Make Industry History.

Make History, or Become History.

Tomorrow belongs to the bold, agile, and digital.

It’s hard to believe that our intrepid “fledgling” industry is almost 40 years old!  A lot has changed.  The old days of peddling safe-harbor pension plans, cheap health and workers’ comp insurance, and literally “knocking on doors” to find new prospects are largely things of the past. Employee leasing is now referred to as PEO or HRO.  And we used to rely heavily on paper and telephones to provide our services.

That’s all history. 

Today, technology is king.  From processing payroll, onboarding new clients and employees, providing HR services and documents, to prospecting, and everything in between, it is all digital now.  If your service cannot be provided quickly and efficiently, you will most likely be at a competitive disadvantage.

Sales, marketing and technology.  This is what the PACE Annual Conference will be about.  Be sure to bring your sales and marketing managers to keep them on the digital forefront.

Come to where PEO senior leaders freely share their insights on what’s working and what’s not, in a fun and spirited environment, where transparency, honesty, and friendship come standard.
