This is Our Story

Will You Join Us?! At Thread, we obsess over the growth of our clients and we believe the companies that will grow the most rapidly in the future understand the same thing we do.

What has defined our story and what is at the core of who we are? Putting your employees at the center of the business is not only vital but imperative to survive.  All of the noise around HR Technology is focused on improving processes and streamlining systems. While we believe that is essential, employee engagement creates the most lucrative return on your investment.

Our Beginnings

Founder and CEO, Lori Winters, has always put the employee first so they can put the customer first.

Starting as Choice Payroll in 2003, Thread has been on an epic ride ever since. From our beginnings as an outsourced accounting and payroll company to our emergence as a leading implementer of a full suite of Human Capital Management technologies, we’ve tried to stay true to our core – “Deliver Wow” to our customers, employees and partners.

Our enlightened clients have joined us in a movement to change the workplace for the better and we hope that you’ll continue to be part of our story.




We have observed from the beginning there is a war for great talent and only companies that create a culture of transparency, growth, and excellence will win that war. We have a mission to change the workplace for the better and we can accomplish that through our clients!
