PeopleForce well exceeded my expectations and has been the highlight of my year.
It was great to get such granular, thoughtful, even philosophical well-rounded guidance from the likes of TriNet staff all the way up to national political and business leaders.

Thank you for this conference. Switching to TriNet has been one of the best decisions I’ve made as a leader in the last few years.
I would not have made it through this pandemic without you. You saved me with pulling together what I needed for the PPP.

I feel taken care of and supported as a lonely leader with your speakers at this conference.
I broke down into tears a few times hearing acknowledgement about how stressful and alone I’ve been. I feel encouraged to keep going, stay alive, payroll after payroll. Keeping my business alive and my people employed with benefits is important and I’m not alone. Thank you so much.

“Your conference really helped my morale. I felt someone actually understood the crippling pressure I’ve been under.
