About Us

Employer’s Choice Solutions was established in 2000 in Port Charlotte, Florida as one of the first Professional Employer Organization (PEO) brokerage firms in the country. It was founded by Joni Prose, who has over 20 years’ experience dealing with Workers Compensation, Health Insurance, Payroll Processing, Health Benefits, and other services associated with Human Resources and PEOs.

"Being both professional and personable means a lot to our business model. Taking extra steps regarding respecting a business owner’s time and privacy is key in today’s day and age.

I saw a huge need in our industry to assist the business owner and I would almost go so far and say relieving the business owner of the decision process in comparing several collected quotes from various PEOs. Having several options available AND having a professional explain the differences in a fast and simplistic fashion seemed like the logical thing that needed to happen.

Creating an atmosphere which is time saving and enjoyable always was and still is the key goal with each and every one of our clients.” J. Prose, President

What we bring to the table …

imageUnlike other PEO brokerage firms, Employer’s Choice truly offers concierge-level service. We spend time with our key contacts to ascertain a goal in mind and put together a strategy plan for the best optimal outcome. By having a professional who is objective in the process, we can help you, our client, arrive at conclusions you may have not normally come to. In some cases, we are able to show you business models and proposals that have your Suta or Workman’s Compensation rates in place or show scenarios of picking up a PEO’s rates, for instance. Overall, we’re here to help you make the most-informed decisions on behalf of your business, including Worker’s Compensation, Payroll Administration, Health Benefits, Retirement Plans, and more.

We only release information to qualified PEO’s who would have our client’s best interest regarding our client’s price point and product line objectives. Again, in today’s day and age, privacy is key as to whom we release information to and we never release information to a PEO without first informing the client whom will be obtaining their information.

Sometimes a business owner likes to obtain quotes on their own and we welcome that approach if you’d like to retain some control as to whom you have in the mix.

When a price point or product point is arrived at and you're leaning towards a particular PEO, we can also assist and help regarding a PEO’s particular procedures and payment methods compared to other contenders in the mix.

We assist you in the sign-up process to achieve the least amount of disruption to the flow of your business. After the initial sign-up process is completed, we check in with you quarterly or as often as you would like to ensure you’re happy with your PEO.

Satisfied Clients

You are such a joy to work with and I know the importance of that having someone on my side with discernment, intelligence, capacity for genuine caring, being capable, accountable; not to mention working hard and always protecting the customer or potential customer.  This is so important and not often found in this industry or really any industry.  You have a gift with providing your customers with tremendous security and we sure have figured out what happens when you have the opposite of this and simply put-it is tragic at best.
