Do you wish your payroll processes and HR tasks were completely stress-free? Are you tired of using multiple tools to keep track of your employees’ benefits? Well, there’s a fairly new platform that can provide you with the peace of mind you need when managing HR and payroll tasks.

Zenefits, a startup that manages benefits and payroll for small and medium-sized employers, takes the stress out of managing important HR tasks. Its online platform streamlines benefits and payroll management into a single, easy-to-use platform.

How does Zenefits work?

Zenefits allows employers to integrate their current payroll and benefits programs into their system, or helps employers sign up for a new plan. Once employers have their services in place, everything from payroll to employee onboarding is managed online.

For employers. Zenefits combines practically every HR task into a single dashboard for employers to use. Everything from payroll and taxes to benefits and insurance is accessed and managed in the Zenefits dashboard.

Managing benefits can be a tedious process for new startups, especially when you have a number of other responsibilities on your plate. With Zenefits, startups can receive benefits including medical, dental, 401K, life and disability insurance, and more directly through the platform.

For HR professionals. Not only is Zenefits useful for payroll and benefits, but it also assists HR departments with employee onboarding and employee self-service tools. Zenefits also takes care of HR reports, PTO tracking, and online I-9s, W-4s, and W-9s.

Whether it’s time to hire a new employee or let one go, Zenefits makes these HR processes simple. It minimizes hiring paperwork by providing online forms and allows employees to manage their own benefits when life events occur, such as a marriage or a new child.

Pros of Zenefits

  • It’s completely free to use for employers and employees.
  • The dashboard is clean and easy to use.
  • The company provides in-house insurance, payroll, and HR specialists as part of its customer service.
  • Employees can manage their own benefits through the platform.

Cons of Zenefits

  • Although switching to new insurance providers through Zenefits is easy, the process can be lengthy depending on the insurance company’s approval.

Zenefits is the perfect platform for small businesses and startups who desire a simple platform for managing everything they need to run their payroll and HR tasks. For more information and to try a demo, visit
