Developing a Career Through Employee Training at Paycom

Bonny Calfy | August 2, 2023

Pick a co-worker, any co-worker.

Go ahead; we’ll wait.

Now imagine you’re standing side by side with said co-worker.

According to Korn Ferry, by the year 2025, at least one of you will need to develop new skills to take on an entirely new position. It’s called reskilling, and for an estimated 50% of the workforce, that drastic development will be an important step in their professional journeys.

For some organizations, this statistic paints a scary picture of an uncertain future. But at Paycom, we understand employee development is an essential part of every career. That’s why we offer multiple ways for our employees to benefit from training and upskilling.

Developing specialized skills

At some point in our lives, each of us has taken the time to learn a new and very specific skill. Maybe we learned it at home, at school or at work. Even something as trivial as learning to tie our shoes was once a big milestone in our skill-building journey. These opportunities serve as stepping stones to bigger and better things at home and at work.

There’s no telling where your professional journey will go, but it will likely include time spent building new skills or mastering different concepts. No matter what you learn, expanding your professional capacity is the key to progress.

At Paycom, we know development plays a huge role not only in people’s professional lives, but also in their overall happiness. That’s why our in-house teams of educators and content specialists create the employee training needed to support employees across the organization.

Training emerging and experienced leaders alike

Paycom understands that as employees grow, their career paths may include stepping into roles with more responsibility. For many employees, these new opportunities come with the new challenge of leadership.

For new and experienced leaders in management positions, Paycom offers a variety of leadership training programs to help them discover or develop those skill sets and make the most of the opportunities these new positions offer.

While having a larger pool of leaders is always good for Paycom, it’s just another way to set our employees up for success, wherever life takes them. According to LinkedIn Learning, management and leadership are two of the most sought-after skills, regardless of industry.

Paycom provides a variety of leadership training programs available to all employees. These include Base Camp, SLII and the Paycom LEAD Program. Many of our leadership offerings are traditional, in-classroom experiences, but we also offer self-paced, mobile-friendly training modules through Paycom Learning. These programs allow our workforce to elevate their skills at their own pace and convenience.

Supporting the whole employee

Supporting our employees isn’t simply a matter of being in their corner during work hours. Paycom is proud to provide its workforce services and programs that support them as individuals and help them succeed at home as well as in the office. Some of these offerings include:

  • mental health supports including in-house well-being advisors, privacy booths for easier virtual appointments, guided meditation and a $0 copay for in-network therapy and counseling
  • employee resource groups providing employee-led fellowship and opportunities to support our diversity, equity and inclusion strategy
  • no-cost access to financial literacy programs
  • benefits for families addressing fertility, pregnancy, adoption, surrogacy and returning to work after leave

When you imagine your future, what sort of employee development plays into your plans? If you want to be part of a company that is ready to invest in your development, apply to Paycom today!
