This marks the eighth-consecutive appearance for the Oklahoma-based company, who joins other independent American entrepreneurial companies such as Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft and Pandora on the 2013 list of best run, most innovative and most inspiring private companies in America.
“Being an eight-year honoree is humbling and I’m honored that Paycom was once again recognized by Inc. magazine,” Paycom Founder and CEO Chad Richison said. “This accolade is a testament to our focus on providing a great product and employee experience. We are fortunate to be where we are today, roughly 15 years after the company was founded.”

“The Inc. 5000 was harder to get into this year than ever in its history,” Inc. Magazine Editor and Chief Eric Schurenberg said. “The median company on the list increased sales more than 140 percent since the start of 2010, while the average honoree grew a mind-boggling 468 percent. Those are results most companies could only dream of in the economy of the past three years.”
