Washington, D.C. – The Internet Association is proud to announce that Zenefits has joined as the organization’s 35th member. The fastest-growing SaaS company in history, Zenefits is a free, cloud HR automation platform that makes it effortless to manage a business and its employees by automating all of the associated HR administrative work: compliance, on-boarding, payroll updates, health insurance, and other employee benefits.
“Our company’s mission is to make it effortless for our 10,000 customers to manage their small- and medium-sized businesses, and provide benefits to over 100,000 employees,” said Zenefits Vice President of Public Policy Chris Massey. “We’ve harnessed the power of cloud computing to solve a problem every entrepreneur faces. Our solution doesn’t just eliminate the paperwork; it eliminates the actual work through HR automation via cloud computing. The Internet Association is a natural partner, and we’re proud to be a member.”
Zenefits’ free cloud-based software lets employers manage their payroll, health insurance, on-boarding, benefits, and more — all from a single, beautifully-designed dashboard. Employers can connect to their existing benefit providers or add new ones as needed, automating 95 percent of administration work so that tasks which used to take weeks can now be done in minutes. Zenefits does this all for free, without any contracts or disruptive switching of legacy systems, for over 10,000 small-and medium-sized businesses across the United States.
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, small firms create 63 percent of net new private-sector jobs. Zenefits allows these small firms to increase their productivity, thereby creating opportunities to employ more workers and contribute more to the prosperity of our economy. With more than 10,000 customers today, Zenefits’ rapid growth since its inception in 2012 is unprecedented among business-software startups.
“The Internet Association is excited to welcome Zenefits to our community of leading Internet companies,” said Michael Beckerman, Internet Association President and CEO. “Zenefits has truly embraced the power of the Internet to help small businesses thrive, and we look forward to partnering with them to promote policies that foster and protect Internet innovation in the future.”
