What is a Benefit Audit and Why Does Your Business Need One?

Posted by Employer Flexible on May 8, 2018

Providing quality benefits to employees is a primary factor in retention and recruitment among companies both small and large.

It is the PEO’s role to educate the client on the plan design of their benefits and on how much the employer should contribute to recruit the best talent to their organization. Companies without a PEO relationship require much more internal effort to secure quality benefits and ensure that benefits run smoothly from a financial perspective.
