Paycom, one of the fastest growing online payroll companies in the country, has been selected as a finalist in okcBiz magazine’s Top 30 Places to Work in Oklahoma 2012 program, which identifies and honors the state’s best employers.
Best Companies Group collected data and performed employee surveys to determine which companies had the best practices, and participants will be ranked accordingly.
“It is a great honor to be named as one of the Top 30 Places to Work in Oklahoma,” Paycom Founder and CEO Chad Richison said. “Paycom employees are part of a fast-paced culture and they work hard every day to insure our customers receive the best products and the best service in the industry. So, Paycom works equally hard to make sure they are rewarded with significant career growth opportunities and financial incentives. We also offer an environment that’s fun, challenging and energetic,” Richison said.
Paycom moved into its new beautiful, state-of-the-art, employee centric headquarters last August but has been building their unique employee culture since day one. The 90,000-square-foot building includes a colorful and multi-functional cafeteria where employees can gather and enjoy affordable meals, subsidized by Paycom, and a gym with a running track, a basketball court, outdoor fields and fully equipped locker rooms. Paycom organizes sports leagues and encourages employees to take part in a multitude of activities. They also make a regular habit of celebrating and recognizing the achievements of individual employees and the company as a whole.
“This is a very exciting time at Paycom. Because of the steady growth of our company and the type of culture we have built, our employees are finding opportunity around every corner. That’s why our employees, including myself, love working here.” said Lauren Toppins, HR manager for Paycom.
Cody Woodward, Payroll team leader, is a shining example of the fast career track and award winning training program provided at Paycom. Woodward, 26, began his career as a payroll specialist at Paycom in September 2009. After his first 90 days he was promoted to payroll specialist I and in June of 2010 became a payroll specialist III. Very recently, Woodward was promoted to the position of Payroll Team Leader.
“I credit my overall success to Paycom’s excellent leadership and training program,” Woodward said. “Both were crucial in my development as a Payroll Specialist and now as a Team Leader.”
Paycom is a nine-year honoree on Oklahoma City’s Metro 50 list, and a seven-year member of the Inc. 500/5000 for being one of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. Paycom continues to grow revenues at rate of 40 percent year after year by expanding into new markets and adding new services. Paycom is currently hiring 15-20 new employees each month and anticipates adding at least 500 jobs over the next three years. Jobs include positions in sales and software development, client support and general headquarter administrative positions.
