“When starting at Paylocity, I didn’t think culture would be able to come through a Zoom meeting, but I was proven wrong!” says Kaslin Burchardt, HCM Account Executive at Paylocity. “And, coming to our corporate headquarters brought it all together. The vibes and energy are so bright and positive, and it reflects in the product itself. I’m very grateful for this new adventure with such an amazing company. The future is bright!”

According to Paylocity, “No one part is greater than the whole, no matter the role.” The company values its people — those who make Paylocity what it is — affirming, inspiring and challenging employees. “Everyone has something unique to offer,” Paylocity says.

The cutting-edge HR and payroll tech company says that “people have always been at the heart of our business.” Now, Paylocity boasts a 60% remote workforce, giving employees the space and flexibility they need.

Paylocity’s strong values.

“Everything we do is rooted in our shared values,” Paylocity says. “They are our North Star, our guiding light. They drive how we make decisions, treat each other and define success.”

For Paylocity, their values fall into five categories:

  1. Earn it, everyday.

  2. Growth fuels opportunity.

  3. Think of the next generation.

  4. Live the reputation.

  5. Be unbeatable, together.

These values are at the center of the company’s success and actions, both internally and externally. Paylocity is an ally to the LGBTQ+ community, supports the Black community in educating and influencing change for good and stands with the Asian, Asian American and Pacific Islander community against race-motivated acts of hate and violence.

Paylocity focuses on partnering with nonprofits that promote workforce development and education/literacy for persons with disabilities and disadvantaged individuals, as well as supporting programs that focus on STEM-based learning to enhance students’ skills and opportunities.

Aligned with this, Paylocity provides paid time off for Volunteers in Action and signature program funding. They also prioritize mental health by running campaigns and promoting education for greater mental health awareness. 

Another value Paylocity promotes is education, because “education and literacy can unlock the doors to success.” To that end, the company offers The Peter J. McGrail Scholarship, supporting the children of their employees in their pursuit of higher education.

Paylocity’s DE&I efforts.

Paylocity seeks to “create transparent and diverse cultures that welcome the whole employee”, noting that “a data-informed and mindful approach to DE&I can make people comfortable to do their best work.”

“Transparency is an important part of the diversity, equity, and inclusion journey, so we are sharing annual data to help our employees, clients, and partners see where we stand today,” Paylocity says. “We are proud of the progress made so far, but know there is much work still to be done.” In regards to the company’s progress in regards to gender diversity, their workforce is currently 48.6% women and 51.3% men.

To help promote and build connections and shared experiences, Paylocity also provides a collection of employee resource groups (ERGs) and other initiatives and programs. For instance, the company has numerous diversity, equity and inclusion policies and programs.
