Kearny Bank now offers payroll and HR services

Through an agreement with Newark-based Liberty Payroll and HR, Kearny Bank announced Wednesday that it is offering its business clients direct access to an expanded variety of essential services, with emphasis on comprehensive payroll and human resources solutions.
To arrange for utilizing Liberty’s offerings, clients may either complete an online form or reach out to their banking team.
“We’re committed to full-service business banking, and this partnership enables us to provide clients with an even greater variety of services,” Veronica Ross, Kearny Bank senior vice president/treasury management leader, said. “Liberty has a remarkable 95% client retention rate and utilizes the very latest technology. We’re really excited about introducing our clients to them.”
Established in 2005, Liberty also offers time and attendance, as well as employment policy services. The majority of its client companies have fewer than 500 employees.
“We established Liberty based on confidence that we could offer better professional services than the competition,” Josh Rothenberg, Liberty’s vice president of sales and marketing, said. “We’re focused on excellence, and I believe Kearny Bank’s clients will quickly perceive that working with us provides business advantages.”
Kearny Bank business clients who engage in a payroll services or human resources relationship with Liberty will always have the option of speaking directly to an account representative. An intuitive, state-of-the-industry online interface is available as well.
“We’re delighted by Liberty’s exceptional competence and outstanding client service — and its being located in Newark is icing on the cake,” Ross added. “Kearny Bank has conducted business in northern New Jersey since the 19th century, and we embrace vendor relationships with local companies. Many of our clients are from this immediate area, so a Newark company provides a degree of mutual familiarity that makes everyone comfortable.”
