As McHenry Consulting celebrates their 15th year anniversary, it had us all talking about the past 15 years to when Barry and Dan first started off. Fifteen years is a long time, considering the average marriage lasts 8 years and the Small Business Administration (SBA) reports that half of small businesses survive five or more years.

So, Congrats McHenry, not only has your union contributed to much success in the PEO industry, just your duration alone is noteworthy. So, should we acknowledge or celebrate this moment. In the wise words of my colleague, Tina Vigoa, “Hell Yea, we should.”

Executive Profile: Joe Carfagno

I was very excited when Joe Carfagno of CLEAR Employer Services agreed to be our executive for this month’s profile. An industry veteran, being part of PEO and payroll for the totality of his professional career, he is the proud founder of CLEAR Employer Services. It's a company he describes as being finely-tuned to provide small businesses with speed and quality.

Carfagno has a passion for the industry and truly believes it is the best tool a small business can leverage to take them to the next level. Clear Employer Services has a customer centric model offering a full suite of services and a partnership approach based on the needs of their clients. Carfagno may be most passionate when speaking about his family and two daughters or his beloved Cowboys, but it is a close second when he speaks about PEO and the team at CLEAR.

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.

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.

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.
