I think it’s a really good product for an early stage company, which is where we are. TriNet takes over all the heavy duty work which we would probably not know how to do and we are pretty happy with it. I can’t think of any cons off the top of my head. Their customer support is really great because they are very responsive and helpful.

They’ve been really helpful advisors, especially helping me navigate through complex legal questions and sensitive personnel topics.

TriNet - Best Benefits 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.
