The Power of Partnership

PEO, Beyond the

Comprehensive PEO solutions. Next-generation technology.


Adams Keegan provides a choice of two contractual relationships: Professional Employer Organization (PEO) and Administrative Service Organization (ASO). Both recognize where you’ve come from, and where you’re going as a business.

Choice and control are yours. Benefit from our expertise and a unique cooperative model that promotes scalability.

We're all about giving you multiple service levels and employee benefits options supported by people and technology.

PEO vs. ASO: What’s in an acronym?

PEO services are provided under the terms of a co-employment agreement. As part of the co-employment arrangement, a client company transfers administrative employer-of-record status to a PEO, enabling the client to benefit from the PEO’s state unemployment and workers compensation insurance, if needed. 

The ASO model largely mirrors PEO service, except it is delivered absent a co-employment relationship and on the client’s Tax ID. ASO clients retain their unique employer identity. Clients maintain their own workers compensation policy and state unemployment insurance, with Adams Keegan handling the administration and payments.  

The PEO relationship gives you the best of both worlds. You remain in control – receiving and providing to your workers the packages of support that you want – while we help you with payroll, state unemployment, risk management, and benefits.

Both relationships include scalable and customized levels of service, which can be changed to suit your needs.  We are very agnostic on the solution whether PEO or ASO and we will work with you to determine what is most ideal for your business model – regardless of the model you get the same high level comprehensive support tailored to your needs.

The Adams Keegan difference means:

  • Group medical and employee benefits options through multiple carriers instead of one or two medical insurance providers.
  • Several levels of service choices based on what you typically need. Because, why pay for services you don't use?
  • Employer status options allow you to choose if PEO or ASO relationships best suit your needs.
  • Direct relationships with long term dedicated payroll, benefits, and HR staff. Forget about online chats or call centers. We're here for you.

We’re ready when you are.
