What Is A Professional Employer Organization (PEO)?

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is an outsourced human resources services provider that allows you to manage your day-to-day business while giving your employees access to benefits and professional HR expertise.

Acadia HR’s PEO is not a temporary staffing service or contract staff provider. We also don’t manage your staff or get in your way. Our PEO is an end-to-end portfolio of business process solutions that are customized to your company’s needs.

While some professional employer organizations make you feel like a number, Acadia HR offers a higher level of personalized service to give you the quality and convenience you deserve. We’re there when you need us most.

Service Dogs at Work

Life is hard.  So is work.  Sometimes things in life go awry and those events deeply impact our ability to work.  For some people, that’s called Monday.  But for others, it’s a debilitating daily struggle that requires help.  And whether the disability is innate or acquired through a life experience or traumatic event, physical and/or…

Values and Virtues: The Ideal Team Player

“Teamwork makes the dream work,” a phrase most often credited to John C. Maxwell, an American clergyman, author, and speaker, is one of the most overused sayings in many aspects of life, but that’s only because it holds so much truth.  After all, any team comprised of truly great team players can accomplish amazing things! Businesses…

A Legacy in Flip Flops

The music world recently lost a legend and it hit me particularly hard.  Having once performed on stage with Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band, I consider myself to be one of his biggest fans – a true “Parrot Head” – Hawaiian shirt, flip-flops, and all.  In the days that followed his passing, his…

Not Management Material? Not a Problem!

During half time of a very competitive high school lacrosse game, my goalie son made an impassioned case to his team to rally in the second half.  It was not the first time he’d been so vocal, and it never went unnoticed by the fans.  In fact, during this intermission, the mother of one of…

For the Love of the Performance Review! The Supervisor’s Role

If you’ve been on either side of the desk during a performance review, you know just how dreadful the process can be. For both the supervisor and the employee, the anticipation and administrative preparation required for appraisal day can be exhausting especially when the regular day-to-day job demands don’t lighten up. Indeed, performance review season…

The Purpose in Mission and Vision Statements

An abridged version of the parable of bricklayers goes something like this: Three masons busily setting bricks to rebuild London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral were asked what they were doing. The first said, “I’m laying bricks.” The second said, “I’m building this wall so I can feed my family.” The third said proudly, “I’m building a…

The Hybrid Work Model

Even before COVID-19, employees increasingly valued flexibility in their weekly work routines.  According to a Flexjobs survey in 2019, only 16% of respondents were looking for a job that offered flexible work.  Compare that to a recent GoodHire survey of those working from home since the start of the pandemic where 74% would need some…

The Evolving Work Environment

It appears employers and employees are learning together how the post-pandemic workplace has changed and continues to evolve.  Fear of the unknown drove the country and the business world into a temporary paralysis until American grit and determination brought about innovative solutions to keep the lights on.  None of it was easy, but we have…

Dealing with Uncertainty at Work

Renowned author Stephen Covey once said, “If there’s one thing that’s certain in business, it’s uncertainty.” We live in trying times. The global pandemic, sociopolitical conflict, inflictions of oppression and war, rising inflation, the competitive labor market, the exorbitant price of necessities such as food, fuel, and clothing, etc. The list goes on. Add to…

Work Well in the New Year

America has significantly shifted the way it works since COVID-19 came into our lives.  Maintaining business operations since early 2020 has required surviving companies to be creative and implement new business approaches to accommodate mandatory social distancing, work area layouts, and virtual versus in-person co-worker and customer interaction.  Shouldering the brunt of adapting to keep…

Open Letter to a Future Employee

Whether you’re a 16 year-old high school student working your first job or a 20 year-old living at home because college was too expensive or too time consuming, you’ve probably been told by family, friends, and social media that success in employment comes with a college degree.  And statistically, they are correct.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Bachelor’s degree recipients earn 49% more than those with some college or no degree…

How’s that Dream Job Treating You?

Growing up, I certainly never yearned for a career in HR.  In fact, several years ago my then 5 year-old daughter asked what I did for work.  When I replied, “human resources,” she puzzledly asked, “What kind of race-horses are those?!”…
