About Us

SERPEO, an affiliate of The Bower Companies is headquartered in Troy Michigan, and continues to grow as a premier provider of payroll, benefit and full service human resource solutions throughout Michigan and the U.S. The Bower Companies began in 1991 as part of a national staffing and PEO franchise. Through years of experience in delivering staffing and PEO services nationally, it became apparent that we could provide more value added services to our clients through a local owner/operator service model. In 1995, SERPEO established a new identity and has served over 1,000 companies, employing over 12,000 workers. We are proud to be recognized as Crain’s 2007 Cool Places to Work and Metro Detroit’s 101 Best & Brightest companies to work for three years in a row! 

SERPEO is a professional employer organization offering human resource solutions to support the management of everyday Human Resource functions while minimizing risk, maintaining compliance and making your company an even more desirable place to work in the community. As a Professional Employer Organization (PEO), we enable clients to cost-effectively outsource the management of human resources functions including payroll, taxes, risk management and benefits. This provides the client company with employment administration relief and a transfer or sharing of many employer liabilities.

Each of our Account Managers is certified as a Professional in Human Resources or Senior Professional in Human Resources (PHR or SPHR) by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). SHRM is the world’s largest HR management organization and provides the industry standard in HR education and practices. These PHR certifications verify that the holder has demonstrated a mastery of the HR body of knowledge and stays informed of new developments in the HR field.

Core Purpose

Our Core Purpose is why we, as a company, exist beyond making money. Our core purpose is “Helping People Succeed.” It is a noble cause indeed. Market forces, business strategies, and leaders may shift, but our core purpose is timeless. It is fundamentally unchallengeable. It is carved in granite and we proudly display it behind unbreakable glass on the walls of our office.  Each individual displays an attitude of servitude and treats everyone with respect and dignity with each contact every day. We genuinely care about the well-being of others without regard to expectations and outcomes, the goodwill-generated benefits everyone.

This passion takes on a true accomplishment in helping people succeed and positively influencing the lives of others. The demands placed on every business require that employees bring the totality of who they are to the game… they actively engaged their hearts, minds and souls with relentless determination.
