While we wish we had a nickel for every time someone asked that question, we’re always happy to oblige because we get excited telling our story. Much to everyone’s surprise, ATA Employment Solutions is a professional employer organization (PEO) specializing in permanent, full-time employment for our client employers. Client employers are our customers who utilize our services either in a “full-service” capacity or ala carte in which case they may only rely on us for recruiting employees to fill their full-time permanent positions. We accept resumes and applications from individuals so that we have a database of qualified applicants to choose from when positions become available.
Contrary to popular belief, we do not specialize in temporary staffing. While temp staffing services are necessary in many lines of business, we focus on permanent employment opportunities. Also unlike many temporary staffing agencies, we are paid directly by the client employer and there is no deduction or fee on an employee’s paycheck for our services. The concept of PEO’s is about 30 years old and is widely recognized by government entities and will continue to gain support with the recent Small Business Efficiency Act (SBEA). With this act, the connection of PEO utilization and small business success is being acknowledged by the government. PEO clients are able to focus on their core business while the PEO cost-effectively manages their human resources. Businesses who use a PEO experience higher growth, improved work environments, and better employee retention. If you are a business interested in learning more about our services, give us a call – we love to tell our story! And if you’re an individual looking for permanent employment, apply with us today!
