Why do companies choose Rippling over Justworks?

Reason 1
Reason 2
Reason 3
The only PEO built for scale

Rippling is a technology company first, meaning we offer all the services of other PEOs while also providing automation software that seamlessly connects all of your HR and IT systems. And if you outgrow the PEO, you can switch to Rippling’s Unified Workforce Platform quickly and painlessly.

Rippling handles 100% of your SUTA

Justworks treats 23 states as PEO-reporting states. PEOs, like Justworks, often elect to be PEO-reporting in states where this is an option because it’s operationally easier for the PEO. Plus, they can earn additional revenue by charging a state unemployment tax administration fee, and it makes leaving the PEO more difficult because the customer must set up their own state unemployment tax accounts in those states when they leave. Rippling, by contrast, only treats 18 states as PEO-reporting, and we set up and manage all SUTA accounts and all local tax accounts.

Powerful reporting capabilities

In Justworks, you’re limited by the number of customizable reports you can create, but in Rippling, you can build any report using any data in Rippling. For example, you can track all of your company’s spend globally - payroll, reimbursements, and corporate cards, and slice the data by office, department, or however you’d like.

We're winning across the industry


We started off with Justworks, but quickly realized that Rippling offered a superior product. Being a remote community without an in-house HR person, Rippling PEO just made sense. It provides a more complete, personal experience for our employees.

What we’re hearing from customers

Colby H., CEO

Rippling centralized all HR & benefits into one simple to use place. The PEO saves us thousands a year on insurance costs. Rippling also always continues to add more compatible apps to the platform. Honestly, this is a wonderful platform and far better than any other platform I've used including ADP, & Trinet.

Caleb M., Controller

Rippling is finally the one-stop-shop for all HR automation. It's all online (as it should be) and incredibly user-friendly. It is BOTH Payroll and HR and is reasonably priced.

Laura L., COO

Rippling is easy to use! For a small business where our COO wears many hats, it reduces the amount of time that it takes to perform basic but necessary tasks. Integrating expenses and 401(k) with payroll has been a time saver beyond compare.

Nicole K., Operations Manager

I love how helpful the onboarding team was. In general I have never had a question that I didn't get help solving. The tools available and the integrations make this system very valuable to me and my staff.
