PEO Broker Services

PEOs provide a turnkey HR, payroll, and benefit solution for small businesses to help them run more efficiently while also reducing benefit and worker's compensation expenses. The benefits to this are obvious, but because of their widely varying structures, which PEO may be the best fit for your needs will not be so obvious. Rise will make sure you receive all the advantages in a way that makes sense for your business.

What is a PEO?

Professional Employer Organizations partner with small and medium sized businesses to provide a streamlined benefits, payroll, and worker's compensation solution.

What are the benefits of using a PEO?
PEOs bring massive buying power to the small and medium sized businesses that greatly reduce costs in employee benefits while maintaining the quality of package offered.


Our Process:

  1. Introductory Call
    This is a 30-minute conversation to determine specific criteria that will be used when evaluating which PEO may best suit your needs. We examine your current human resources situation, your business needs, and your objectives.

  2. Data Collection
    We analyze pertinent data identified during the introductory call to evaluate pricing across the appropriate PEO spectrum. Key factors include necessary healthcare quality, level of service, affordability, and geographic presence.

  3. Software Demo
    We set up a software demonstration of the PEO’s platform so that each of our clients can see the look and feel of the platform and ask additional questions that pertain to their individual needs. We also provide detailed pricing for your individual needs so you can make an educated and informed decision.

  4. Proposal & Pricing
    We provide detailed pricing for your individual needs so you can make an educated and informed decision.

Turnkey HR for Emerging Companies

We know HR is challenging when you’re trying to scale. It’s complicated, time-intensive and if you don’t follow the rules and regulations, you’re asking for trouble. That’s where we come in: we take care of all those potential headaches so you don’t have to, and probably for less than you’re spending now.

How we help

Payroll and Compliance

We handle payroll for your full-time and part-time, salaried and hourly employees.  We provide support for one-time payments like commissions, expense reimbursements and bonuses.  In addition, taxes and employment laws are constantly changing.  Don't worry, we will make sure you are on top of it.  When various agencies show up and start asking questions, we are also right there with you every step of the way!


We can provide your team with access to a competitive 401(k) retirement plan that seamlessly integrates with your payroll.  We also provide access to financial literacy and coaching.

Administrative & Operational HR Support

We provide you with a base employee handbook and will work with you to customize any policies unique to your business.  When you have critical questions on how to handle something, we are available.

Health, Dental, Vision and Supplemental Benefits

We provide access to high-quality health, dental & vision plans at affordable rates.  We work with you to understand what is competitive for your market, and offer some "off the shelf" options for teams who just want to get started with a competitive plan without the complexity of designing their own plan from the bottom up.  We provide access to life and disability insurance for your employees.  LTD, STD, AD&D and Life Insurance options are all available.  We also offer HSA's and FSA's.

Strategic HR Consulting & Ancillary HR Support

When you need strategic HR support, we are there.  We can help with everything from compensation studies to hiring strategy, and from culture change to performance management.  If you have a new partnership that requires your employees to have new requirements like drug testing and/or background checks, we can process those for you as well.

Trajectory Management Coaching

We have worked with hundreds of companies and have a lot of experience with what it really takes to grow.  That is why all of our clients get access to our leadership team for one-on-one meetings at your request.  More than that, we are tapped into a huge network of angels, investors, advisors and consultants we can call on as needed.  We help with Talent & Culture, Employee Compensation & Equity Coaching, and sometimes just figuring out how to deal with scale.

Supporting Health Benefits & Health and Wellness

We provide access to employee assistance programs, telehealth options, and a plethora of other programs.  We want your employees to feel taken care of just like we would want to be taken care of if we worked for you.  We can help you plan, setup and administer various health and wellness programs.

Emerging Company Leadership Network

It is a small thing, but sometimes the small things matter most.

Technical Recruiting Assistance

We receive a number of unsolicited resumes to work with our companies.  In addition, we work with a lot of companies who interview a lot of potential hires, so we often have access to deeply technical talent that is not officially available.  Because people are so critical to an emerging company's success, we are sometimes in a position to move a candidate from one search to another, so that all of our clients have the opportunity to find the best possible people.
