"This empowers business owners to scale their operations efficiently and offer valuable employee benefits without being burdened by HR administrative tasks that get in the way of focusing on their core competencies and business growth."

Lehtio said, "The synergies this acquisition creates will allow the employEZ family of PEOs to bring Florida-based, highly competitive health insurance plans to Florida businesses, while significantly bolstering the access and range of PEO services available to clients of Midtown HR, including a robust retirement savings plan and access to insurance coverage in almost every U.S. state."

Under the terms of the acquisition, Midtown HR's team joins employEZ, bringing their wealth of knowledge and experience to the company and ensuring a smooth transition and seamless continuity of services for existing Midtown HR clients.
