You can grow your HR team internally, partner with HR support, outsource HR entirely, or sign up with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO). Each option has pros and cons, and “On the Other Side of the PEO” will clarify what you’re getting, what you’re giving up, and what it might look like on the other side of the PEO.
