Welcome to Employer Services Corporation!



Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Employer Services Corporation (ESC).  Headquartered in Buffalo, NY,  ESC is an outsourced HR and employment administration firm offering a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) service model, in addition to HR Outsourcing, HR Consulting, and Administrative Service Organization (ASO) models.

ESC was founded in 1995 with a goal of providing world class service and expertise to the small – medium sized business market.  Since our inception, ESC has evolved in a number of ways.  From changes in branding, technology, and service offerings to a growing team with new roles and responsibilities, ESC now services clients of all sizes across the country and has become an industry leader in the PEO space.

In 2017 we added a sister company, Meliora Consulting, made up of a team of Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belts.  Meliora provides people-centered, data-driven continuous improvement solutions to private businesses, non-profits, and multi-national corporations in Western New York and around the world.  While ESC and Meliora provide distinct services, we share a common goal: to help clients leverage their most valuable asset, their people, in order to achieve the best results possible.

As ESC and Meliora continue to grow and evolve, we remain committed to our founding principles of delivering world class service and hiring the very best professionals.  We pride ourselves on offering our clients a blend of cutting edge technology and a responsive team of experts.

Please explore our site to learn more about who we are as a company, what we can do for your business, and what our clients have to say about working with us.  I invite you to contact us at any time if you’d like to start a conversation.
