Chad Richison, Paycom founder and CEO

In 1998, the World Wide Web wasn’t yet a household necessity, but something that tied up phone lines. However, that didn’t stop Chad Richison from bringing his idea of businesses seamlessly processing payroll entirely online to life with Paycom. From the days of dial-up internet to the smartphone boom and beyond, Richison has led Paycom through every major electronic advancement of the 21st century. Throughout the evolution, Richison has maintained a belief that HR tech is at its most effective when employees use the technology to enter and own their own data just as they do as everyday consumers. With the company’s recent launch of Beti®, a revolutionary, employee-driven payroll experience, Paycom continues to reflect his vision and prove how HR technology can transform an organization for the better.

Richison’s focus on an employee-centric HR experience has made Paycom an industry-leading technology. His position makes him intimately familiar with the trends of technology and its impact on the workforce. To celebrate the HR Break Room® podcast’s 100th episode, Richison shares his insight on how consumer trends may influence the HR industry from here.

In this episode of HR Break Room, Richison and host Caleb Masters discuss:

  • the legacy of Paycom and how its vision has evolved
  • how the everyday use of apps positively impacts businesses
  • how employee-driven technology strengthens an organization
  • why a continued employee focus represents the future of work
