With more than 20 years of history, Gainesville, Fla.-based APR employs a team of seasoned experts with extensive HR and business administration knowledge to support its small business clientele. This deep understanding of SMBs personnel needs, an in-depth business operational expertise and a strong PEO broker network positions APR well within PrestigePEO's growing family of brands.
PrestigePEO and APR offer a plethora of essential HR benefits and alternatives to health insurance brokers and their clients. PrestigePEO and APR will work together to maintain the same high levels of client assistance and support while building new partnerships throughout the broker community.
