We get paid by benefits providers—for example, your health insurance carrier—if you choose to manage your benefits through Zenefits. Managing your benefits through Zenefits is free (though you still have to pay the providers for your underlying benefits).
Because we can operate profitably on the revenue paid to us by the benefits providers on our system, we can offer you our service for free—a service PEOs, HR Outsourcers, and other HR software typically charge for.
No hidden fees, contracts, or surprises.
Even if you choose not to add your benefits, Zenefits' Core HR platform is 100% free, though we do offer a few—completely optional—paid features, such as stock options administration.
