Everything's bigger in Texas… including the savings.
Texas is a massive state taking up a sizable chunk of the American southwest (and for most folks, it is the southwest. Sorry, Arizona and New Mexico). Its borders encompasses three of the nation's largest and most rapidly growing cities alongside vast thousand acre farms. And industries from cattle ranching to financial tech, healthcare to oil refining have planted significant roots on Texas soil. While still an incredibly business-friendly state, a PEO partner can help reduce significant HR headaches in the larger cities while ensuring great benefits at low costs from Corpus Christi to El Paso.
Here's why it doesn't pay to be a loner in the Lone Star State: talented employees expect top-notch benefits programs and a versatile HR infrastructure that makes their working lives easy. And with almost every industry having its own unique regulations and even employee safety/education requirements, guaranteed compliance is essential for any long-term plan. A PEO partner helps meet these needs while saving you substantial amounts of money and time. And with us, those savings get even bigger.
Here's our top 5 PEOs for folks doing business down in Texas — each of them offers excellent HR services, payroll services and benefits programs, employee education programs and more, but each also has unique traits that help them stand out.
Please note that due to how PEOs specialize in different client types, this is not a ranked list. Finding out which one best suits your need is as simple as a ten-minute call with Dinsmore/Steele — our form is the only one you need to fill out.
