Many entrepreneurs have spent a lifetime of building, toiling, and sacrificing to get to this very moment...the transaction event.

Since football season is upon us, I hope that you do not mind if I sprinkle some sports analogies into this conversation.

For those of you that are approaching this part of the PEO lifecycle, you have likely built a business with your sheer determination, perseverance and a quality team around you that has shared your mission and vision. But now that you are considering a transaction, you should consider this the “red zone”. There is a tremendous amount of work that needs to be completed before you should enter the red zone. This part of your planning process, if done well, you will increase the multiple and your “pay day” to cap off a storied career.

Cultivating a thriving work culture and employee engagement are two leading issues that businesses around the globe face today. No matter the industry, size or geography, the influence of corporate culture (or the nonexistence of one) has a powerful impact on the engagement and productivity of your employees.

Prior to joining the McHenry team, I worked for a Global HR Consulting firm and met with companies on a regular basis that were experiencing the signs of a disengaged work culture including retaining top talent, lack of transparency & innovation, and struggling to integrate a multi-generational workforce. These signs are no longer topics brought up by HR, they are now considered critical business issues to organizations around the world.

As the summer months prove to be busier than ever for executives, we decided that for our June/July edition of the McHenry Advisor we would give PEO executives a break and instead bother one of our very own executives. Matt Claus is a Principal of Claus Advisory Group, and Practice Leader for McHenry Consulting’s Mergers and Acquisitions Division.

In all fairness, I kind of cornered Matt last minute to participate, and he couldn’t really decline; he rarely says no or that he is too busy. He is the kind of guy that always looks at things positively and is ready to jump into any project.

The Future of the PEO Industry

Bill Clinton once said, “the price of doing the same old thing is far higher than the price of change.” The time for change is now, and this sentiment is the basis for our conversation today.

More than three months ago, in early April 2017, the NAPEO Board met in Denver to hold its annual strategic planning meeting. The strategic session was moderated by a local professional that led us through our strategic exercise. Although my intent is not to immerse you in all the discussions, I do want to focus on one of the sessions near the end of the two-day event that was related to the future of the PEO industry and NAPEO’s ongoing role.

The Dog Days of Summer, Again

The dog days of summer have arrived, and with long days and short nights, businesses, like the rest of us, begin to take things at a leisurely pace. Family vacations and time away from work peak during this time of year, and if you live in Florida like me, just getting from the car to the office in this heat is an effort worthy of a break.

PEO’s do not necessarily experience a “slow season" per se, in fact, I believe our PEO employees are prepping for annual enrollment, arguably one of the peak seasons for a PEO. Regardless of the industry, most experience the effects of a summer slowdown. Staff seems to rotate in and out as vacations are scheduled. Executives leaving town can sometimes force strategic initiatives into a lazy lull.
