3 ways Australia PEO can help your non-profit organisation
As the main figurehead behind a not for profit organisation, your mission motivates everything you do and how you achieve it. Everything that doesn’t contribute to the end cause is a distraction. But just because your business isn’t run to turn a profit, it doesn’t mean you no longer have to maintain mundane business tasks like payroll, compliance and visa management to keep the cogs turning. For this reason, many non-profit organisations employ the help of a PEO (Professional Employment Organisation) to free up time to do the things that matter the most.
Here are three common challenges non-profit organisations face and how PEOs can help alleviate them:
1. Lack of skilled HR professionals in the non-profit industry
In the experience of Australia PEO, we find there to be a lack of experienced HR professionals in the non-profit industry as companies tend to not onboard a full-time HR expert due to lack of task requirements. This style of operation leaves many of the HR tasks to other people in the organisation, taking them away from achieving goals that contribute to the mission at hand. The fact is, these tasks are inescapable and need to be met, so outsourcing them to Australia PEO can be invaluable.
2. Minimal budgets
Limited budgets are unsurprisingly typical of a non-profit organisation. On their own, these organisations might have trouble finding the most valuable and cost-effective plans that provide a level of cover most suitable to their style of operation. A smaller non-profit may not be able to benefit from the same plans at a discounted cost like larger organisations. A PEO can have better access to a wide range of plans due to having a larger pool of employees in their combined management portfolio.
3. The complexity of liability issues
A very common issue we hear from non-profit organisations is that their higher-level executives don’t have the knowledge and expertise to understand liability issues in HR. Limited experience in non-profit organisations means many also don’t know how to handle compliance related to employees.
Compliance is a very important part of non-profit organisations and can cost them a lot of money if one isn’t abiding by the rules. One wrong move and a non-profit organisation can lose the funding they need to keep the business running.
How A PEO Helps Your Nonprofit Overcome Those Challenges
Luckily, Australia PEO services provide non-profit organisations with expertise in dealing with budget, liability, compliance, visa management and any other challenge they face in day to day business.
Here are three ways partnering with a PEO helps your non-profit:
1. You get expert advice on compliance issues
When you partner with a PEO organisation like Australia PEO, we offer the skills and experience harnessed from decades of experience in HR so you don’t have to get your head around complicated regulations on your own. Australia PEO knows the impact losing a chunk of funding can have on the success of a non-profit organisation. If you’re relying solely on grants, your application for funding must demonstrate that your intentions are real and that you meet all state and federal requirements for a company of your size.
Unfortunately, some non-profit organisations don’t have the knowledge to handle compliance issues on their own and supplying incorrect answers to these questions can potentially have disastrous effects on your eligibility for funding. Partnering with Australia PEO means you have access to the resources that will help you meet all compliance challenges. When it comes to the ever-changing legal and regulatory landscape, we’ll always be on top of developments and changes, providing you with the peace of mind that your people are always employed in compliance with the relevant local rules and regulations.
2. You can devote more time to your cause
With the help of Australia PEO, you’ll free up more time to spend on the things that matter most to your cause. You’ll have peace of mind when you entrust your HR tasks to Australia PEO; we’re fully accredited and licensed so we take compliance very seriously. We’re often undergoing audits to keep us in check and good standing.
3. You maintain control of your organization
Many companies, including non-profit organisations, fear they will lose control over their organisation when they partner with a PEO but this is not the case. When entering into an agreement with Australia PEO services, both parties have a list of tasks agreed upon and shared. This means that Australia PEO will also take on some of the administrative burden and liability of being a co-employer of your organisation.
Finally, choosing Australia PEO services as your partner in employment means you get a relationships-focused team that get the job done efficiently and under budget. We value community and the work, love and passion that goes into making non-profit organisations thrive. Our desire to make a difference in the working lives of our clients transcends into the vision and mission of a non-profit organisation.
