TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tampa-based PEO Advantage today introduced its industry-specific program for golf course businesses including golf clubs, country clubs and golf communities. The new program offers businesses significant savings opportunities through reductions in workers compensation premiums, access to discounted healthcare, and streamlined payroll and human resources administration provided by professional employer organizations.
"Golf businesses have a unique challenge in that they employ individuals with diverse job responsibilities; management, office personnel, landscaping, restaurant & bar service, grounds keeping, maintenance and more," explains Ryan DeJong, COO & Partner at PEO Advantage. "Traditionally, all employees are lumped into a single workers comp code to standardize the cost, but the business suffers higher rates than a typical office scenario, since they do in fact employ a few higher risk positions."
PEO Advantage's new program for golf businesses focuses on providing turnkey solutions through a relationship with a professional employer organization (PEO). PEOs offer numerous advantages when it comes to minimizing the cost of workers comp. There are no deposits or audits with Pay-As-You-Go policies and clients see an immediate surge in cash flow since their premium is based on actual wages during that exact pay period. Additionally, PEOs file and track claims, make sure claims are legitimate, manage safety reviews and OSHA compliance, and offload time-consuming documentation and reporting activities.
DeJong continued, "Our clients enjoy economies of scale otherwise not available in traditional markets. But workers compensation only begins to scratch the surface. Discounted healthcare, administrative support and especially guaranteed compliance are equally attractive to this industry, as many businesses currently struggle to keep up with the Health Care Reform Act and other legislative changes relevant to employers."
In the upcoming week, PEO Advantage will be introducing a 3-Part educational series (http://peoadvantage.com/blog/) for the owners of golf course businesses, which will further review workers compensation, healthcare, and administrative solutions.
DeJong concluded, "There are an increased number of challenges when it comes to employee management and compensation because of the many job types found on a golf course. Administrative support for payroll and HR is icing on the cake for our clients who are looking to save. Saving with a PEO comes alongside the added value of peace of mind and more time to focus on the day-to-day and long-term strategy required of successful business owners and managers."
