About Us

Founded in 2008 by industry veterans John Hovey and Mike Teachout, Focus OneSource is Iowa’s premier professional employer organization. Focus OneSource is Iowa based and owned with a focus on helping local Iowa businesses strive. With a mission to improve small to medium-size businesses’ profitability and productivity, Focus OneSource offers one resource for employee health insurance, human resource administration, payroll and tax processing. Focus OneSource is the best solution for coordinating the entire business lifecycle. The founders pride themselves on operating as a full-service human resources department and deliver a comprehensive range of solutions that provide clients with a level of support and value previously only available to much larger companies.

Focus OneSource offers the first managed services uniquely designed to offer business owners the information and strategic tools needed to create a distinct competitive advantage and build a more efficient business. Unlike traditional insurance agents, Focus OneSource provides its clients with tailored solutions to meet their evolving business needs without the hassle of having to partner with multiple providers for core employee services. Focus OneSource will provide these services with a “bundled” approach or on a per “choice” option, depending on the customer’s needs and desires.

Trust. Choice. Transparency.
