Working With Wise

Streamlined. No nonsense. How can we help?

From the time you reach out to us throughout your engagement, our goal is to be responsive, supportive, and easy to work with. We engage leaders and subject matter experts during your first calls to ensure we completely understand your organization and needs and to fully describe how we can help you. Let’s figure out how we can be a great partner for you – every step of the way.

The Wise Difference.

Experience from the get-go.  It starts with recruiting people with a passion for creating an environment for HR and Payroll professionals to excel through access to technology and solutions that really helps them and the employees and managers they support.

Deep system knowledge translated into ideal configuration.  Today’s SaaS technology brings uber-flexibility and freedom from IT infrastructure to help organizations meet diverse needs. The system itself is the clay. Configuration molds the clay into something real.

“...we translate your vision into a good investment.”

— Jennifer Wise, CEO and Board Chair

Taking on payroll staffing and complexity.  Our Managed Payroll offering is best described as “becoming your payroll department.” Coupling certified payroll experts with in-depth system knowledge creates a team to take on even the most complex payroll environment.

100% Employee-Owned ESOP

After 20 years under our founder and owner, Jennifer Wise, in 2016, Wise Consulting became a 100% employee-owned ESOP.

ESOPs (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) were first introduced in 1956 to provide a structure for company ownership to be transferred to employees over time and without employee individual investment. The ESOP is, in fact, a qualified defined-contribution employee benefit plan, designed to provide supplemental retirement funds. As the company does well, the value of the employees stock (and this retirement fund) increases.

From our founding in 1996, ‘ownership’ was always part of the Wise culture – ownership of client success, ownership of team and partner support, and ownership of company revenue and profits. The ESOP just made it more official. Every person you work with at Wise is a company owner.
