At Genesis HR, we are dedicated to simplifying the human resource issues and challenges that come with running a small-to-midsize business. We help your entire team—everyone from the business owner, to the HR manager, to individual employees—make their lives easier by partnering with them as a PEO. That means we work to get you on track with all aspects of HR, including compliance, liability, financial predictability, and benefits administration.
If you’ve checked out the Genesis blog and wonder if a PEO partnership might be a good choice for your business, a free consultation is a great way to decide.
During the call, we’ll:
- Learn about your company and your current HR practices.
- Identify your company’s HR challenges.
- Share the Genesis service model and information about partnering with a PEO.
Following this conversation, we’ll know the next steps to continue the dialog—gather info to prepare a quote for a partnership with us. After that, we prefer to present the quote in person—after all, we’re in the people business, and we want to meet you!
Just fill out the form to the right to set up your discovery call today.

Managing human resources for your small business can be complicated and time-consuming. If you’re a small business owner, or a finance or HR manager, we suggest checking out our Genesis HR website. It is chock-full of helpful resources, HR templates, and actionable blog posts for your small business—and everyone from the owner, to the HR manager, to the vice president of finance will find valuable information. Even if you’re not working with us, you can still take advantage of our expertise through our weekly PEO blog that addresses common HR questions and pain points; our social presence on Twitter and LinkedIn; and free resources like templates and guides.
One of my top, must-read HR websites belongs to the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM). The SHRM blog is updated frequently with topical, important articles for anyone involved in the HR world. There are templates and forms available across the site, and the resources section is updated often; there are also links to helpful HR events. The only drawback of the site is that some information is behind a paywall. Still, I would recommend a subscription to the SHRM website—the tools for managers and even small business owners are worth the expense.
Massachusetts Department of Family and Medical Leave
As of January 1, 2021, Massachusetts has enacted Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML); PFML provides temporary income replacement to eligible workers who are welcoming a new child into their family, are struck by a serious illness or injury, need to take care of an ill or ailing relative, and for certain military considerations.
The Department of Family and Medical Leave, which oversees the Commonwealth’s Paid Family and Medical Leave (PFML) program, has a thorough website that helps answer employers’ and employees’ questions about the program as well as provides additional resources and contact information.
The website covers the following information:
- What is paid family and medical leave?
- Who can apply?
- How can I apply for paid leave Massachusetts benefits?
- What will I need to get started?
It is a must-read resource for Commonwealth employers and employees with questions about this new program.
According to their website, HR Dive “provides in-depth journalism and insight into the most impactful current events, news, and trends shaping human resources.” This includes newsletters and articles focusing on talent acquisition, learning and development, diversity and inclusion, compensation, benefits, onboarding, and more—for HR professionals, it’s a worthwhile resource.
HR.com is a must-visit hub of information for those in the HR world—according to the site, human resource professionals can “rely on the HR.com community as the foremost, trusted resource for education, career development, networking, and compliance.”
Membership to the site is free, and boasts the following resources:
- The largest network of HR executives
- Leading-edge industry research from the HR Research Institute

- HR education, including 250+ annual webcasts
- HR certification exam prep that guarantees passing SHRM and HRCI certification
- Legal compliance updates.
U.S. Department of Labor
The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) website is one of my personal favorites—and most visited websites. This government website is the gold-standard for labor-related questions, news, updates, etc.—it offers up-to-date information and resources to help both employers and their employees. One downside: the site can be difficult to navigate—after all, it’s loaded with a ton of information with federal regulations. In addition to the U.S. DOL website, I also recommend individual states’ websites; at minimum, however, you should know what’s required by federal law (and the DOL site can help you with that).
National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO)
Known as “The Voice of the PEO Industry,” The National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO) is the preeminent organization for PEOs, of which Genesis HR Solutions is one. NAPEO has an incredible, robust website with tons of information for businesses curious about what a PEO is and does as well as resources for PEOs and their partner companies.
Additionally, the NAPEO site offers a “PEO Search” tool, so you can look up if the company you’re interested in working with is accredited by the IRS as a CPEO, has an in-state headquarters, is audited by an independent CPA, and is Employer Services Assurance Corporation (ESAC) accredited (as you can see below, as the largest and oldest accredited PEO headquartered in New England, Genesis HR checks all of those boxes!)
TLNT is one of the fastest-growing websites in the HR space, and is focused on HR insights, engagement, and culture. There are new, expertly written blog articles published every day in these categories, as well as training opportunities like webinars, seminars, and conferences across the U.S. and online. TLNT also shares highlights from the “best-of-the-rest” HR blogs, making this a one-stop shop for all things talent-related.
The HR Bartender, Sharlyn Lauby, is an HR professional who strives for her website to offer a listening ear, solicited advice, and encouragement for topics that relate to the workplace. The HR Bartender website is practical and casual, as she notes in her bio, and also fun to read. Her blog articles are thorough and useful to anyone in a workplace, but especially to those in the HR realm. The HR Bartender’s tweets are also funny and insightful, so follow her on Twitter as well.
The people behind TalentCulture bill it as a ”metaphor for the social workplace, where participants share ideas and offer peer support through engaging digital forums, dynamic interest groups, and empowering blog content.” The HR website and its Twitter account both have a huge following—the popular TalentCulture #WorkTrends Twitter Chat and #WorkTrends Podcast are both resources we at Genesis have participated in and learned from. We also think the blogs, guides, and learning opportunities offered here for HR folks are worth investigating.
