PeopleSpace Launches Return-to-Office Campaign

PeopleSpace | February 03, 2022

On February 2nd, PeopleSpace, a prominent provider of workspace strategy, office furniture solutions, and custom products, launched a return-to-office campaign called “Let's Talk People, Let's Talk Space 2022.” The campaign is aimed at guiding companies and employees who have become pandemic-weary, back to the work place.

PeopleSpace responded to West Coast employers by developing a customized workplace setting that addresses the increasing demand for workplace wellness and flexibility. PeopleSpace has been working with clients across industries like gaming, entertainment, law, real estate, and healthcare to revisit workplace environments and reimagine them for the post-pandemic return to the office.

PeopleSpace has also appointed new leaders. Gynjer Peck is the new chief design and experience officer. She formerly worked as a design director for the organization.

"The office in 2022 and beyond needs to have a purpose and meaning. Employees are asking for work-life balance and a feeling of belonging, so they feel comfortable and motivated to return."

- Gynjer Peck

Further, Pamela Escobedo has been promoted to the position of chief logistics officer. Her new position will see her overseeing installation services, project coordination, and quality assurance. Michael Fisher will assume the position of workplace strategist.

"Now more than ever, it's important to be intentional about emphasizing company culture and values within the workspace. We're guiding our clients down this exciting path and collaborating together to create workplace ecosystems that support employee productivity and well-being."

- Brian Airth, PeopleSpace's co-founder and chief business development office.

TriNet, a leading provider of comprehensive human resources solutions for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) today announced that it has acquired Clarus R+D Solutions LLC, an industry-leading, service and expertise driven, fintech solutions company that simplifies the R&D tax credit process for SMBs. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Clarus R+D helps SMBs take advantage of the research and development tax credit, one of the largest tax incentives available to US businesses. Clarus R+D's cutting-edge, cloud-based software platform, coupled with the deep expertise of its professional services team, delivers access, compliance, and clarity for federal and state R&D tax credits. The Clarus R+D platform has automated much of the R&D credit qualification and application process to ensure that the final incentives are optimized for each client. Businesses save valuable time as a result of the automated calculation process, while maximizing their R&D tax credit. "With our acquisition of Clarus R+D, TriNet takes another important step towards powering the success of small and medium-sized businesses, Many of our PEO and HCM customers qualify for R&D tax credits and do not have the time or expertise to successfully apply for them. With the addition of Clarus R+D, TriNet expands its offering to better serve these customers. I look forward to leveraging Clarus R+D to put money back in the hands of our hard-working SMB clients." -Burton M. Goldfield TriNet's President and Chief Executive Officer Having worked closely with the Clarus R+D team through the acquisition process, I believe the Clarus R+D team is a great fit with TriNet, Importantly, we both place SMBs at the center of everything we do. We also share the belief that most SMBs are unaware of their eligibility to claim these R&D tax credits. We are excited by this opportunity to unlock possibilities for our customers, and I am thrilled to welcome the Clarus R+D team to TriNet as we pursue this market opportunity,said Samantha Wellington TriNet's Executive Vice President, Business Affairs, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary.

As part of the acquisition, Clarus R+D will become a wholly owned subsidiary of TriNet. In addition to Winslow, all other members of the Clarus leadership team will remain in their same (or similar) roles. Ice Miller LLP represented Clarus R+D as legal counsel in the transaction and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer US LLP assisted TriNet.

Wagepoint acquires KinHR to build ultimate workplace "happiness" solution for small businesses and their teams

Wagepoint | August 10, 2022

Canadian fintech company Wagepoint is doubling-down on its mission to bring happiness to small businesses and their teams with a new acquisition. KinHR – soon to become People by Wagepoint – has joined Wagepoint's family of products, which will create a single solution that takes payroll, time and attendance and (now) human resources tasks off small business owners' hands so that they can get back to doing literally anything else. KinHR is known as a simple, friendly and reliable people management software among its 4,500 global users. This makes it the perfect puzzle piece to complete Wagepoint's stack of small business products, offering everything CEOs and founders need to take care of their people right from the moment they're hired. People by Wagepoint will offer features like an employee directory, time-off management, new hire onboarding, document storage and eSignatures, in addition to ongoing employee performance management tools like employee objectives and reviews. The product will help make workplace operations easier, and maybe even a little "sweeter", for both employers and their teams. "Payroll and HR go together like summer and popsicles – minus the sticky fingers!, When done right – that is, with a focus on keeping it simple and truly caring about the human experience – both payroll and HR can contribute to a happy workplace, just like ice cream! We're excited to welcome People by Wagepoint to our family of products. Now, we can help our customers create a delightful experience for their employees, right from the moment of hire and at every touchpoint that follows." - Shrad Rao, CEO of Wagepoint Delighting customers will remain a key pillar as the company moves forward with the rebrand and builds a team around People by Wagepoint. Both Wagepoint and KinHR have a Capterra rating of 4.6 out of 5 by their users – notably, for friendly customer support – and the new product will continue building on that trust, says Melissa Benzo, former Director at KinHR and current Director of People by Wagepoint. KinHR has always been about creating a simple approach to HR software so that small businesses can focus more on their employees and their business, rather than the management of 'stuff' that comes with HR. Wagepoint is just the company to continue that effort and expand on that idea by keeping all things light, friendly, and simple, I always tell KinHR customers 'we're here to help,' and I feel that echoed throughout the entirety of Wagepoint,says Benzo. People by Wagepoint is the second small business software to be acquired by Wagepoint in 2022. Earlier this year, Timesheet Mobile joined the Wagepoint family and will soon be available to customers for all of their time and attendance needs, rebranded as Time by Wagepoint. About Wagepoint Wagepoint is a small-but-mighty fintech company on a mission to simplify payroll – and maybe even dare to make it delightful! Our online software was created just for small businesses, automating the most "ugh" parts of payroll – like calculating wages and reporting on taxes – so that our customers can get back to doing, well, literally anything else. Backed by the world's friendliest team, Wagepoint is always supportive, never stuffy and refreshingly human. Founded in 2012, we make payroll magic happen for more than 20,000 small businesses, accountants and bookkeepers across North America.
