PEO Exit

Already in a PEO and need to scale? SCG has you covered.

Growing businesses can reach a point where the costs of working with a PEO outweigh the benefits, and some companies expanding into new states may also run into limitations on what PEOs can do there—eliminating the PEO’s original value proposition. If you’re dissatisfied or you’ve outgrown your PEO, let SCG do the heavy lifting to take you out of it.

Recent data shows 60% of businesses outgrow their PEO within the first five years due to cost and service limitations.

Signs it may be time to
move off your PEO:

  • Cost Inefficiencies: High fees and hidden costs are starting to become cost-prohibitive as your company grows
  • Loss of Control: Visibility and decision-making power over critical areas like benefits, recruiting, and compliance have become less available
  • Limited Customization: Lack of flexibility and rigid standardization has stunted your options for customized HR solutions

Have you noticed any of the above? SCG is here to help.

SCG helps businesses avoid the PEO penalty.

When it is time to leave a PEO, companies are left to start over. They must build their own HCM technology, hire and onboard employees, establish payroll tax ID’s, etc. That’s the “PEO penalty” for your success.

That’s why SCG’s ASO exists. We provide all the HR benefits of a PEO, but we build and run it on technology and processes that can be transferred to you once you are ready to leave our ASO and bring all HR in-house.
