About Us

Human Capital Management is a set of resource management practices that focus on the organizational needs to provide an overall strategy to guide talent attraction, recruitment, on-boarding, employee training and development, performance appraisal and feedback. When working with Applied, your company enters a co-employer relationship. Applied assumes responsibility for payroll and payroll tax compliance, workers compensation insurance, benefits administration, and other HR related tasks. Your company remains the worksite employer and continues to retain day to day control and direction of worksite employees.

Answers to Your Questions

What is a PEO?

Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) provide HR and human capital management services for businesses of any size; paying wages, filing taxes, assisting with state and federal compliance regulations and more. 

In addition, we also provide access to Master Medical health plans, commercial and life insurance, 401(k) plans and other benefits not typically provided by small businesses. These services enables our clients to cost-effectively outsource nearly all aspects of their employee management.

How does it work?

We enter a co-employment relationship with our clients, where we remit wages of the worksite employees, collect and deposit employment taxes and issues W-2 forms. We can also provide a complete HR and benefits package for your employees. Our clients retain responsibility over product development, business operations, marketing, sales and services.

Who uses our services?

Many clients take advantage of our robust web-based HR technologies & human capital management; including businesses ranging from accounting firms to high-tech companies and small manufacturers. We also service a broad range of professionals, including doctors, retailers, mechanics, engineers and contractors.

How do we benefit employers?

Employees of small businesses gain access to big-business benefits such as: health, dental, life, 401k plans and other insurances they might not typically receive as employees of a small company. Job satisfaction and productivity increase when employees are provided with professional human resource services, enhanced benefits, training, employee manuals, safety services and improved communications.

How do PEO’s help their clients control costs and grow their bottom line?

A PEO’s scale-able service offerings enables each client company to lower employment costs and increase the business’s bottom line. The client can maintain a simple in-house HR infrastructure or none at all by relying on the PEO. The client may also reduce hiring overhead. The professionals at the PEO can provide critical assistance with employer compliance, which helps protect the client against liability. In many cases, the client can pay a small up-front cost for a significant technology and service infrastructure or platform provided by the PEO. In addition, the PEO provides time savings by handling routine and redundant tasks for its clients. This enables the business owner to focus on the company’s core competency and grow its bottom line.

As a Human Resources Manager, I believe I have gained co-workers when we switched our payroll and group health benefits... to Applied Business Solutions. The ABS Team remains professional, punctual with responses to me and employees and detail oriented in the product and services provided. ABS presented insurance plans that we have not been able to offer our employees in 5+ years. I highly recommend you ask for Eric if you want to be competitive in benefits being offered to current and potential employees. In 28 years, this was my company’s first-time teaming with a company that would move functions outside of our office. We are very pleased with the results and would do it again in a heartbeat. That is what we are with ABS, a team, and they make you feel like it.read more
