Goldfield. “I’m incredibly proud of the TriNet team and our continued focus on making positive contributions in support of our stakeholders and the communities where we live and work.”

“At TriNet, we are committed to building on the environmental, social and governance foundation we have firmly set in place over the past 35 years,” said Samantha Wellington, TriNet’s Executive Vice President of Business Affairs, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary. “Our ESG work will help to drive our future successes and we are grateful for those who have contributed to getting us to where we are today—and those who will work with us to achieve even more for tomorrow.”

The report underscores TriNet’s commitment to its stakeholders with special attention given to the company’s evolution and leadership over the last year. Highlights of TriNet’s 2023 ESG report include:

Environmental policy: TriNet’s policy details its promise to practice responsible corporate citizenship, engage in sustainable activities and promote stakeholder awareness.

Building Ecosystems:  TriNet’s Historically Underrepresented Businesses (HUB) program continues to leverage TriNet’s SMB ecosystem to help HUB communities connect with each other and the invaluable resources at their disposal. The HUB program developed its Birds of a Feather Fireside Chats series, which focuses on spotlighting under-represented founders, leaders and aspiring entrepreneurs. TriNet also made enhancements to an initiative dedicated to providing our HUB community with access to government programming, which includes access to an R&D tax credit calculator and a free consultation with a TriNet Clarus R+D tax credit expert to help put money back in SMBs’ pockets while incentivizing innovation and growth.

Data storage migration: In 2023, TriNet completed a complex cloud migration project, moving its data storage from on-premises servers to the cloud. This migration to the cloud enables TriNet to vacate three data centers and recycle all the legacy systems, creating a path for long-term, positive stakeholder, operational and environmental impact.

Spotlighting Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Efforts: TriNet joined the Human Rights Campaign’s Count Us In pledge. This pledge encourages businesses to call on lawmakers to abandon efforts to discriminate and reject anti-LGBTQ threats to company values of diversity, equity and inclusion by being proud and public LGBTQ+ allies—all while continuing to ensure transgender and nonbinary employees and their families have access to the health and medical care they need. TriNet also created an LGBTQ+ benefits guide to help LGBTQ+ colleagues and their families navigate benefits and health care questions, as well as an LGBTQ+ benefits guide which outlines TriNet-sponsored benefits available to support our customer’s employees in the LGBTQ+ community, domestic partners and same-sex spouses.

Paper Paycheck Reduction and Pay Card Program: TriNet continues to educate customers and their employees on the benefits of paperless paycheck options in an effort to reduce waste and emissions that occur from generating paper paychecks. By choosing a paperless payroll solution, our customers, their employees and the environment all benefit.

Corporate Social Responsibility: TriNet’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program provides an opportunity to support nonprofits with a mission to foster positive change, economic development and the growth of entrepreneurism. This year, TriNet announced a partnership with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, in which we provided training programs, volunteer opportunities, educational resources and more. We also donated to the National Association of Women Business Owners and the NAACP Empowerment Programs, Inc. This is part of an ongoing effort to make a positive impact through the TriNet Foundation, a donor-advised fund and a key component of our CSR program.

Board and Executive Officer composition: Currently, nine directors serve on TriNet’s board, including three directors who identify as women and three directors from historically under-represented communities. Of our five executive officers, two identify as female and three are members of historically under-represented communities.

Vendor Code of Conduct: TriNet implemented a code of conduct for vendors, suppliers, contractors, consultants, agents and their employees, holding them to high ethical standards including environmental sustainability, human rights and a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
