Executive Summary

C2 is comprised of three (3) different corporate entities: the parent company, C2 Portfolio and two wholly owned subsidiaries — C2 Essentials (our Professional Employer Organization or “PEO”) and C2 Platinum (our Administrative Services Organization or “ASO”).

For nearly two decades, C2 has effectively managed nearly every aspect of the employer-employee relationship on behalf of employers in 50 states and overseas. As this nation’s leading full-service Human Resources outsourcing organization (HRO), C2 is committed to championing the very best interests of employers, both large and small.

Our commitment to effectively managing your workforce is unparalleled. Unlike our largest competitors who operate dispersed call centers, C2 offers a truly boutique delivery of the functions most critical to your workforce.

Our proven success managing your HR needs allows you to remain focused on your core business mission. Our highly trained HR professionals operate seamlessly with your business, helping you become more profitable, compliant, and competitive while avoiding the administrative and regulatory requirements that overburden your operations.

Our interests are aligned with yours, and for almost two decades, we have invested heavily in your success.

“C2 is proud to service its clients as an IRS Certified Professional Employer Organization (“CPEO”). Pursuant to section 7705(a) of the Internal Revenue Code, being a CPEO means that C2 has met the IRS’ rigorous standards to be classified as a CPEO under the Small Business Efficiency Act, and that the IRS has certified C2’s compliance with those rigorous standards — including the timely filing of a properly completed and executed Form 14751, CPEO Surety Bond, which provides additional protections and peace of mind to clients who utilize CPEO’s to ensure compliance with applicable federal and state payroll, withholding, and human resources related laws.”

Our previous PEO kept stumbling in their attempts to provide proper services and guidance to us and in the end we knew we needed to make a change. At best, we hoped that the transition to C2 would be as painless as possible, Instead, we were pleasantly surprised to find that we had a partner in our corner who was willing to bend over backwards to assist us with our HR and Payroll operations.

Before C2, I was bombarded with payroll tax deposits and filings, employee legalities, learning complex labor laws and then staying awake at night worrying about complying with them. Since we hired C2 as our PEO, I have been able to stay focused on growing my business.
