Hire a PEO! Sounds simple, but here is a good article that outlines how PEO’s are able to keep rates low for their clientele.
“Instead of doing your own payroll in-house, consider a PEO (Professional Employer Organization) to take over the administrative and legal responsibilities of managing your employees.

Look to a professional employer organization to help you save money.”
