PEO Alternative

The 19:21 Consultants PEO Alternative Program

A Different Approach

Small businesses often find that Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) model is set up to keep you dependent upon their processes. The 19:21 Consultants PEO Alternative program aims to set up internal scalable processes and grow with your company, even if that means shedding services in the future.

Pros of a PEO Model:


Provides benefits, HR, worker’s comp, and payroll all in one place, and having one platform for everything can reduce workload.


Offers competitive health insurance rates for benefits and sometimes workers compensation.


Provides on-demand HR assistance and can reduce employers’ liability.

Risk Management

Helps mitigate risk and/or supports the Loss Control Department for Workers’ Compensation.

Liability Shield

Can help protect from employment lawsuits.

Cons of a PEO Model:

Mid-tier Service

Most PEOs are good at everything but great at nothing.

High Administrative Fees

High fees for services offset the insurance savings for many companies.

Limited HR

Proactive and strategic HR consulting is limited in most PEOs.


Most companies are dependent on the PEO’s systems rather than internal processes.


Can provide a false sense of security and limited oversight can lead to costly errors.


Typically do not provide best-in-class technology.
