Zenefits and TribeHR?

X

Thinking about setting up HR / benefits and wondering which service people have had luck with. I know Zenefits and TribeHR are widely used platforms - what experiences have you had with them? Are there any other platforms I should consider?

I recently rolled out Zenefits here at my company (~50 employees), and it has been wonderful. Its a breath of fresh air from our previous broker, and services. I truly consider Zenefits the Uber of the benefits space.

I've heard good things about justworks.com. It's a PEO model so it's different than zenefits.

It really depends on the number of employees. Depending on the state (I'm in NY), there maybe a limit of anywhere from 2-5 employees to institute a company benefits plan. I use zenpayroll to process payroll, but, wave apps also has payroll waveapps.com/payroll/ , but, not benefits/HR. Justworks.com does benefits/payroll as well. Of course, the big players ADP, Paychex, Insperity are other options.

We use Zenefits, (our NYC based company is less than 20ppl), it's been a pretty bumpy ride, but I like the service in theory and plan to stick with it for a while.

Hi Kimberly, Just a few considerations: Zenefits is a benefits broker and vendor aggregator, they have no advantage over other benefits brokers in going to market to purchase benefits for their customers and they take a percentage of payroll. TriNet is a professional employer organization and helps mitigate employer risks and they are fixed fee. Other PEO platforms to consider: - ADP TotalSource - JustWorks - BambooHR - Insperity - Oasis - Paychex - Sequoia One Additional things to consider is to invest time to have vendor demo their respective environment, understand fees when paying commissions and bonuses, and understand implementation plans.

Also, check set up fees. Trinet's quoted fee was over $3000 for a 2 person company!

A friend of mine works at Zenefits and sent me this comparison to Trinet when a company I've been consulting for was considering in which direction to head:

Here's some info on the differences between Zenefits and Trinet. Feel free to pass along. TL;DR - our platform is better designed and more intuitive, we have paperless onboarding and contractor payment, and we're free :)
    • Zenefits offers the same service as Trinet, except we're 100% free. Trinet however charges $1,000-$3,000 per employee/per year.
    • Trinet co-employs all your employees (i.e. they legally belong to TriNet), which owners hate, because it allows TriNet to hold your feet over the fire if you ever choose to leave. Zenefits doesn't require co-employment, or contracts, or agreements.
    • Zenefits is a tech company focused on building a beautiful online product, whereas Trinet is basically a human powered HR agency. With that being said, I'd like to think our online interface is cleaner / easier to use. There's also the added benefit that we're 100% online and 100% paperless (you still have to fill out paper forms with Trinet). Also, thanks to our technology, we're able to offer a slew of features that Trinet can't match -- like having the ability to hire employees in seconds and pay contractors in 1 click -- all online.

hi, I setup my company on trinet and so far I have been quite happy at least in terms of not having to spend time at all on operative hr issues. as someone who had been both self employed and in large f500 companies, I also appreciated to be able to offer large company style benefits to our employees essentially spending no time at all on the topic, from a service perspactive the only thing I missed was a 401k plan as easy to offer as benefits.

I heard of zenefits and looked at a demo. sw wise looks like one would expect sw to look like in 2015 (trinet definitely does not look like that). however I kind of understood that it's not really a full service model, so I would assume that there would still be costs involved to set up things like benefit plans or is it a misperception on my part?
