Our HR & Payroll outsourcing solution lets you free up your internal resources by handing over a majority of your people administration — the paperwork, the stress, the liability — to a partner that has a passion for managing it well. By outsourcing to Sequoia One, you gain a rich benefits plan rarely available or affordable to small companies. You also gain a united team of HR, payroll, and legal specialists, including our employee advocate team and onboarding team, dedicated to supporting your people with the following services:

Combined with the Sequoia WorkLife Portal, you’ll have a unified way of managing it all that supports your mission and delights your employees.

Proudly serving the most forward-thinking, employee-focused companies
