St. Petersburg, FL – March 19, 2012 – Engage PEO, a leading professional employer organization providing HR outsourcing solutions to small and mid-sized businesses, today announced that its sales growth for the fourth quarter of 2011 exceeded goals by 200 percent. With hundreds of worksite employees already experiencing Engage’s “Expect More” benefits and service philosophy, the company continues to grow with a focus on its unique insurance broker partnership model to offer comprehensive HR solutions to small and mid-sized businesses nationally.
“Our record growth in this short timeframe shows that business owners and HR managers are looking to offer high-quality HR services to their employees and want a partner that can deliver expertise, personalized attention and cost efficiency at the same time,” said Jay Starkman, Engage’s chief executive officer. “We’re proud of Engage’s early success and we’ve only just begun. We look forward to continued growth as we work with our clients and broker partners to offer complete solutions that sharpen their competitive advantage.”
Engage PEO launched in December 2011 as the brainchild of Starkman, together with veteran human resource industry executive, Marjorie “Midge” Seltzer, who serves as the company’s president. Within weeks, the company announced it had become the first PEO start-up in history to receive accreditation through the Employer Services Assurance Corporation (ESAC) and had contracted with a large Five Guys franchisee to provide full human resource outsourcing to 300 employees at 13 locations in New York and Florida.
