 Hiring is something that most businesses start out doing on their own. Jobs are posted manually, resumes are reviewed in detail, applicants are personally interviewed and references are checked. For businesses that are growing, this hands-on personal approach can get overwhelming. It can be very difficult for the owner or upper-management to find time to search for new hires and move the interview and onboarding process forward. Hiring is just the beginning as employers must take steps to attract and retain skilled talent.

Recruiting is one of the many areas that a professional employer organization can be a resource. Rather than spending valuable time on the process of finding new employees, you can rely on a team of outside experts to attract employees that are not capable, dedicated and  prepared for the work ahead. The following are four key ways that a PEO can help your self storage business.

1) Reduce Cost of Recruiting: Recruiting can use up a lot of your overhead in both calculable revenue and the valuable time of your managers. Posting positions on job boards, sorting through resumes and interviewing can impact the thin margins of profit and productivity of a growing business. When working with a PEO, you can rely on innovative technology and efficient experts to  find acceptable candidates and handle most of the initial recruiting phases. Your managers will find themselves with a neatly-stacked pile of resumes and a short list of valuable, available candidates to choose from with minimal cost and zero time wasted.

2) Fill Positions Faster:  Empty positions can post an extreme hardship to a business. Whether you need to source a new CFO or fill your ranks with associates, outsourcing recruitment to a PEO can be an effective solution for identifying candidates quickly. PEOs specialize in connecting candidates to employers. No matter what kind of position you need filled, a PEO has the technology, resources, connections and skills to source a great selection of candidates. 

3) Offer Fortune 500-Level Benefits Packages: Employee benefits are consistently ranked as one of the most important things to a job seeker however, assembling an attractive and competitive employee benefits package can be a daunting task for a business. Robust benefits packages ordinarily include 401(k) or other retirement plans, health, dental and vision insurance, pet insurance, life insurance, flexible spending and health savings accounts.  Those packages are usually very expensive and commonly offered by large companies due to the costs associated with offering and maintaining these benefits.

PEOs serve as a market aggregator, giving each client the purchasing power of a large corporation. When you work with a PEO, you have access to insurance products and other ancillary services that can retain top talent, at a fraction of the price it would cost to obtain these services on an individual basis.

4) Help You Stay in HR Compliance:  One of the biggest challenges for businesses is staying in compliance with the complex federal, state and local laws regarding recruiting and hiring employees. There are laws that govern what questions can be asked on an application, whether you can require arbitration of disputes as a condition of employment, drug testing requirements, hiring notices etc. Keeping track of these laws and the changes that are taking place each year can be difficult. 

Working with a PEO can take the headache out of staying in compliance. You can use a PEO to serve as your external human resources department. They will help you stay abreast of legal changes, notify you when there are changes on the horizon and help update forms and hiring practices to limit  exposure to a lawsuit or claim. These outsourced HR professionals are happy to use their expertise to help keep your business compliant.  A PEO can help a small business reduce cost of recruiting, fill positions faster, offer Fortune 500-level benefits packages and assist with HR compliance.
