Gusto benefits has better coverage at a much better cost. Before Gusto, I had to find health insurance options on the open market, which was expensive, as well as the plans being subpar. With Gusto, I am able to offer much better insurance options, which helps me retain employees, as well as gives me the confidence to offer this benefit to future employees.
Offering benefits to our employees was something that we needed to handle. Without benefits, we were seeing a bigger staff turnover and were having difficulty in hiring strong candidates for new positions. As a small business, navigating the benefits process is a minefield and long winded, where we could have easily made wrong and costly decisions. Gusto gave us a complete solution for this allowing us access to great benefits packages at rates that we could afford without having to bounce through multiple different brokers.
We are a small company, stretched thin and time poor. Not having to worry about managing payroll and the benefits packages offered to our team is a huge weight that we do no have to carry due to how simple Gusto makes this.

Gusto benefits is comparable to a group rate at a large company with only a few employees enrolled and an overall small staff. Offering my staff health insurance was a business goal, and I’m not sure I would even have been able to achieve that goal without a platform like Gusto. I feel more at ease knowing my staff is not financially vulnerable to a health related issue.
Gusto benefits simplifies the entire enrollment process by keeping the important information for my employees in a single place. The integration of benefits with the payroll system saves time for balancing our books and other accounting needs. The time savings is something that always astounds me.

Gusto benefits has saved me countless hours that I now spend on activities more beneficial to the company. I love not having to deal with multiple parties for our insurance needs. Everything is seamlessly integrated in Gusto and I don’t need to worry about keeping the list updated with the insurance provider as we add or let go of our employees.
Chief Operations Officer, Small Business Healthcare Company
With our employee information already in Gusto for payroll, the integration allowing that information to sync over to benefits administration is seamless for both employees and management. Gusto has allowed our business to standardize a complex process while requiring minimal resources and providing a user experience as or more intuitive as any software platform we use throughout our organization. Gusto has allowed us to offer the payroll and benefit advantages of a much larger organization without the requirement to carry as large of a management overhead as larger organizations. Our ability to continue to offer these services while also managing them well is part of the reason we’ve been able to grow as desired.

Gusto saves me time and money with everything being automated, like employee on-boarding. Gusto offers reports that are easy to understand. Gusto was extremely helpful during COVID shutdown in helping me understand my options and how I can help employees. They also provided easy to understand and easy to generate information on how to obtain the funding needed to keep my business afloat during the COVID shutdown.

Gusto benefits is my one stop shop as an employer, and is convenient for employees to review their plans. I appreciate the knowledge of the Gusto team and the information available to me in my account (plan choice, member info, plan cost, carrier contact info).
I love the ease of use and how simple everything is with Gusto benefits. Plus I can do everything from my phone! I like keeping payroll and benefits together in one place. I also know Gusto will have my back if I need help with any insurance company!
Gusto benefits is so easy to set up and manage. There’s little work on my part as an employer. I have enough to worry about on a day to day basis, Gusto takes what could be a huge headache and makes it a breeze!
Rob Kissner, Chief Executive Officer, Digital Arts Experience Inc
Setting up benefits with Gusto was very easy – much easier than any past experience, and handling payroll deductions, signing up new employees, etc. is very easy. Gusto saves me a lot of time and frustration, and allowed me to offer benefits I probably would not have offered otherwise.
Gusto benefits makes getting my important HR questions answered in a worry-free environment, where I post my question to customer service and am given a diligent and thorough answer to make it easier for me to guide staff and make decisions. Having everything all at my disposal in one portal makes this a no-brainer. Gusto is easy to navigate and carry out tasks, and decisions are easy to make.
Rebecca Galvez, Finance Director, Linda Honan, Inc
Our start up business expends less energy managing benefits when we offer them through Gusto. Employees like having benefits and payroll information all in one place as it simplifies the task of managing them.
Kate Morse, Business Operations, Dragonfruit AI, Inc.
Gusto benefits is a one stop shop that lets employees manage their own benefits in one easy to use portal. It’s great to have payroll and benefits managed within the same system. Makes billing and admin tasks much easier and more efficient.
Chief Executive Officer, Small Business Media & Entertainment Company
With Gusto benefits, everything is in one place and there is less to manage. Also it is helping us take good care of our full time employees. Adults in the restaurant industry often struggle with not receiving the normal perks that more office style careers include. We are happy to be able to offer that to our staff and we believe it gives us longevity in their employment with us. We are saving money and making sure we are able to stay healthy physically and financially.

Gusto has everything—payroll, benefits, time off—in one system which makes everything easier for both employees and employers. I don’t get questions anymore about where to find things because everyone knows that it’s all in Gusto. Our previous platform was supposed to do all this as well, but implementation was poor, errors were common, and we ended up spending way too much time cleaning up the provider’s messes. Gusto has proven to be the better solution – it prevents headaches, saves the company money, and gives us all peace of mind.
Even as someone who has managed benefits selection for our company, I still find the task of decoding benefits daunting. Gusto makes it much easier to understand what my benefits are by breaking plans down in the “What’s Covered” tab, providing links to our plan’s documentation, listing contact information for my provider, and breaking down cost and coverage periods.
Sarah Mayes, Chief Operations Officer, Agile Impact Group
Having benefits with Gusto helps our organization attract and retain outstanding team members. More, it allows us to provide more value to our team members in a way that does not add burden to our people operations. Gusto’s benefits processes are streamlined, easy to navigate, and a model for approach, with exemplary continuing support. If it were not for Gusto benefits, we would probably not be able to recruit at a high level, retain key players, or be a well-rounded destination employer. That helps me build a stronger organization and scale faster.
I can’t imagine running my business without Gusto. It’s become an essential part of my life as a founder and CEO. I’m a product-focused CEO. I like to spend time building with my team. By making benefits and payroll so seamless, Gusto gives me back precious time to spend productively with my team, building for the future.
