The Oklahoman Names Paycom Oklahoma’s Top Workplace of 2016
OKLAHOMA CITY – Paycom Software Inc. (“Paycom”) (NYSE: PAYC), a leading provider of comprehensive, cloud-based human capital management software, has been awarded the title of Top Workplace in Oklahoma for 2016 by The Oklahoman.
Paycom, now on the list for a fourth consecutive year, also received special recognition, earning The Oklahoman’s Direction award. This additional award comes as a result of feedback from employees, who believe the company is going in the right direction.
“Culture can and should be an important factor when deciding if your employer is a long-term fit,” said Stacey Pezold, Paycom’s chief operating officer. “Our employees thrive on collaboration, yet flourish in an environment that celebrates their individuality.”
The Top Workplaces competition is based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics LLC. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including pay and benefits, company values, confidence in leadership, culture, employee engagement and growth opportunities.
Paycom performed well in each category because it promotes a strong work-life balance for its employees, offers needed benefits at affordable costs, and listens to and engages with its workforce.
“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day: the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.”
Paycom’s founder and CEO, Chad Richison, said the company’s Top Workplaces honor is especially meaningful because it is based on employee feedback.
“Like all successful companies, our greatest asset is our people,” Richison said. “We try very hard to improve the lives of our staff, and we are delighted that is reflected in these results.”
