Engage PEO Forms Mid-Market Division

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – April 20, 2015 – Engage PEO, a leading professional employer organization providing HR outsourcing solutions to small and mid-sized businesses across the U.S., today announced the formation of a new division dedicated to serve the needs of employers with more than 500 employees. The Mid-Market division was created in response to the growing demand from larger employers for HR solutions that can deliver a competitive advantage. The group will service both existing Engage clients and new client prospects.

“Businesses are always looking for ways to sharpen their competitive edge and in the middle market, a company’s human resources strategy can be a compelling source of sustaining competitive advantage,” says Jay Starkman, CEO of Engage. “Our Mid-Market division is focused on working with clients with more than 500 employees and creating solutions that fully leverage their human capital.”

The new division will be comprised of senior Engage service delivery specialists across disciplines with significant experience managing the needs of larger employers. The team will work closely with mid-market clients to deliver products tailored to the specific needs of the business, with customized service models that are flexible and provide consistently reliable client service.

“Our mid-market clients are asking for more and more help to manage their complex HR needs and Engage continues to deliver positive results,” said Ralph Labarta, chief technology officer of Engage. “This includes building strategies that achieve greater operational effectiveness by reducing the amount of time and resources spent on employment administration and HR compliance, improving workplace safety metrics, providing a full suite of Fortune 500 benefits, and developing programs to recruit, train and retain highly skilled employees.” 

Engage’s unique service model is anchored by a team of dedicated HR managers who are all employment lawyers and maintain significant knowledge of HR issues and emerging legal trends that impact businesses of all sizes. Engage already boasts one of the highest average client sizes in the PEO industry and has a proven track record of serving these large employers. The company expects their mid-market client roster will continue to grow and benefit from Engage’s focused approach to clients in this segment.
