GoCo

We have really enjoyed using GoCo for our HR needs. It has suited us well after we switched from Zenefits. Initially we did not have good support with the rep from One Digital who served as our GoCo broker partner. However, we have a new rep who has been very responsive and helpful when employees have had benefit questions or issues with coverage.

Alternatives Considered

Core HR

Core HR is not as robust and does not allow the same functionality but does provide similar functionality based on the size of our organization.
Genevieve (Genni) Lum Cheong-Brown | TrustRadius Reviewer

GoCo

We switched from Zenefits to GoCo when Zenefits was going through all of their internal turmoil. Initially we had a dedicated rep with Zenefits. Then they took that away and we had a team assigned to a pool of accounts. Then that went away and all we could do was send an email in if we had an issue. It became impossible to manage issues and questions.

Return on Investment

Core HR

  • Still to new to determine.
Genevieve (Genni) Lum Cheong-Brown | TrustRadius Reviewer

GoCo

  • Overall GoCo has provided a fantastic ROI for us. We have really enjoyed the platform and it meets our needs.
  • We were disappointed to learn that GoCo decided to charge for features like organizational charting. When we changed over from Zenefits we were told they were not going to charge for this functionality.
