TriNet Expands Austin Office; Connects with Regional Technology Community

New Austin Office and Local Hiring Underscore Focus for HR Innovation and Product Development

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. – July 18, 2016 – TriNet (NYSE: TNET), a leading cloud-based provider of HR services, today announced it has expanded its presence in Austin with the grand opening of its new offices in the heart of Research Park. The new 33,557 sq. ft. offices will house teams from TriNet’s technology, sales and service departments. This will allow the company to tap into Austin’s thriving entrepreneurial community to further develop its human resources (HR) product offerings for small to midsize businesses (SMBs). 

Already in the last four months, TriNet has hired more than 80 local engineers as it continues to offer the industry’s most effective services to help relieve the HR burden for SMBs and provide their employees with intuitive, effective applications. With this expansion, TriNet is taking advantage of Austin’s local pool of technology talent and further increasing the size of its technology team. 

In addition to serving TriNet’s current list of Austin-based clients, the company will leverage the new offices to expand its reach within the area’s flourishing entrepreneurial community. In particular, the company will grow its vertical industry-focused HR service and sales staff to provide increased support to SMBs in Silicon Hills.

The decision to expand business in Austin was also fueled by the strong demand from SMBs looking for help staying compliant with increasingly burdensome Affordable Care Act (ACA) regulations and rising healthcare costs.
