Lets Talk

Ready for peace of mind from an integrated, single system for HR, Benefits, and Payroll?

Ensuring payroll is accurate is a task that regularly eats up a chunk of your most valued and skilled workers’ — or even your own — precious time. Small business owners often wonder if outsourcing something as integral as HR and payroll is the right thing to do. So you may be asking, why use a PEO?

With such an onus placed on accuracy, the slightest slip-up can lead to outrageous fines and discontent among your workforce. Financial risk, the cost to your reputation and potential loss of astute staff are a few aspects that make PEOs excellent value for the money.

Discover the many ways a PEO can add value to your business while only charging a fraction of the money they save.

PEO stands for Professional Employer Organization. Started in 1993, AdvanStaff HR is one of the industries most experienced and seasoned PEOs. We have guides business through the tech bubble, the banking crisis, COVID, and hyper-inflationary markets. We have seen and been through it all and will support you and your employees in any challenge in the future.

AdvanStaff HR takes care of your HR needs, from time-consuming payroll and administrative tasks, to employee benefit programs and administration, to state and federal compliance, and much more. We are experts in these specific fields. Lean on AdvanStaff for guidance and free your team to get on with what you specialize in. This is the magic of partnering with AdvanStaff HR.

Partnering with an HR expert has a host of other benefits. A truly unbiased and objective outlook on HR is healthy for your business and simply makes sense. You also gain access to the PEOs network of carriers, partners, solutions, and tools that elevate your business.

The AdvanStaff HR team aligns with your managers for your success.

You probably have your most detail-oriented and business-savvy staff dealing with payroll. Their time could be better used in an essential skilled admin role. They may be excellent with spreadsheets, recording employees’ hours and spending time going through rosters and number crunching, but that isn’t maximizing profits. Turn your people into profit centers.

Free up hours of time by partnering with us. Details, accuracy, and clean and auditable records are our key strengths, and it’s what we do every day. Growing a business is hard work, your team needs to stay focused at the task at hand. Doing payroll in-house is costly and inefficient. Partner with us and unlock your staff’s potential and gain the efficiency and cost savings using one unified payroll/hr system. We eliminate double data entry, connect payroll to superior HR and benefits, and enable managers and employees to access the info and processes they need to get back to work quickly.

When you’re experiencing growth, it’s time to look at the productivity of each person in your organization. Streamlining output and ensuring people are carrying out the tasks should be high up on your list of priorities. Bogging down your best minds with trying to keep up with HR compliance, admin and recruitment could be losing you tens of thousands of dollars a year and exposing your business to avoidable risk.

Partnering with AdvanStaff HR removes risk and is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. AdvanStaff HR retains over 98% of its clients year-to-year for a reason.

AdvanStaff HR manage tens of thousands of employees across it’s network. We access extraordinary employee benefits at a discounted rate. Not only do we know which benefits workforces respond to best, we save you money while attracting and retaining top talent. In addition to day-to-day benefit plan (health, dental, life) management, we take care of retirement benefits, ancillary benefits, and all of the perks you usually associate with big companies.

All of these products, services, and expertise are affordably available. Whether you have five or fifteen hundred employees,

You and your PEO work together to tailor these benefits to the requirements of your workforce. Speak to your team about what they want and fulfill some of their requests for optimum success.

AdvanStaff HR has been doing the heavy lifting for over 30 years…. all you need to do it partner with us and gain access to a warchest of turn-key programs ready to elevate your business.

Programs related to hiring, onboarding, benefit program enrollment, payroll, timekeeping, and tax compliance, talent and performance management, learning and compliance, tax-savings programs, and much more all in one place. When you get into the details, it’s difficult to see why any small business wouldn’t seek out this partnership.

PEO grow 7-9% faster, have 10-14% lower employee turnover, and are 50% less likely to go out of business.

Managing workers compensation policies, auditing payroll and premiums, helping employees get care and back to work, are costly and take precious time. These issue can be complex and we do this every day. Partner with us and our dedicated team of risk and claim managers will join your efforts to create a safe workplace while saving money. The safer the workplace, the healthier your employees are, and the better the bottom line.

When the workplace is safe, then employer and employee interest align and everyone is better off.

AdvanStaff HR has its own workers’ compensation insurance program, which usually comes at a discounted rate due to the sheer numbers of employees we have the books. As a small business, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to compete with these rates. When client partners leverage our workers compensation coverage and risk team services, the team works in collaboration with your core HR people to mitigate risks, keep the workplace safe, and elevates your profitability through proactive HR.

We all know that legal costs can quickly escalate and lawsuits are the undoing of many SMBs. AdvanStaff HR professionals have access to equal opportunity specialists as well as people who work with employer’s liabilities on a daily basis. Our intricate knowledge of compliance significantly lowers the risk of encountering avoidable employment regulatory challenges that aren’t in compliance with state law.

As an added layer of defense, you have an extra team of specialists to mitigate potentially devastating settlements.

One of the best ways to make your business stand out is by offering training and giving each of your workers a compliant employee handbook. Once again, the costs of these resources are lower due to the fact that PEOs have the economies of scale and expertise necessary to manage such programs.

Employee handbooks and the learning platform is included.

It can be difficult to stay on top of employee performance. Favoritism in the workplace is a reality, even if it’s difficult to admit. Having great relationships with your workforce is excellent for morale, and all great leaders inspire their teams. However, this closeness can cloud your judgment when it comes to performance. Having an objective program to keep track of productivity and output leaves you free to motivate your team and get the best out of them.

The AdvanStaff HR employee performance tracking software makes this integral part of day-to-day running quantifiable and objective. Employees stay in the know of expectations and how they fit within the organization using real-time factual evidence. No one can accuse you of treating them unfairly when these carefully calculated results are provided in black and white.

You can’t put a value on peace of mind and AdvanStaff HR proves a very positive ROI year over year.

Even the smallest payroll, ADA, OSHA and EOCC, ACA, DOL mistake can see your company penalized with disproportionate fines. The best employees will be the first to leave if they are not rewarded and valued. Keep your top employees doing what they love and specialize in.

Saving on employee benefits as well as staff retention provides a huge boost to your long-term profitability. Tracking the success of your team by measuring their performance in real time allows you to ensure you look after the staff who are looking after you.

Taking good care of your employees just got easier.

Part of growing a healthy business is rewarding a strong team that is helping you get there. That’s where AdvanStaff HR steps in. We offer support and services designed to grow with your needs in mind.

Businesses that partner with a PEO grow 7-9% faster, have 10-14% lower employee turnover, and are 50% less likely to go out of business.

A personalized approach designed just for you.

No two businesses are the same. We design a personalized HR plan that actually meets your needs.

We start by sitting down together with our onboarding team and review your specific priorities. We’ll then build a strategic plan and assemble a team from across our different departments, all led by a dedicated hr specialist (your personal HR quarterback).

If you are looking to team up with a technically sound HR/Benefits and Payroll company that offers superior customer service, look no further than Advanstaff. I have been working with Brad Hafen and the Advanstaff team for several years. The Advanstaff team has consistently provided friendly, reliable and prompt customer service. I cannot think of a time when they were unable to help with payroll processing and HR/benefits questions. Call Advanstaff today!

We are very happy with Amy Beaman... She is very responsible to our needs here at Faith Community it is a great feeling to have her on the benefits side for our over 100 employees ...

I have had the privilege of working with Advanstaff for the last year after converting from a poorly performing PEO. Brad Hafen has been my HR Specialist since Day One. Brad is always responsive to my calls and emails and when he can't provide an answer right away, he lets me know -- which is unheard of these days! I value my working partnerships when they make me feel like I am their one and only customer. Brad does this for me! I'm not even sure he realizes it. I can admit that I just don't think I could be as productive in my job if I didn't have Brad ! Thanks Brad. YOU ROCK!

We have used Advanstaff for over 5 years now. They are extremely professional and always give amazing service. Our representative, Jen, is absolutely incredible. They have a wonderful team, and having HR assistance has been extremely helpful.

Front Desk Clerk she poppin!! Thanks Jennifer at Advanstaff HR... Payroll that is..

Ariana has been our employee point of contact for years and she is amazing! Always pleasant and prompt with answering question, finding solutions and supporting our staff!

It's been a pleasure working with Advanstaff for the past couple of years. I work closely with Susan and Margarita for all our payroll/HR needs and appreciate their ability to maintain their efficiency and timeliness. Advanstaff provides us with personal, friendly, and excellent customer service.

I rarely give reviews on products or services but in this instance, I feel the professionalism, attention to detail and personal assistance we receive from Advanstaff should be recognized. Without the assistance of their Payroll Administrator Maria Ayala-Graves my life would be much more complicated. I would recommend working with Advanstaff and specifically Maria to any business. Thank you for all you do.

Ariana is honestly such great help. She is always there to answer my questions at anytime of the day. Ariana is so kind and professional as well. She does a great job of explaining things I might not have that much knowledge about. Ariana has educated me a lot in areas I would not expect. It is such a pleasure working with her and the advanced staff team. Thank you for all you do Ariana!!

Everyone is very helpful, and they help with all HR needs.

Susan B is my dedicated Payroll Administrator. I cannot say enough about her professionalism and patience with me.

Sommer Cripps is amazing!

So glad I chose to use Advanstaff. I have very little HR knowledge and Ariana was super helpful with navigating the process. I truly could not have been happier with how kind and professional she was.

Barbara and the entire Advanstaff team do wonders for our business. Their professionalism and ease with which to get in contact make working with them an easy choice.

We have used AdvanStaff for our human resource needs for all of the companies we own and we would not consider switching to any other company. . We have been loyal customers now for about 25 years and have found that AdvanStaff remains professional and dedicated to us, its customers and they continue to outperform all their competitors especially for the level of customer service that AdvanStaff provides. Over the years AdvanStaff has grown and changed significantly, with more automation helping them to service more customers; however they continue to maintain the personal service that they had when they first started as a smaller family owned company. I have had the pleasure to work with a few of their staff and the personal attention each of them have provided has been incredible. Our current manager is Jennifer Ernst, who recently took over our account. Each transition to a new manager has been seamless since AdvanStaff has excellent retention of its own staff (a sign of a great company) and we have know Jennifer for many years. Like many of the staff she is delightful to work with, always professional and courteous, and goes above and beyond to ensure that our needs are met. AdvanStaff also has provided us with all our human resource needs to guide us through some difficult employee issues which regrettably sometimes happen. They remain up to date with all the regulations (especially Covid) and have been very helpful in guiding their customers through such times.

Our experience with Advanstaff has been nothing short of great! We are a small company and undertaking an in house HR team is something we could not do. Advanstaff takes all the headache out of managing HR. Their platforms are simple to use and their staff is always available to answer questions. We also use them to process our payroll and our account manager, Maria, is amazing. She immediately answers questions or requests and is very thorough at making sure our payroll needs are met. As a small business owner, partnering with someone who manages the HR needs an Payroll for your company is a little scary. It's hard to know who you can trust in this world. Advanstaff delivers on their promises and takes the fear and headache out of the processes!

We are so pleased to have AdvanStaff as our HR support company! Our specific team there is super efficient and very thorough whenever we call them for advice. Maria Ayala Graves, our Payroll Administrator, has provided a wealth of resources and guidance to our office for many years now and we are so thankful for her pleasant nature and her detailed assistance whenever we need her.

Great company with a team that takes pride in their work. They have been fully available for emails, phone calls and in person meetings when requested. Over the past year I've worked with Advanstaff, my interactions with Brad have been helpful, when seeking his HR guidance. He has helped to build my knowledge and confidence, which helped me build a stronger team.

Susan, Kelly and Ariana do an outstanding job for us here at Chayo. They are always willing to help us with anything that comes up. We are grateful to have all of their knowledge at our disposal.

Kylie is such a sweetheart and has been of great help to myself and my company!

This is an extraordinarily knowledgeable company run by integrity-driven professionals. I am pleased that our company uses them for all of our HR needs, top to bottom.

Ariana is our HR Specialist for our large restaurant group. She responds in a timely manner and always helps in any way. Thank you Ariana!

AdvanStaff is the one stop shop for all your HR needs. This company goes over and beyond for their clients. Michelle has the expertise and shows the utmost professionalism for everything. I would not go with any other company. Do yourself a favor and give them a call.

I have been a satisfied client of Advanstaff for over 10 years. Michelle does our payroll and is very conscientious in handling our requests and prompt in returning messages. The HR department has been helpful in advising how to proceed with employee related issues, which is something that I don't have training in as a small business owner. I only wish that we had other options for health insurance beyond just the one company that dominates our community.

AdvanStaff HR reps are always there - quick to respond to questions and are very helpful. It's a pleasure to work with such a great team!

Kelly Baker is truly a professional and a joy to work with!

The company I work for utilizes AdvanStaff HR for all of our payroll, insurance and HR needs. My most frequent contact is Susan Blaisdell who has expertly handled our payroll needs for the past 12 + years. I really appreciate all she does to assist me in processing payroll every month. Susan does a fantastic job - even when I have unusual payroll processing needs. I have on occasion needed HR advice for the Company, and Brad Hafen has been wonderful to work with - he is very prompt and helpful. I also work with Amy Beaman and Lisa Cummings regarding insurance and other benefits. They also are very prompt and helpful when I need information. I am so glad we decided to outsource payroll, insurance and HR - it has made my accounting job at my company much easier! I highly recommend AdvanStaff HR.

I have loved working with Kylie! She has been very easy to get ahold of and quick to answer any questions that I have

Advanstaff has provided consistently excellent service for all of my company's HR needs. Coby Smith, in particular, has proven to be a trusted asset to our company. It is significant peace of mind knowing that whenever a situation arises or a question needs to be answered, Coby and the rest of the Advanstaff team are always there to help.

Started up my medical practice. Wonderful to work with. Takes all the complexity of HR off my plate.

Advanstaff has been our PEO/HR service provider for several years now. They have helped keep me focused, on track, and out of trouble through this time. They operate as a TEAM and are very customer focused. For a long time I would always email Susan B with a question. More often than not, she was not the best person to handle my issue, but she always passed on my question to the right person which was then addressed quickly and professionally. I now understand my "team" at Advanstaff and go to the proper person the first time, but the concept of "team" within Advanstaff has served me well. Get to know them. They want to be your successful partner in business.

Absolutely loved working with this company! Ariana was an absolute pleasure to work with and was super patient and answered any questions I had. She was super knowledgeable from beginning to end and definitely embodied what excellent customer service should look like!

Ariana P & Jennifer E have been my go-to girls at Advanstaff for 4 years now. They are extremely professional with every situation I throw at them and are quick, thorough, and efficient in everything they do! I highly recommend the HR services of Advanstaff, especially these two ladies!

AdvanStaff, and in particular, Jennifer E are AMAZING. They always go the extra mile to assist me with any and all payroll and HR needs that I have. They are all very friendly, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with!

Michelle Discuillo, gets my vote of approval, always available, answers any questions, very knowledgeable, easy to do business with, very helpful. BryarWood Inc

I have worked directly with Advanstaff for over two years. They have always been accommodating to any request that I have and have always taken the time to walk me through any problem I may run into. Maria Ayla-Graves, our Payroll Administrator, is easy to work with and always responds promptly to any question that arises. I love working with her and the rest of the Advanstaff team and would recommend them to any and all employers.

Everyone is helpful, knowledgeable, and quick to respond. Having Advanstaff on board has made my work week better.

Susan B. at Advanstaff HR is truly a pleasure to work with! Not only is she extremely knowledgeable and technically competent, but she is also very accessible and always willing to go the extra mile to help guide you through any situation arises in a TIMELY fashion. She is definitely the best! Please note that this star rating is for Susan not the company as a whole.

Maria has been amazing to work with since she took over our account unexpectedly. She is always prompt at returning my emails and calls and goes over and beyond to assist with our payroll needs. She is such a pleasure to work with.

I operate a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business and have worked with Advanstaff HR since 2018. Advanstaff HR has fulfilled all of my company's needs with exceptional skill and dedication. I could not run my company without their daily attention to detail. Susan, my Advanstaff Payroll Administrator, is incredible! We work hand-in-hand to insure my payrolls are 100% on time! Susan has been a blessing in disguise! She genuinely cares about the smooth operation and success of my business and is critical to the operation of my business. A special thank you to the entire staff of Advanstaff HR for coming along side me in to help run my small business! And a special THANK YOU to Susan for EVERYTHING you do! Phil Taber CEO Nighthawk Integrated Solutions LLC

As someone who runs small businesses in a very fast pace, ever-changing industry, I rely heavily on Advanstaff for guidance and direction. Coby, Maria, and Michelle (among many others) are ALWAYS available and go above and beyond to ensure my difficult job is made easier. Their collective talent and experience is second to none! HIGHLY recommend to all businesses, no matter how big or small of an operation one may have.

I have worked with Advanstaff for the last 3 years and have been incredibly pleased with the overall service. As a small business owner, I need lots of guidance and support and the team at Advanstaff continually goes the extra mile to ensure my needs are met, especially people like Brad Hafen and Susan Blaisdell.

I am 100% positive that my business would crumble if it was not for Susan B and all of the wonderful associates at Advanstaff. Building our business for over twenty years has not been easy and knowing that she’s a phone call away has put my mind at ease more times than I can count. The staff there truly cares and I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

We have used Advanstaff for years and they have always been responsive to any questions or concerns we have. Nate Broadhead , Brad Hafen and their staff are the BEST!

I've worked with Mickey and Kelly for years and they have been outstanding to work with. Advanstaff runs like a well oiled machine and Mickey and Kelly are top-of-the-line, quality people. It's easy to see why Advanstaff is such a great company with employees with character like Mickey and Kelly.
