This whole thing began with a conversation. There were four of us, sitting around the table at our favorite Mexican restaurant, talking about the best way to support companies that wanted to be world-class, but didn’t quite have all the resources they needed...just yet.
One of us (we call him the smart one) said, “We can best support these companies by starting a PEO.” And we responded like most people respond when you mention those three letters: “What’s a PEO?” (*Hint: It stands for Professional Employer Organization...we are professionals at HR!)
That was November, 2020. We got up from the table and went to work. We talked to hundreds of people about the problems they were facing with their HR. We drank from the firehose. We set up shop in Nampa, Idaho because...well, we love Nampa, Idaho. And by June of 2021, we launched our solution-based strategy into the world and High Road PEO was born.
Since then, we’ve attracted some of the best people in the industry onto our team. We invested in cutting edge software and technology. We continually fine tune our processes because we're committed to making it easier for employers to take exceptional care of their people.
We want employers to be the heroes! That's because we've seen how quickly HR can go from meaning “human resources'' to "hectic randomness." We’ve watched countless teams get buried under the administrative weight of human resources, workers' compensation, risk management, employee benefits and payroll. At High Road PEO, we come alongside employers and help them solve problems in each of those areas every day.
We chose the name High Road because it's an image of integrity, honesty and selflessness. Those who "takes the high road" show themselves to be a class act, even during difficult times. It's about being the kind of people you want to work with; the kind you can trust and will add value to your business. We also like the name High Road because it reminds us that HR is at the center of everything we do.
