TriNet has a strong presence in 1871. The platform made a lot of sense. I have a lot of background in general business management and TriNet seemed to make HR administration really easy.

TriNet - Best HR Tools for Startups

TriNet is a professional employer organization (PEO) that is a one-stop-shop for all of your HR needs, from hiring employees to managing benefits, payroll, travel expenses and more. It allows you to choose among a multitude of different, pre-assembled packages, dividing its services among four categories of software: expense tracking, time tracking, hiring and performance management. Managing all of your HR functions under the TriNet umbrella is often more expensive than picking and choosing a number of complementary HR tools, but the breadth of services and discounts it offers make it a staple among startups with fewer than 75 employees.

How startups use TriNet?

Some Seed-stage companies value TriNet for the way it manages every aspect of HR in one place, but it’s most often used by small- to mid-sized Series A and B companies who can afford its higher prices, don’t have their own HR staff and need a more robust service than TriNet’s cheaper alternatives.

How much does TriNet cost?

TriNet pricing varies based on number of employees and negotiated rate. Call the company for a direct quote.
