Southwest, Florida – Administrative Concepts, a Southwest Florida based Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is pleased to announce a significant expansion of its payroll and risk management services with a new outreach targeted towards Florida’s agriculture industry.
Administrative Concepts has formed a joint venture with McKenzie & Sons, Inc., a third-generation citrus harvester headquartered in Frostproof, Florida, to develop the program. Owner Richard McKenzie has brought decades of experience to consult with Administrative Concepts and help tailor PEO services directed to the specific needs of all segments of the agriculture industry, from small family-owned farms to large conglomerations.
Agriculture is Florida’s second largest industry with an estimated payroll of $80 to $100 million, making it a natural fit for Administrative Concepts’ innovative brand of comprehensive payroll and risk management services.
“The beauty of Administrative Concepts is that we allow our clients to focus on their core business without the distractions of paperwork and red tape,” said co-founder George Bushong. “Too many business owners spend way too much time worrying about administrative details and wind up getting frustrated and stressed out. We relieve that burden and allow our clients, such as citrus growers, to devote their energies towards growing their business, which in this case, is oranges and grapefruit.”
Administrative Concepts has opened a new office in Avon Park which specializes in employee leasing services for agriculture clients. Other services offered include all aspects of risk management, including workers’ compensation claims management, workplace safety programs, OSHA compliance, unemployment claims and drug-free workplace programs; employment compliance details such as payroll taxes and personnel record maintenance, and payroll administration, which encompasses calculating and providing payroll checks, year-end tax forms, and online reports and payroll processing.
Administrative Concepts was founded by George Bushong and Sarah Peel in 1995 to assist business owners in the details of managing their companies, offering PEO services such as risk management, payroll and employee administration, government compliance, and employee benefits. Administrative Concepts is headquartered in Bradenton and has eight other offices throughout Florida, including Avon Park, Tampa, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Mary Esther, Naples, Pensacola and Port Orange. The company has been honored with multiple awards from Florida Trend, and Sarasota-Manatee Business Magazine, and was listed as the 18th largest privately owned company in the Tampa region by the Tampa Bay Business Journal. Administrative Concepts has received additional recognition by the Tampa Bay Business Journal as one of their top-ten ranked PEOs.
