You just contracted it out.
