Working in HR Tech at Paycom

Bonny Calfy | August 11, 2023

If you’ve even thought about a job in technology, you know the right opportunity (in the right workplace) will take your career to the next level. After all, you have a chance to create and manage hardware and software that transforms lives through solving complex challenges.

Working in HR tech provides more than just a chance to do this — it’s something you do constantly through the employees you empower. HR isn’t tied to a specific industry. It’s a vital component of any business aiming for significant and long-term success.

And at a company like Paycom, you’ll innovate and collaborate every day, making a positive impact on people’s lives by helping them:

  • communicate quickly and efficiently
  • train and upskill with ease
  • get paid accurately and on time
  • simplify their work
  • stay compliant
  • and much more

Are you considering a role in HR tech? Because you should be. Here’s why.

What is HR tech?

Ideally, HR tech automates and simplifies tasks associated with:

  • payroll
  • scheduling
  • recruitment
  • benefits administration
  • performance management
  • workforce development
  • and more

But not all HR tech is built the same. Some require HR to use different systems that don’t communicate with each other. Paycom, however, provides everything HR and employees need to manage their work lives in a single software with one login and password.

Ultimately, the right HR tech will prioritize security, convenience and, most importantly, employees.

How is a career in HR tech purposeful?

You make a direct, positive impact on real people while working in HR tech. With any career, you should assess your values and identify how what you accomplish influences the world at large.

Take employees, for example: Nearly 3 in 5 Americans would struggle if just $100 were missing from their check, according to a Morning Consult study commissioned by Paycom. If you help develop employee-guided payroll tech, you also help ensure no employee has to make a difficult decision about their livelihood over a payroll error.

Your ability to innovate is invaluable for HR pros, too. When they’re stuck completing tasks manually, HR has less time to focus on the human side of their jobs. But check out the results of a Total Economic Impact™ study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Paycom: The HR team for a composite company made up of interviewed clients used Paycom to recover 2,600 hours per year.

Working in HR tech has a rippling effect. By creating and maintaining tools that help others work, you support countless professionals helping other people. Whether it’s preventing devastating payroll issues or just making clocking in easier, whatever you do makes a powerful impact.

What types of careers can I have at an HR tech company?

HR tech careers aren’t limited to just coding, testing or any other specific task. For a company like Paycom to flourish, we need talented people with an array of skills in:

  • sales
  • marketing
  • customer service
  • software engineering
  • training
  • leadership

We also know our success doesn’t just depend on releasing new products or finding ways to make things faster. Paycom team members achieve great things because we share a purpose: to create technology that simplifies life for employees.

How do long and stable careers help people grow?

At work, stability and longevity require two things: a supportive culture with a proven track record and opportunities for advancement. Unfortunately, the top reason employees leave is because a lack of career growth, according to Gallup.

Luckily, Paycom employees enjoy both. Earlier this year, Newsweek recognized us as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces for our collaborative culture, network of internal support and top-notch benefits. A few of our great perks include:

  • $1-per-pay-period individual health insurance
  • 401(k)s with generous matching
  • paid vacation, holidays, family and sick leave
  • an employee stock purchase plan
  • and more

Plus, Paycom offers our innovators a place to grow, learn and thrive. Paycom helps employees gain valuable leadership qualities that benefit them beyond a single role. Whether in our industry or community, Paycom doesn’t just produce effective leaders — we’re made of them.
