Selling Power names TriNet one of “50 Best Companies to Sell For”


SAN LEANDRO, Calif. – Sept. 8, 2015 – TriNet (NYSE: TNET), a leading cloud-based provider of HR services, has ranked on the Selling Power 50 Best Companies to Sell For list for the second year in a row.

Underscoring its company mission to power business success with extraordinary HR, the TriNet sales force brings unique, industry-specific HR solutions to small and midsize businesses that need them most. TriNet was evaluated alongside some of the most revered sales organizations in the U.S. for its performance in the following areas:

  • Customer growth and retention
  • Hiring, compensation, sales training and enablement
  • Company recognition and reputation

Each year, the corporate research team at Selling Power magazine assembles and publishes its list of the 50 Best Companies to Sell For. This is the 15th consecutive year the list has appeared in the magazine. The list includes companies of all sizes, with sales forces ranging from fewer than 100 salespeople to companies with sales-force numbers in the thousands.

Selling Power magazine founder and publisher Gerhard Gschwandtner says the companies on the list support excellence in sales in the following ways:
    1. They support salespeople via coaching, training and offering sales-enablement solutions. Salespeople are an expensive and vital asset for any company. As such, they must be trained and coached in order to develop their talents and prioritize their selling activities. Top companies also invest in sales-enablement technology solutions that help salespeople operate more effectively and productively.
    1. They keep salespeople motivated. To attract top salespeople, companies must have a straightforward and streamlined approach to compensation. Companies that truly excel also come up with inventive and creative incentives to keep salespeople positive and inspired.
    1. They create an active selling culture. To salespeople, time is an asset. Every minute they spend in front of customers is an opportunity to close a deal and further the success of the individual and the group. Great sales organizations don’t burden salespeople with too many administrative activities or leave them to find their own leads without support from marketing.
