About Sequoia

People. First.

Sequoia exists to come through for people who put their trust in us. Our mission, our core values, and our definition of success are all based on helping you get the most out of your investment in people. We’re in this business because we know that taking great care of your people leads to better business outcomes. Helping you achieve those outcomes is what drives our team, our strategic service offerings, and our technology forward. 

Our legacy of innovation

Since day one, Sequoia has been finding new ways to help businesses care for their people. We have always valued innovation and firmly believe that technology has the power to unify, streamline, automate, and elevate the HR function at your company. But we will never abandon you to software. We use technology to strategically enhance the expert guidance and committed service we bring to every client engagement. 

Our client community

Sequoia’s focus on caring for people has naturally extended to bringing people together. We’ve seen the virtuous value in regularly connecting our own team members with our people-first clients and partners. Collectively, we harness the power of community to share best practices, embrace new ways of thinking, raise the bar for how to take great care of people, and reshape an industry.
