We began ESSG in 2005 with a simple goal: to increase value and alleviate the stress of running your business. We were founded in 2005 around a kitchen table, by an ex-labor law attorney, a financial banker, and a business development expert. With their combined strengths and knowledge they were able to identify and develop a unique, all-inclusive solution to the most persistent problems in employment and workforce management.
Ours is a new way of providing the best “back office” business services, founded on a groundbreaking model that truly helps employers who are struggling with the costs and time-consuming operational tasks that come with running and managing a team of employees. We saw how we could deliver an innovative and comprehensive human resource service to reduce the risk and vicarious liabilities common for business owners.
Currently, our business operates entirely on referrals. That’s the groundwork we’ve built, by consistently providing our partners with a variety of crucial “back office” services and expertise. Today, our workforce solutions ranges from payroll administration to Compliance, HR & Legal, and even HR & Recruiting Software.

We partner with ESSG for the flexibility, efficiency and expertise they provide. ESSG gives us the flexibility to do business across the U.S., without having to incur the costs and administrative burden of maintaining active status in states during times when we are not actively working in those states. ESSG has allowed us to create efficiencies in our business, because they handle our payroll, claims management and benefits administration, allowing us to cover all of these areas without increasing our internal headcount to do so. Finally, ESSG’s team has proven to be a wealth of knowledge in the areas of workers compensation, claims management and benefits management and compliance. Not only do they handle these things for us, but they are always willing to share best practices and lend their knowledge to us in establishing our strategic business plans.
Our company has worked with ESSG for over 10 years. Having their support with our employee taxes, has taken away a lot of stress for me. They handle it all, state, federal, UI and Work Comp. We will never go back to doing it ourselves, again. Their processes and forms are simple for anyone to understand. They have payday solutions that will work for every employee. They haven’t failed us in over 10 years, and they have a great team.
We couldn’t be happier with ESSG. Their skilled back office staff handles the paperwork that used to slow us down. Now we can concentrate on what we do best, helping the customer.
I want to take a minute to thank the team at ESSG, for the outstanding service that we receive as their client. The staff is super responsive, and very easy to work with. We value them as a partner.
We have been with ESSG for 7 years. One area they really deliver in, is helping us with regulations like ACA. We have relied on their expertise and experience, which allows us to focus on growth. They help so much with claims, reducing accidents in the workplace and fighting back on false claims. No matter how unique our challenges are, ESSG always seem to find a solution that works for all. We could not be happier to have them as a partner.
ESSG likes to say they are in the business of helping people, and as a business owner using their services for more than five years, I can say that is absolutely a true statement! I’m so impressed by their caring, supportive people who have helped me and my team from day one. They consistently delivered a high level of customer service with the utmost professionalism. Any questions are met with a prompt response, and problems are resolved quickly and efficiently. Although they have larger clients than our small business, they act as if we are their only client; they care and they want to help whatever the challenge may be. They really do go the extra mile. You could not wish to have a better business partner than ESSG and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
ESSG has been a wonderful partner of ours for the better part of a decade. They do what they say they’re going to do, each and every week.
We have been working with ESSG for over 15 years. Over the years we’ve grown and many things have changed in the way we do business. ESSG has been with us for all of it. At times, we’ve added large numbers of employees or clients, ESSG was always able to absorb the additional volume. They always have enough staff to handle the workload. Doing this without them would have been very difficult. We rarely have issues, but when we do, it has been easy to resolve and has never affected our close business relationship. They constantly improve processes and the platforms we share with them. This makes us a more efficient company and improves our bottom line.
