Britt Landrum III, President of Professional Employer Organization, Landrum HR, announced today that the company has acquired the assets of The Employee Management Team (EMT), a Sarasota, Florida based PEO with small and medium sized business clients located throughout central Florida. Landrum will maintain the Sarasota office and employ the existing staff members.

Now in its 47th year, LandrumHR is a staffing and PEO company that provides hiring and staffing solutions, as well as HR outsourcing, training and consulting. The Sarasota acquisition brings the number of office locations to six including northwest and central Florida, North and South Carolina. Britt Landrum III, President of Landrum HR, says “We are all very excited for this acquisition and look forward to serving the clients that are located in the Sarasota region including Lakewood Ranch, Venice, Palmetto, Manatee and Bradenton”. The team at Landrum HR offers many years of experience in the PEO industry and many of their team members carry professional certifications in a number of areas. The Employee Management Team offers many PEO services such as HR Support, Payroll and Tax Administration, Benefits Administration, Risk Management and much more. LandrumHR and EMT are both accredited by the Employer Services Assurance Corporation (ESAC), an independent organization that monitors the financial and operational standards of its members, providing PEO clients the assurance of member compliance with the standards of the organization. EMT owner, Rick Ratner states, “Our team will work with the staff at LandrumHR to ensure that all the clients will experience a smooth transition”. Melissa Redmon, who currently serves as EMT’s Operations Manager, will join LandrumHR’s team. Melissa is very familiar with all aspects of the PEO industry and will continue providing services to EMT and LandrumHR clients.
