For the second-consecutive year, Paycom was ranked as the Sooner State’s second-best place to work, on the 2014 Top Workplaces in Oklahoma list. In addition, the Oklahoma City-based software company received special recognition for its ethics policy.
“Paycom’s culture is founded on creating an environment that empowers our employees, allowing them to flourish each and every day,” Paycom founder and CEO, Chad Richison, said. “We are honored to be recognized again, and thank our employees for their contributions in this achievement.”
In selecting the Top Workplaces in Oklahoma, WorkplaceDynamics LLC went straight to the heart of each organization – its employees – with a confidential, 22-question survey. The questionnaire covered seven factors, measuring how employees feel about their day-to-day work, whether they are working together toward a common cause, and their overall engagement.
Paycom performed well in each category because it promotes a strong work-life balance for its employees, offers needed benefits at affordable costs, and listens to and engages with its workforce. Annually, Paycom offers its employees and their families the opportunity to attend numerous events, highlighted by the annual Year-End Party in Dallas. Paycom also hosts family-friendly fall and winter parties, as well as activity-filled work events like National Payroll Week and Wellness Week.
Employee perks include $1 per-pay-period health insurance; $4 daily catered lunches; and a free, on-site gym, where free Zumba and boot-camp fitness classes are held.
Paycom’s employees also gave the Oklahoma City tech company top marks for ethics.
“Strong ethics and values should be the cornerstone of any great business, because the trust and respect of your co-workers and clients are not automatic; they have to be earned,” said Richison.
