Key Driving Factors: Insperity’s business is currently benefiting from strength in the professional employer organization or the PEO industry.

Insperity makes consistent efforts to reward its shareholders. In 2021, NSP repurchased 716,000 shares for $69.7 million and paid out dividends totaling $144.2 million.
