“Throughout my career in Human Resources and People Operations, I’ve had the opportunity to implement a PEO three times. The third time this past summer/fall, I had the absolute pleasure of working with Onward Advisors. It has truly been a life-changing experience for my department and the entire organization.
Anyone considering implementing a PEO knows how big a commitment it is and how daunting of a task it is to pick the right PEO out of hundreds of options nationwide. There are many intricacies and differences within the PEO market, but Onward Advisors made it so clear and easy for us to vet and find the right fit for our organization. They were extremely knowledgeable, detailed, responsive, and made the selection and vetting process easy and seamless for us.
Onward has a great tool for running an analysis for the client, so we saw all of our PEO options and costs laid out clearly in a presentation, making it simple for us to compare options. They have been part of our implementation process as well, following up with us regularly and stepping in every time we needed extra help and information.
We wholeheartedly recommend Onward Advisors after seeing their process and with their expertise and support it is truly night and day.
We are so grateful for the amazing service, and we couldn’t be happier with the PEO we chose and implemented.”
“Working with Onward Advisors to renegotiate terms with our PEO exceeded all our expectations. Their team of PEO experts was professional, detailed, and thorough. Our cost savings were significant—between 21% and 30%. I would recommend them to anyone looking to better understand their PEO relationship and contracts.”

Chief Operating Operator,

“We hired Onward Advisors to consult with us on choosing a PEO for our growing business. Their approach made us confident in our choice as they were professional, detail-oriented, analytical, responsive, and their extremely thorough analysis helped us narrow down our many choices. We were expecting to save money overall by using a PEO, and Onward Advisors helped us meet those expectations. While we didn’t initially have any reservations in using a PEO, our lack of knowledge in the industry and the process by which we would obtain quotes was a challenge. Fortunately, we were able to rely on Onward Advisors’ expertise and experience, and their guidance exceeded our expectations in helping us to find the best fit for our business goals and company culture. We would recommend anyone going through this course to hire Onward Advisors.”
“We worked with Onward Advisors to help us navigate through all the available PEOs to find the one that best met our objectives. Their industry experience gave us clarity and confidence in our decision, in addition to the almost 30% in cost savings they helped us to achieve through expert negotiations.”

COO & VP of Finance,
“We worked with Onward Advisors to help us navigate through all the available PEOs to find the one that best met our objectives. We came into the process with many options and were unsure if any of them would be beneficial to us. Their industry experience gave us clarity and confidence in our decision, in addition to the almost 30% in cost savings they helped us to achieve through expert negotiations. The team is true to their word, which isn’t too common these days. I’d recommend their responsive, thorough, and persistent team to anyone looking to better understand if PEO is right for their business.”
“The Subject Matter Experts at Onward Advisors helped us renegotiate terms with our existing PEO. Their professional, detailed response provided our finance team with a thorough and easy to understand report that led to us saving over 30%—exceeding all our expectations.”

Senior Director of Finance
“I joined a Pittsburgh tech startup in early 2019 as their finance lead but quickly realized there were gaps to fill on the HR, payroll, benefits and compliance side of the business. I worked in a startup previously that had a PEO and didn’t realize the seamless power behind its capabilities until it was something I no longer had. It was painful being at a small company working with multiple vendors for HR, benefits, payroll, tax compliance, etc. We rarely received the customer support and guidance we needed and struggled to offer our employees a great experience with their benefits.
I began researching PEOs and found it overwhelming, so when I was introduced to Onward Advisors it was a sigh of relief. Their team reassured us they could find the best fit for our size and location. We worked closely with them, provided info on our current benefits programs, and they generated a very comprehensive and robust analysis around the top 5 PEO choices for a very reasonable cost. They held our hand through the entire selection process — through all questions and explanations on benefits plans to demos of the products to brainstorming sessions on how the PEO would work best for my team.
As a former New Yorker, I enjoyed Onward Advisors’ honesty, confidence, and fast pace to get us to a January 1st implementation. They was quick to respond to all questions or meetings we requested which made my team all the more confident in our final choice. Even after we made our PEO selection, they continue to check-in to make sure things are running smoothly. With a PEO market that is highly saturated, utilizing Onward Advisors as a PEO consultant to find the best fit at the best cost is a no brainer.”
“Working with Onward Advisors gave us the ability to evaluate multiple PEOs based on our specific criteria. Their approach was very insightful, and their transparent analysis highlighted costs we were unaware of previously.”
HR & Operations Director
“The PEO specialists at Onward Advisors helped guide us, and their depth of experience in the space alleviated all concerns. Their professional and thorough approach helped us achieve overall savings of upwards of 20% in costs, exceeding our expectations.”
VP Human Resources & Operations
“When inevitable benefits integration glitches arose, Onward Advisors continued to offer guidance and to leverage their high-level contacts within our chosen PEO partner to ensure we were fully satisfied. That’s service worthy of unhesitating recommendation.”
ZMG | Ruckus
“Through skilled negotiation, they were able to exceed our expectations by achieving savings of close to 20%. It was a refreshing experience working with Onward Advisors, and we would gladly recommend them to anyone in a similar situation.”
“In the end, we decided to use a PEO and the resulting 30%+ savings that Onward Advisors helped us achieve far exceeded our expectations. The team at Onward Advisors is professional, detailed, and true experts in their field.”
VP of People Operations
“Overall, their PEO specialists made the selection and onboarding process far easier than I had imagined. In hindsight, I can’t believe that I was anxious about this process when in fact, Onward Advisors handled the heavy lifting with great ease.”
