About Us

Chris wanted to build a Human Capital Management and Payroll company that would challenge the current industry. Arete is built on a foundation of excellent customer service, outstanding value for every client, and personalized solutions.

Our passion and dedication to the client experience is what drives us. By providing great service and unique, helpful resources, our clients are free to focus on strategic development and growth.

We are always looking for great, new talent! If you are interested in joining our team - please apply here.
  • 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.

  • 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!
