Managed hr & payroll support

The Employee Management Team, or EMT for short, is a PEO, a Professional Employer Organization, dedicated to helping employers by relieving the hard work of the human resources component of a business, and doing it right for them.

Why emt…

So you can do the work you want to be doing. Most of us got into our business out of passion for a type of work, idea, or opportunity and then find ourselves doing far less of what we love and a lot more of what we don’t – hiring, firing, insurance, worker’s comp and unemployment claims, employee benefits, payroll taxes and more. And now, to make running and owning a business a lot more complicated, there is the myriad of pending health care reform issues. It is a small miracle you actually get any “real work” done. This is where the Employee Management Team comes in. The Employee Management Team is your PEO solution for the entire Sarasota area, including Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Venice, Palmetto and Manatee.

HR aficionados are often familiar with the PEO concept, of which EMT is one. As a licensed PEO, we enter into a co-employment relationship with you and your employees that allows us to handle all of the administrative tasks, while you focus on what you do best, growing your business.

This is how EMT differs from other PEOs – we can effectively translate industry jargon into real business speak and clearly explain the relevant points and financial impact on your business.
