Paycom Software, Inc. (“Paycom”) (NYSE:PAYC), a leading provider of comprehensive, cloud-based human capital management software, received the 2017 Journal Record Beacon Award for the charitable influence in the large business category. The award recognizes and honors businesses that offer vital support to nonprofit organizations throughout Oklahoma.
Organizations in the charitable influence category demonstrate a company culture that encourages and supports volunteerism, charitable giving and community involvement by its employees. AT&T, IBC Bank and Remington Park were also finalists.
“It is our privilege to support both the Salvation Army and Infant Crisis Services, who lift up those in a time of need,” said Kathy Oden-Hall, Paycom’s chief marketing officer. “Paycom’s employees are caring, and committed to their community, so it’s not just Paycom, but the generosity of our employees that we really celebrate. Paycom and our employees, are grateful to be able to share our good fortune with Oklahomans in need and we are deeply honored to receive the Beacon Award. While Paycom makes charitable contributions to numerous worthy causes across the country, it is a special feeling to be recognized for our philanthropy in the state where Paycom was founded.”
The Journal Record recognized Paycom for its philanthropic efforts for the Salvation Army of Central Oklahoma, an international social services organization and Infant Crisis Services, who provide formula, food and diapers to babies and toddlers in times of crisis.
Thirty one Beacon honorees were recognized in large, medium and small divisions in two categories: charitable influence and philanthropic impact. All honorees were featured in the Beacon Awards magazine and recognized at the awards luncheon. The overall winners in each category also received a donation for the nonprofit they support.
“The Beacon Awards recognize those who ask for little recognition; the companies that give generously to help those in need as well as the organizations that make Oklahoma a great place to live,” said Ted Streuli, associate publisher and editor of The Journal Record. “Without their generosity, Oklahoma would suffer, and we at The Journal Record hope their efforts will inspire others.”
