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.
