Payroll and administration platform HR Knowledge has been acquired by The Hibb Group.
This deal marks Hibb’s 40th acquisition since its foundation in 2009, and also marks its 10th of the year.
Founded in 2001, HR Knowledge provides businesses with a range of administrative tools to help complete tasks including payroll, employee benefits, human resources management and benefits brokerage and administration. Its payroll offering includes a virtual system which can take care of processing tasks and produce online reports.

Following the transaction, HR Knowledge’s team will still work from its existing location in Massachusetts.
