"A recent survey of employees age 18-34 by HR solutions provider TriNet reveals that 69% of millennials see their company’s review process as flawed and nearly 90% would feel more confident if they could have more frequent performance conversations with their manager. Twenty-two percent have called in sick because they were anxious about their upcoming review."
TriNet is an HR software and service provider focused on the professional employment organization (PEO) model, meaning TriNet takes on the HR risk for employees at customer companies. We talked to Pravin Kumar, VP of Product Management, about the company’s tri-fold growth, in terms of revenue, geography and verticals.
Jacqueline Breslin, human capital services director at TriNet, a human resources company, said adult coloring books would be a good addition to office recreational opportunities. "We're so used to seeing ping pong tables or video arcade games in larger offices, but if I were planning some kind of break room for employees I would definitely include coloring books," she said. "For people with intense jobs, they are a fantastic stress reliever."
"According to a recent survey conducted by TriNet, a company dedicated to providing HR solutions, 69 percent of millennials see their company’s review process as flawed.

Work Genius, a company so new that it barely exists, wants to give on-demand companies the best of both worlds by hiring employees on their behalf, training those employees, and then scheduling them to work with on-demand companies at peak times. It’s not unlike what Trinet does by becoming a co-employer for more traditional companies. "We basically own that relationship, bear all the burden, and allow the companies to have flexibility and not have all this liability on their books," says Work Genius founder Ben Bear.
Benefits and compensation can also reveal the differences between older and younger workers. “Employees later in their careers may be more motivated by a 401(k) match, while employees earlier in their careers may be more excited about educational reimbursement,” said Jackie Breslin, director of human capital services at HR services provider TriNet in San Leandro, Calif.
Such an approach is fairly typical as a cost-saving measure and buyout packages don’t usually include the newer employees,” said Jacqueline Breslin, director of human capital services at human resources solution company TriNet. She spoke generally; her company is not involved in the Times matter. “Communicating with employees is really important at a time like this to make a transition easier for everyone,” she added.
"TriNet leads with bigger companies that are 10 to 50 employees large.”
“CEO of Saratoga Springs software developer Chequed Greg Moran said his company uses TriNet, a California professional employer organization. That essentially means all Chequed workers actually get paid by TriNet, and Chequed ‘leases’ those employees. “Chequed recently merged with a Dallas company and now has about 80 employees. Moran said they'll probably remain with TriNet because it takes off the administrative burden and allows for a far wider range of options for employees.”
Mike Belloise, Director of Information Security at healthcare benefits and payroll transaction company TriNet, is also a believer in not wasting bad news. “It takes very, very little to cause a terrible incident at a company of any size. High-profile data breaches such as those of Target, Home Depot and even the federal government make headline news and serve as a gut-check for security professionals. We have to ask ‘Do we have that covered?’ and learn from these scenarios. C-level leaders read these headlines, so we have to be prepared to answer their questions about our own defenses.”
"Don’t approach a happiness initiative with a one-size-fits-all approach. Encourage managers to spend time one-on-one with their directs. Encourage them to ask their team members for the top three things they need from their leader, colleagues and organization. Also, ask how they like to be recognized and rewarded. Treat employees how they want to be treated based on their answers to the direct questions as opposed to a broad-brush approach." – Jackie Breslin, director of Human Capital Services, TriNet
“I’d say for the average, honest employee, they’re losing money on their expense reports,” said TriNet Cloud Division Chief Technology Officer Dan Fritcher, according to reports in USA Today.
Dated expense report systems are more than the time-consuming and tedious annoyance employees and travel managers know well. A Wakefield Research survey on behalf of human resources provider TriNet revealed the cost of sluggish reimbursements to be far greater—as drastic as employees saying, I quit.
For some corporate trekkers, travel expenses are taking a toll on their personal bottom line.
According to a new survey released this week, expense reporting can be so odious and complex that business travelers would take extreme measures to avoid the process altogether.
