We focus on the details so your employer/agent-of-record program
is compliant, efficient, and profitable.

Our proven approach to Employer of Record / Agent-of-Record creates simple, unique solutions with an eye on expanding cost savings, increasing efficiencies, growing diversity spend, and mitigating risk.  Unlike many providers, Pinnacle extends our full employee benefits offering (medical/dental/vision/401k) to all payrolled workers, thereby increasing contractor satisfaction and retention.

Payrolling & IC Compliance made simple.

Our payrolling solution manages and holds the liability for your contingent workforce including workers compensation, unemployment claims, insurance coverage, benefits, online time-keeping, tax withholdings, and reporting – all with Pinnacle Group’s world-class customer service.

Scale & Scope

Pinnacle Group manages thousands of contractors throughout the United States and Canada annually. We routinely onboard large groups of contractors when implementing new programs.


Pinnacle Group’s excellence in service makes us a top choice of Fortune 500 and mid-market companies. Our highly experienced Payrolling Practice Group ensures an outstanding customer and candidate experience.


As a 100 percent woman- and minority-owned (Hispanic) business, our clients receive the dual benefit of Tier 1 diversity spend and industry leading payrolling experience
