Paycom Receives Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award

Bonny Calfy | April 3, 2023

Today’s employees expect an engaging culture where they can grow and thrive, but the “great resignation” — and now quiet quitting — signal that many people aren’t engaged at work. That’s left job hunters hesitant to dive headfirst into an opportunity before understanding the organization’s culture, values and stability.

It pays to seek out an employer with high employee engagement, but according to the analytics and advisory company Gallup, only 21% of employees worldwide are engaged.

By contrast, the Gallup Exceptional Workplace Awards have an average engagement rate of 72%! The awards honor organizations that integrate engagement into their workplace culture. Paycom was named a 2023 winner for its high level of employee engagement.

Here are three ways Paycom fosters an engaging culture for team members.

Cultivating culture

Company cultures vary; they win when they prioritize employee growth and adhere to clear, compelling core values.

Paycom offers reskilling, upskilling and leadership development opportunities and benefits like competitive pay, paid family leave and on-site fitness centers and wellness advisors. Values like innovation, service and giving mean opportunities to give back to inclusive organizations. Employees find meaning in our purpose statement: We create technology that simplifies life for others.

“As we continue to innovate in delivering the very best HR technology, we believe that our people are our greatest asset,” said Jennifer Kraszewski, vice president of human resources at Paycom. “We’ve built a culture where employees are valued and empowered. It’s an honor to be recognized by Gallup as one of the very best in the world in fostering a culture of engagement.”

Empowering employees

What does it mean to empower an employee?

When employees are empowered, they feel confident in their ability to grow, learn and bring their sincere selves to work each day.

Paycom understands the impact of strong, driven teams. By empowering teams and their leaders to build bonds with regular meetings, outings or friendly inter-office competitions, Paycom creates numerous opportunities to connect.

When describing the 2023 winners, Gallup noted, “Winners of the Gallup Exceptional Workplace Award put their people’s engagement at the heart of their business strategy and create a workplace culture to match.”

An empowered workforce is an engaged one.

Inclusion is important

Every voice has value, and organizations that understand this see increased engagement and boosted retention and innovation.

Through Paycom’s Better Conversations series, the organization encourages team members to explore important discussion topics such as mental wellness, social justice, working parents and more. In addition, Paycom has newly formed Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) led by employees passionate about equity and community. ERGs create a safe space where employees can bring their whole selves to work.

If you are looking for a workplace that recognizes your excellence and encourages you to grow and achieve, apply to Paycom today!
