Payroll Team Lead

Great experience in a fun and collaborative environment.


Payroll Team Lead

For the last 20 years, PEO Canada has been providing customized employer services to a wide variety of businesses, providing both our clients and their Canadian employees with exceptional payroll, group benefits, retirement savings, human resources, and workers’ compensation services. We are always growing and strive to be the very best partner for our clients.

An open concept office, a welcoming team, great benefits, and regular in-office team building events are hallmarks of our company culture. We take customer service seriously and know that our teammates are just as important as our clients. We like asking and answering questions, and bringing fun to our conversation and activities. Our management team supports and encourages those who are eager to learn and improve, and have fostered an environment of open communication for our employees.  We believe in maintaining a strong work/life balance so that we have the resources and energy we need both at work and in our daily lives.

Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) are the most effective way for small and mid-sized companies to outsource employer services such as human resources, employee benefits, payroll and workers’ compensation administration.  By contracting out their business’ HR and personnel functions to PEOs, clients can focus more on their company’s growth, strategic direction, and “big picture” planning.
