The PayThrive Model

PayThrive is an independent broker of a multitude of Payroll, HCM, and PEO solutions and service providers. We’ve taken the time to vet and curate the best-in-class providers out there, helping you select the right fit. By acting as an objective, independent broker we’re able to “filter” the best options for your business and run interference between you and sales people, thereby making the selection process easier, smoother, and more efficient.

PayThrive’s business model was conceived as a solution to a challenging and sometimes dysfunctional payroll / HCM industry. Consistent employee turnover at the service provider, high pressure sales tactics, company mergers and acquisitions, as well as opportunistic “more than you need” service packages often leave the client company frustrated.  The client is left largely unsupported often sitting on hold, unable to accomplish payroll and far from realizing the ROI they were promised.

Who We Are

PayThrive founder John Bacon strives to disrupt dysfunction and empower the client with choices – to act as an independent trusted advisor or an “HCM, PEO & Payroll Broker”. He saw how this would allow greatly increased candor and greatly reduced conflict of interest – something entirely new to the payroll / HCM industry. John felt that small to medium sized businesses needed more options and better advice when it came to payroll & HCM consulting. He felt strongly that clients would greatly value this approach and see it as liberation. This was the genesis of the PayThrive business model. PayThrive was born, with Human Capital Gains, Realized.
