Verdict / TriNet is a well-rounded service that offers everything we looked for in a PEO. However, you may need to sign a long-term contract with this company, which could be a disadvantage.
TriNet offers extensive HR services, such as payroll, risk management and benefit administration. TriNet is licensed in all 50 states, which is helpful if you have offices or remote employees in different places. This PEO company provides the assistance you need to streamline your human resources department and focus on the strategy and organization of your company.
With TriNet, professionals handle all of your administrative tasks, such as creating and updating employee handbooks, conducting online trainings, and working with employees to improve their performance. TriNet will also assist you throughout the hiring process. If you desire, it will help you post jobs, write customized job descriptions, screen applications and perform background checks.
Payroll processing and benefit administration are TriNet's specialties. TriNet offers several benefit plans for your company, including health, dental, vision and life insurance options. You also have access to retirement plans and flexible spending accounts when using this PEO service.
You may be required to sign a long-term contract to use TriNet. This is not always the case, however, as TriNet plans vary on a case-by-case basis. Be sure to check the terms of your contract before signing so you know if your service is month-to-month or for a longer set amount of time.
TriNet features a cloud platform so you and your employees can easily access important data such as benefit and payroll information. You can access this platform directly from the TriNet website. A mobile app is also available with this PEO service. With this app, your employees have access to all of their pay, paid time off accrual and benefit information. This app also provides a contact book of your colleagues.
TriNet provides email, telephone and live chat options for reaching support representatives. We are pleased to see all three options available, since many similar companies lack any type of live chat support. It also provides several resources to help you with company decision-making processes and working directly with a PEO service. You can access FAQs, whitepapers, webinars and articles on the company website. The company blog provides additional information regarding this service and its processes.
TriNet is a strong choice for a service to manage all of your company's administrative tasks. It provides all the services we look for in this type of company and is a PEO solution worth your consideration. However, you may be required to sign a long-term contract, depending on the services you sign up for and the setup of your company.
