When Alpha Space Test and Research Alliance moved from its parent company to establish an independent corporation, it faced many HR challenges. As a new start-up, Alpha Space Test and Research Alliance wanted to offer its employees generous benefits and medical insurance while staying compliant with all relevant HR laws and regulations.
Without its parent company's HR support, Alpha Space Test and Research Alliance tasked its Business Manager, Ms. Jacque Malota, to handle all employer-employee relationship challenges. Ms. Malota's background in Finance and a busy schedule left her overwhelmed with HR issues. This led to the decision to outsource HR with a Professional Employment Organization (PEO). Questco's experience and reputation topped other PEO bids, and the company was selected to work with Ms. Malota and her team.

As a result, start-ups tend to have high turnover rates and employee dissatisfaction.
These issues, coupled with inexperience in hiring the right resources, pose many risks to enterprises during their nascent stages. Regulatory compliance and management of employees and human capital concerns cannot be done without HR experts.
Even though financial constraints and slow growth may not permit having an in-house expert, PEOs like Questco can address upcoming companies' human capital needs. Like Alpha Space Test and Research Alliance Test and Research Alliance, start-ups can benefit from outsourcing HR solutions from PEOs.
