Barrett Business Services, Inc. provides business management solutions for small and mid-sized companies. Services The company has two categories of services, professional employer services (PEO) and staffing. PEO The company enters into a client services agreement to establish a co-employment relationship with each client company, assuming responsibility for payroll, payroll taxes, workers’ compensation coverage and certain other administrative functions for the client’s existing workforce. The client maintains physical care, custody and control of their workforce, including the authority to hire and terminate employees. During 2015, the company supported approximately 4,100 PEO clients. Staffing and Recruiting The company’s staffing services include on-demand or short-term staffing assignments, contract staffing, long-term or indefinite-term on-site management, and direct placement. The company’s recruiting experts maintain a network of professionals from which the company sources candidates. Through an assessment process, the company gains an understanding of the short-and long-term needs of its clients, allowing the company to identify and source the right talent for each position. The company then conducts a rigorous screening process to help ensure a hire. Clients The company has client services agreements with a range of customers, including electronics manufacturers, various light-manufacturing industries, agriculture-based companies, transportation and shipping enterprises, food processors, telecommunications companies, public utilities, general contractors in various construction-related fields, and professional services firms. Business Strategy The company’s business strategy is to align local operations teams with the mission of small and mid-sized business owners, driving value to their business. To do so, the company partners with business owners to leverage their investment in human capital through a high-touch, results-oriented approach; brings predictability to each client organization through a three-tiered management platform; and enables business owners to focus on their core business by reducing organizational complexity and improving productivity.
