CLIFTON PARK, NY – October 1, 2021 – GTM Payroll Services, a recognized leader in the greater Capital Region for payroll and human resource information systems (HRIS), will now be able to offer businesses a full suite of human resources support solutions with the acquisition of Pinnacle Human Resources, LLC, a leader in outsourced human resources consulting, HR project-based solutions, and leave of absence administration services.

GTM Payroll Services and Pinnacle Human Resources will combine best-of-breed payroll solutions with best-in-class HR consulting services to offer an unparalleled spectrum of payroll and human resources solutions for businesses.

Many companies are reporting how outsourcing all or part of the HR function to subject matter experts is an increasingly attractive and time-saving option as businesses struggle to manage the complexities of an ever-changing legal compliance landscape, managing and retaining local and remote talent, and implementing HR best practices that keep employees aligned with business goals.

Companies also report how they improve infrastructure through the implementation of better payroll technology and the best practices in HR processes, freeing up valuable time and resources. By utilizing HR consultants, companies were able to effect changes more quickly. Pinnacle
HR consultants have the expertise to implement systems and make improvements to the entire HR delivery system.

I have admired GTM’s ability to respond to businesses’ changing needs. We are delighted to join GTM, with a similar culture dedicated to achieving ecstatic clients by providing them with a robust menu of payroll and HR support solutions.”
