HR with Aloha!

Hawaii’s Kama’aina HR & Payroll Provider

Who We Are

Founded in Kailua-Kona in 1998, HR Hawaii’s mission has been to help local businesses overcome the state’s unique HR challenges, alleviate payroll headaches, and navigate complex compliance regulations.

We know that running a business in Hawaii is no easy job. With rising employee insurance and payroll costs, Hawaii’s businesses need a full-service HR provider to control HR costs and stay competitive.

We pool businesses together under a large insurance umbrella to offer more competitive employee insurance rates, usually only available to much larger companies. We also offer a comprehensive array of administrative solutions, tailored to your business’ needs.


William L. Wong, CPA, PFS, RIA, was honored and named the National winner of the U. S. Small Business Administration’s Accountant Advocate of the Year for 1999. He has served as the Taxation Chair of the Governor’s Task Force on Regulatory Relief and as a member of the Taxation Working Group of the Economic Revitalization Task Force for the State of Hawaii.

His strong advocacy for the small business sector in Hawaii has helped to expose challenges small businesses in Hawaii face, and affecting changes to relieve regulatory and tax burdens on small businesses. He has carried his message about small businesses to County, State, and National audiences.

Partner With Confidence

HR Hawaii is proud to have earned certification through the IRS as well as accreditation through the Employer Services Assurance Corporation (ESAC) Client Assurance Program, the gold standard credential for full-service payroll & HR companies.

We are proud to be the only Hawaii-based payroll company that has achieved IRS Certification. This grueling certification process requires independent financial auditing to demonstrate strict financial assurance to our valued clients.

ESAC’s program monitors HR companies for adherence to important financial, ethical, and operational standards, much like the FDIC for the banking industry. HR Hawaii’s ESAC accreditation underscores the quality of our services and assures our clients we meet the highest standards of financial and executive integrity.
