Our cloud-based human capital management solution integrates payroll, tax, time and attendance, benefits administration, and HR into one easily manageable system. We also offer additional solutions with learning and development, applicant tracking, and HR consulting.

Our dedication to customer service and investment in technology has helped Ahola grow to thousands of clients ranging in size from 1 to 2,000 employees. With over 55 years in business, we have a wealth of experience helping clients of all shapes and sizes manage the business of employment.

The Ahola story has humble beginnings with the launch of the company by the wife and husband team of Rheta and Chet Ahola. What started out as a data processing service for local companies has grown and evolved into a 60+ employee company serving thousands of clients across the U.S. We now provide payroll services and a broad set of HR solutions, which will continue to expand as we meet the needs of our clients, and adjust to the ever-changing landscape of helping clients focus on their business while we take care of their payroll, HR and workforce needs.

Much has changed over the last 50 years, with new leadership, services, and technology, but the one thing that that has endured is the focus on being a family. Our team watches out and cares for each other and this value extends to our clients. Our clients have come to trust and value our expertise and personal touch that we bring to every relationship. A strong part of what has allowed us to endure and persevere through the many changes is the spirit of Sisu (the power that enables individuals to push through hardships) that our founders brought with them, and that has been adopted by all employees as part of our culture. This sense of courage and strength is one reason we are thriving and will continue to help us prosper as we look forward to the next 50 years.
