The human provider of workforce management solutions.

In 2007, we launched Coastal Payroll to provide employers with a local alternative to national payroll providers. Today, Coastal is a human capital management service provider supporting thousands of clients in California and nationwide.

Our Vision

We strive to have every interaction be exceptional so each connection builds toward a meaningful relationship. At the same time, we create an environment where our employees, clients, and community thrive.

We don’t rest until our clients’ needs are met. Employers need resources to manage their workforce from hire to retire, including human resources, benefits administration, time and attendance, compliance, strategic growth, and much more. As we expand our services and our reach, we evolve to meet those needs.

Our Mission

We deliver positive experiences through our amazing team and impactful business solutions that allow our clients to excel in their business and crush their day.

We accomplish this by never wavering from our values and always seeking to be better tomorrow than we are today. We have the resources, technology, and tools to ease the burden for employers. This burden is increasing almost daily, with regulation and access to instant information through technology. We are constantly innovating and growing our capabilities to be there to help.

If you want a local partner with the capabilities of a national provider, you have found it.
