The collaboration will help Gusto’s business clients automate the process of onboarding new employees by giving them resources to train them in their new role. Igor Khayet, head of business development at Gusto, referred to training and onboarding as “pain points for small businesses.” He added, “[O]ur partnership with Trainual provides an easy and efficient way to serve a business’ team so they can do their best work.”
When a Gusto client adds a new employee, the new hire will automatically be added to Trainual and receive the training they need for their job. The integration with Trainual will allow Gusto’s small business clients to document processes and policies,
customize operations manuals, assign training and test sessions, and monitor completion rates.
“We’re particularly excited about this partnership because it streamlines one of the most commonly missed, but critical steps when a new hire is brought into an organization: equipping them with the right training from the start,” said Trainual founder and CEO Chris Ronzio. “Business owners can now easily connect critical aspects of their business, bringing a new level of operational efficiency to the onboarding process so they can continue to focus on what matters most –– growth.”
With offices in San Francisco and Denver, Gusto processes tens of billions of dollars in payroll for more than 60,000 businesses in the U.S. The company also offers an easier way for small businesses to offer their employees benefits such as health insurance, 401(k) retirement plans, and 529 college savings plans.
Gusto launched in 2012 under the name ZenPayroll and showcased its flagship payroll solution at FinovateSpring 2014. Last year, the company unveiled Flexible Pay, a solution that allows employees to get paid on a different schedule than their employer’s payroll schedule. The company has raised $316 million. Joshua Reeves is CEO.
