The total people investment company
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 total people investment right. 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 investing in people naturally extends to bringing people together. We’ve seen the virtuous value in connecting our own team members with our people-driven clients and partners through events and other thought leadership opportunities. We’ve also launched the Grove Online Community through the Sequoia People Platform to help clients share best practices, embrace new ways of thinking, raise the bar for how to take great care of people, and reshape our industry.
For the past 23 years, Sequoia’s fundamental focus has been to come through for people — no matter what. To achieve that promise, we’ve organically expanded our capabilities so we can better guide our clients and help them get the most value out of their people programs.”
