Paycom, a leading provider of comprehensive, cloud-based human capital management software delivered as Software-as-a-Service, again earned the right to be named one of Oklahoma’s top workplaces after being ranked the second-best place to work on The Oklahoman’s 2015 Top Workplaces list.
The accolade, a feat Paycom has accomplished for three straight years, was accompanied by another distinction as Paycom’s founder and CEO, Chad Richison, earned the Large Business Leadership Award.
“We recognize we are only as good as the collective commitment, innovation and expertise of our people and are thankful for their continued contributions,” said Richison.
The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by the Pennsylvania-based WorkplaceDynamics LLC. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured in the anonymous survey, including alignment, execution and connection.
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. Paycom offers its employees subsidized catered lunches daily; a free, on-premise gym and fitness classes; and extensive training opportunities. Paycom employees and their families also have the opportunity to attend numerous events, highlighted by the annual Year-End Party.
“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.”
