They did an excellent job in Covid, including creating reports needed for various government programs. However, they could have done better at being more responsive for the employee benefit programs that emerged.

In support, I have had a chance to view the videos with instructions on PPP which were very helpful and in building reports for PPP loans. Since funding started we have been bombarded with info.

TriNet has made onboarding and offboarding more efficient for us, and approvals and workflows are easily sent to needed staff while being scattered across the US due to hiring people remotely.
TriNet was useful for a while with compliance and reporting. Issues with plan changes and staff needs being in different locations did cause some hiccups.
