“ESG at TriNet includes more than compliance and letters,” said Samantha Wellington, TriNet’s Executive Vice President of Business Affairs, CLO and Secretary. “TriNet’s ESG program allows our team members to share our focus on the environment in which we all live, how we think about our impact on the society in which we operate and the structures we put in place to enable support of all stakeholders. ESG matters to TriNet, and these are initiatives we all care about, regardless of how the activity is categorized.”
The report imparts TriNet’s commitment to its customers, colleagues, and community, with special attention given to the company’s evolution and leadership over the last year. Highlights of TriNet’s 2022 ESG report include:
Environmental policy: TriNet developed a new policy that details its promise to practice responsible corporate citizenship, engage in sustainable activities and promote stakeholder awareness.
Business travel reduction: TriNet limits colleagues’ permissible travel to that which has significant value for its business and for which remote communication technologies are inadequate to the task at hand. In 2022, TriNet is on target to reduce air miles traveled by nearly 50% and hotel stays by more than 66% from 2019, the last full year before the pandemic.
Teaming up with the Human Rights Campaign (HRC): TriNet joined HRC’s Business Coalition for the Equality Act, a leading group of U.S. employers that support the Equality Act, federal legislation that would provide the same basic protections to LGBTQ+ people as are provided to other protected groups under federal law. Alongside the Human Rights Campaign and Freedom For All Americans, TriNet also signed onto the Business Statement Opposing Anti-LGBTQ+ State Legislation, joining more than 200 major companies.
Human Rights and Labor Standards: TriNet values compliance with universal standards of labor rights and recognizes how they are fundamental in promoting those global human rights. TriNet demonstrated its commitment to human rights and fair working conditions by creating a policy that reaffirms how we’ve historically operated.
Enrich™ product line: TriNet announced the launch of Enrich™, a revolutionary product line that empowers our customers to expand the benefits available to their employees. The current products include Enrich Access allowing customers to offer tax-free travel reimbursements to their employees for medical care received far from their home, Enrich Adopt allowing customers to offer their employees tax-favored reimbursements for expenses incurred during the adoption process, and Enrich Learn allowing customers to offer tax-free educational assistance to their employees. TriNet plans to continue expanding the Enrich product line.
Board composition: Currently, nine directors serve on TriNet’s board, including three directors who identify as women and three directors from historically underrepresented communities.
