For a new part of our business, we have input staff details on Bright HR. There have been times when calls have been made to the helpline for guidance. It does not take long to get to know the staff you are speaking to. In relation to the query addressed with a team member today the service was excellent. Matthew has a great depth of knowledge of the system and works through the shift and annual leave calculations at the click of a finger. Thank you Mathew for your support, you are a star!

TriNet is particularly well-suited for growing companies with limited internal HR resources. Adding a single employee in a new state is very simple with TriNet as they handle everything with the state unemployment and workers commissions. TriNet might not be as good of fit for a company that has all of its operations in a single state and simply needs a payroll and benefits solution. For a company like Priority Power, we need the level of support TriNet offers as we often encounter complex situations in the course of our business.
Read full review Pros When a query has been dealt with via the helpline an email confirming the outcome is often issued which is great for reference at any time. The system is easy to use and the screens are clutter free. The support service offered is easy to access and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Being able to link our website (open positions) with the link given by TriNet to seamlessly send candidates to apply for positions through LinkedIn. Being able to find a candidate per job through the Trinet's ATS. Read full review Cons Direct-dial telephone numbers rather than going through the Peninsula helpline numbers. Setting up annual leave profiles often needs the assistance of a Bright HR representative when staff works quirky shifts. Providing examples of how to set the system up in user guides may help to set the system upright the first time. Read full review Ability to calculate Payroll By State For Some of the Reports I need to run. Lock IN Conversion Rate Earlier. It is always a problem when I run the payroll expecting one conversion rate and then find a different conversion rate when the payroll is actually run for Canada. I liked having an assigned person to my account. Debra Ford was amazing, but I know that TriNEt moved to a more decentralized model. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
The only reason this is not a 10 is that the PEO market is very competitive and as the President of the company I feel obligated to listen to other options. That being said, it will be very difficult for anyone to unseat TriNet as I ma veery pleased with them

The platform is very easy to use, but certain processes don't feel as streamlined as they could be. I'm sure there are reasons for the additional steps but ensuring they are remembered each time they are used can cause errors. Overall, it's very intuitive.

They used to be really good at this when I had a dedicated person. Now that it's a general customer service account, it's really gone downhill and I don't get responses at all sometimes

The overall experience with TriNet has been excellent. From boarding to the daily questions/concerns: Our onboarding was extremely efficient. We had a very small window to switch vendors and TriNet was able to accommodate everything within the period we had. TriNet team is always available to help our company with questions or issues related to Payroll, Health Benefits, Retirement Benefits (401k), etc. TriNet also has a dedicated channel for our employees that can have their questions/issues solved via chat, phone, or email.

it's been awhile, but I recall them being helpful. I got through a lot of it and when I needed help, they can walk me through it over the phone. It's also pretty user friendly in general at a platform. I don't really know what else to type, but they came and helped me in person and also when there was something new, they came and talked to me. They have not done that since with the new model that I hate

it was good, but now I haven't done much and since they changed their model, it's a lot harder to deal with. We're talking online training of the trinet platform and not the online training they provide, right? Their online training is ok, and is unfortunate that there is a totally separate model for training that costs extra when we would only watch one or two things. However, the mandatory sexual harassment training is actually pretty good, it was just a little clunky

Someone familiar with benefits and human resources should be in charge of the implementation. It is a human resource platform.

I chose BrightHR as it offered a one-stop platform for HR management for which we have dedicated UK and ROI HR specialists who not only give HR advice but also write policies and handbooks, etc. They are a one-stop-shop, which was very important as when I signed the contract I did not have an HR person in my team and they were essentially my back office. Also, by signing up, I got access to Bright Safe too; which is great as again it's a one-stop-shop for Health and Safety in the workplace. So I can roll out toolbox talks, training, and accident management.

The other service company we have used is "AAP" or American Automated Payroll. AAP was the only other company I would ever switch to if we were to leave TriNet. Same level of customer service, interactive listening, and also product quality. I worked with them for over 4 years at a previous company and they also do an excellent job. I would say TriNet is their equal and that is a high honor!
