India Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Increasing demand for PEOs software due to work from home environment

COVID-19 disrupted the business model of most companies, and many of them had to opt to work from home to safeguard their employees and to check the spread of the virus. As a result of the prolonged lockdown caused by the second wave of COVID-19, many companies have considered leveraging PEOs. For instance, PepsiCo stated that the company witnessed rising employee productivity by 15% after the flexible working environment, and it reduced absenteeism by 31%, and reduced employee turnover between 10% and 15%. Additionally, many big corporations are choosing the work-from-home trend or offering flexible work time schedules, which adds to the demand for professional employer organizations for better management of the employees, their benefits, compensations, and other HR-related works, which has been positively contributing to the growth of the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market.

Rising demand for enhancing cost savings

Several small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) opted for PEOs as a means for handling employee payrolls, paying employees, finding human resources, and other related activities. This not only helped SMEs survive but also helped them in saving money. A PEO can handle a multitude of duties on behalf of employers, in addition to saving both time and money. PEOs benefit small and medium-sized organizations that may lack the resources, experience, or systems to manage payroll, HR Information System (HRIS), and other HR management responsibilities. Aside from saving the firm money, compliance-related hazards are identified and avoided ahead of time. Such high-cost savings and a great return on investment are driving the growth of the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market.

 

Restraints

 Loss of control over employees by leveraging PEOs

One of the most difficult aspects of owning a business is giving up a portion of the control. Employers who use PEOs lose the option of choosing which vendors they want to work with, such as health insurers and workers' compensation companies. It is the owners who bear the consequences of an unsuitable provider even though they are not actively involved in the selection process.

Usually, the PEO is the one who holds all the information regarding the hiring of employees. PEOs also have access to all documents submitted by employees. Thus, a PEO holds more power and authority over an employee in comparison to the actual employer, and this may prove to be a threat to the PEO market. As the PEO collaborates with the company in hiring and retaining employees, it is responsible for handling the majority of employment issues, such as payroll and workers' compensation. Thus, in most cases, the company loses control over its employees and this lack of control may prove to be a major restraint hindering the growth of the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market.

 

Impact of COVID-19 on India Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs)Market

As soon as the COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market had to adapt to the changing trends. When the virus spread, cases increased, and measures to control the spread of the virus got tougher. COVID-19 disproportionately affected developing countries and inducing the employees to stay at home instead of working from office. India's PEO market remained steady during the pandemic. Companies and SMEs, who employed PEO services were able to effectively minimize the effects of the uncertainty caused by the pandemic. The size of SMEs remained almost similar to the size in 2019; however, companies were able to perform better than the companies, who do not employ PEO services. PEOs helped companies handle the situation efficiently without laying off employees and pay employees' salaries due to savings from the employment of PEO services.
