What sets UAP apart from other PEOs?

The philosophy of UAP is that if you treat your employees well, they will treat your clients well.  This philosophy explains why over half of UAP’s staff has been dedicated to our clients and the success of their businesses for over a decade.  Many of our employees date back to UAP’s inception over 19 years ago. Our philosophy is also the reason that we still remain partners with some of our very first clients.

UAP is the only professional employer organization with an exclusive relationship with Gold Star Law, the leading employment law firm in Michigan. As a client of UAP, you have free access to legal advice from their attorneys regarding any type of employment-related issue.

In addition to expert legal advice, UAP includes a zero deductible, $1 million Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) policy, which is highly unusual in the PEO industry.  EPLI protects against claims of harassment, discrimination, and wrongful termination. UAP clients who follow our advice are covered in the event of an employment lawsuit.  This comprehensive package means that there is no EPLI premium, no deductible, no attorneys’ fees, and no money out of pocket for settlements.  The benefit associated with this coverage could equate to tens of thousands of dollars in savings for a single claim.

UAP’s IT team is unparalleled. Industry experts have even turned to UAP for our advice and expertise on building custom reports, building integrations from time keeping systems to the payroll system, and building integrations from the payroll system to clients’ accounting systems. No other PEO utilizes an ISO 9001 Quality Management System to ensure perfect payroll every time.

UAP understands that when you have a question, you need it answered as quickly as possible. You will never reach a call center when you contact UAP. Every time you call, you will speak to a live person that will be able to help you.

Need assistance communicating with your non-English-speaking employees?  UAP can help you with translation as well.  Our multilingual staff can translate questions and answers for you, and even create customized forms in various languages to simplify the employment process and build long-lasting relationships with your employees.

Unlike other PEOs, UAP has no dedicated sales department.  All of the money those other PEOs put into telemarketing and sales, we put into our service and support division to provide you with the very best customer service. If you are meeting with a UAP representative for the first time, you are speaking to someone with first-hand knowledge of our practices, not someone who has just been trained to speak about all the services we provide.  Each UAP representative has personally processed payroll, handled a workers’ compensation claim, assisted with human resource functions, or provided some other type of service to our clients.  Having first-hand experience provides UAP’s staff with in-depth knowledge to answer questions and an understanding of our program.  It is no wonder that almost all new UAP clients are referred by existing clients.

For companies already with another PEO, the number one reason to consider switching to UAP is value.  We simply provide the best service for the money.  In about 90% of cases, we can significantly lower costs for clients transitioning from other PEOs. We provide superior and additional services that other PEOs can’t or won’t take the time to do.  What does it cost you to take a look at UAP?
