How Does A PEO Work?

Working with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) may be a new experience, but one that will make your life easier and your business better.

If there’s one thing we know for sure at StaffScapes, it’s that HR and all of its associated tasks can be difficult and time-consuming. We’ve worked with countless business leaders who’ve been burning the wick at both ends just trying to keep up.

As the longest-standing privately-owned PEO in Colorado, our team of experts knows how to ensure your team is cared for. More than a new system to implement for your company, we are a team of people who understand and care for the needs of each individual employee.

Our mission is to free leaders from the day-to-day complexities of HR so they can focus on work that fulfills them and drives their companies forward.
