While some businesses still utilize old-fashioned paper applications or ads, many companies are beginning to discard these practices in favor of online recruitment solutions.

FREMONT, CA: Working with a professional employer organization (PEO) will enable businesses to attract and retain employees. In this article, we are going to look at how PEOs help small businesses attract and retain talent.

Providing Employee Benefits

With the Affordable Care Act (ACA), many small businesses are legally required to provide insurance options to full-time employees. Furthermore, offering benefits can be very confusing and costly, which means a lot of paperwork and extra stress for business owners. When a PEO handles businesses’ insurance options, they will only comply with regulations as well as bureaucratic red tape. Sometimes, they can provide businesses with better options and rates, making policies more accessible and affordable.

Utilizing Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS)

While some businesses still utilize old-fashioned paper applications or want ads, many companies are beginning to discard these practices in favor of online recruitment solutions. Digital applications are eco-friendly, better organized, and make it a lot easier for both applications and listings to be updated whenever necessary. They are inclined to be more flexible in their formatting since many integrate personality tests or industry-oriented questions. This helps filter out applicants who would not be the right fit for the business. A PEO would have access to an Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) that help make personalization options possible, and more importantly, they will have a team of experts set it up for the business.

Writing Catchy Job Descriptions and Offer Letters

Creating an accurate and catchy portrait of a vacant position is not as easy as it seems. Job descriptions must be honest and attractive, detailed but crisp, and unique. Hence, creating a perfect job description can be difficult, especially if writing is not one’s forte. However, with a PEO on board for the recruiting process, one can easily outsource that responsibility to them.
