Employee Spotlight: Meet Kate

Ashley Jezek | August 12, 2022

When Kate came to work at Paycom as a payroll specialist, she had no experience in that area beyond some accounting courses she took in college. She’s moved up to manager and works with one of Paycom’s core human resource products.

No obvious experience in a previous role? No problem! Paycom’s best-in-class training opportunities mean you can learn on the job just like Kate.

We interviewed her recently to learn more about why Paycom is a great fit for her.

Describe what you do.

I’m a product manager for Paycom’s Enhanced ACA (Affordable Care Act) product. I help try and make the product better and improve the user experience.

What’s your favorite thing about being in your department and/or role?

I love being able to work at making the software module better for clients to ensure that they remain compliant. Because ACA is so complicated, it’s a welcome challenge to make the module as easy to understand as possible.

What advice would you give a new employee about being successful at Paycom?

Be open to learning new things. I knew nothing about ACA when I started in 2013 but was able to learn so much through training and help from our legal advisers.

What’s the one word you would use to describe Paycom and why?

Opportunity! The company is growing rapidly, and there are so many opportunities to grow and be a leader.

What is your greatest accomplishment at Paycom?

Becoming a product manager for ACA was so exciting! I had been working with ACA and had so many ideas. Becoming the product manager allowed me to enhance the module and make it easier to use and understand.

What makes you proud to work at Paycom?

I’m proud to be part of a company that’s so innovative. It’s wonderful to be a part of the growth.

What hobbies do you enjoy in your free time?

I love spending time with my dogs and traveling to see my children.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

Definitely steak and baked potato with asparagus!
