Originally we signed on with TriNet for two reasons: 1.) We needed a more competitive benefits package to attract talent and 2.) as a small business we were investing too much time in HR-related work that was not income-generating.

Weekly payroll for several states. TriNet files all state returns. Benefits are handled with minimal time and attention from our company. Employees work directly with TriNet. HR assistance is very timely and valuable. Access to Fisher Phillips has assisted the company on a couple of occasions.

Currently we are using TriNet as our core HRIS and PEO - HR, Payroll, Benefits, Reporting. We also use TriNet for compliance purposes, and are soon to be rolling out TriNet Expenses. Due to the limited functionality, we do not utilize TriNet for a majority of core HR/People functions such as Org Charting, Employee Directory, Performance Management, New Hire Onboarding, Background Checks, or Headcount Planning.

TriNet provides our company with many services. We benefit from the healthcare options offered through their program. Our employees receive comprehensive coverage while our company shares in competitive rates. The payroll and reporting features are robust and TriNet offers online learning to help navigate these tools. TriNet helped our company transition after our reorganization to a smaller footprint, maintaining our benefits without a significant increase in cost.

TriNet is the PEO we employ. We are a relatively small company with less than 15 employees. Before using TriNet, we outsourced our HR needs to almost five different companies between payroll, employee legal questions, benefits, workers comp insurance, 401k, etc. It has been nice to have all of our HR needs met by one company. It has also allowed our employees greater opportunities with better benefits than we could have provided as a small company.

I used TriNet primarily for HR resources as well as to access my pay stubs, timesheets, W2s, and tax forms. TriNet was the single source for accessing all of these documents in one place and having HR related questions answered. Furthermore, when I moved to a new company, I was still able to log in to TriNet and access my past tax docs and W2s. I loved the fact that all of my information was securely stored whenever I needed to access it in the future.

We have employees in the US and Canada, and use the system to manage all of our HR and Payroll needs. We like the ability for the employees to pick the health benefits they want, and also count on TriNet for all of the Vacation Time and other time-off trackings. I use the system frequently.

Our organization used TriNet as a platform to process payroll for the US staff. The head office is based in Australia as well as the finance team. Being in Australia, the finance team has little knowledge of the payroll requirements in the US. Being with TriNet has helped us to have insight on the US payroll compliances and they are a chat away when assistance is needed. We've been using TriNet to process payroll only.

We use TriNet for our payroll, benefits, and 401k program. TriNet takes care of administering our benefits, which is a huge help to our company. They also manage our 401k program for our employees. Entering payroll in TriNet is fairly simple. I appreciate the fact that I can call them to get answers to my questions.

Best HRIS Hands Down.

TriNet automates our payroll, benefits, and leave administration HR needs. This frees me up to focus on coaching and recruiting employees. They provide timely guidance on HR situations and make employees more empowered to view and manage parts of their own HR journey. Additionally, their webinars and learning offerings make a great perk for my team. While I could do my job without a partner like TriNet, it would not be as easy or as seamless.
