When Chris Belna saw there was a need for a payroll company that offered a number of HR options for companies to pick and choose their services, she decided to create ARETE. They are taking care of our payroll needs now. Every time I have called with questions or requests, the staff has been attentive and thorough. They are patient and professional.
I am always impressed by their level of dedication to research what is new in their industry and to take the time to learn all about it so they can offer the most up to date services. I would highly recommend Arete for all your service needs.

Lisa Thurston Branch Operations Manager

I cannot say enough “good” about Arete HCM Solutions! Having a service that cares about perfection, follows through and generally cares about my business is quite a bit different than the “big” services out there. I cannot recommend them enough!

Paul Fried President

We have been using Arete payroll services since their inception and have not had one question or issue that they have not handled immediately and effectively. Great job!

Chris Avery COO of IBN Financial

We switched our payroll to Arete in the Spring of 2020 and I could not be happier with the customer service I have received. They are here for me every step of the way!
