Paylocity Continues as Overall Leader in G2 Spring Grid Report for 18th Consecutive Quarter

March 30, 2023

Paylocity ranks as a Spring 2023 Grid Report Leader across 12 categories by G2, the world’s leading business solutions review website.

G2 has named Paylocity an overall leader in all 12 human capital management (HCM) product categories in its Spring 2023 Grid Reports, marking 18 consecutive quarters in which Paylocity achieved its leader ranking. Paylocity continues to be the #1 overall choice in six critical categories, including Core HR.

This trend extends Paylocity’s high rankings and leadership on the world’s largest tech marketplace.  In February, Paylocity was named as the #1 overall HR software in G2’s annual Best Software awards. It also placed as #4 best overall software product for 2023, beating out hundreds of other software suppliers in ERP, CRM, customer support, and numerous other categories.

Paylocity has an overall 4.4 (out of 5) rating based on more than 2,200 client reviews, including recognition as a leader in the Enterprise, Mid-Market and Small Business segments. G2 bases its leader ranking on high customer satisfaction levels and greater likelihood to recommend ratings from verified Paylocity users on G2, the world’s leading business solutions review website.

“Paylocity lets me do HR. Period. It lets me handle the human side of human resources,” says Wade Larson, Chief Human Resources Officer at Wagstaff. “We’ve streamlined over 50% of total HR hours with Paylocity. How do you put a price on that level of automation?”

Paylocity ranked as a leader in the following categories:

  • Core HR *
  • Performance Management *
  • Time Tracking *
  • Onboarding *
  • Corporate Learning Management Systems *
  • Workforce Management *
  • Human Resource Management Systems
  • Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS)
  • Benefits Administration
  • Expense Management
  • Travel & Expense
  • Payroll

* Indicates #1 Overall Leader in category

“Leading the G2 Grid Reports for 18 straight quarters is a testament to the power of our technology and the incredible people here who work hard to make Paylocity the most modern employee-focused platform in the market,” said Rachit Lohani, Chief Technology Officer, Paylocity. “Seeing Paylocity rise to the top in more categories is a wonderful recognition of everything we strive for. We are always excited to see new ways in which our solutions can improve the productivity of clients.”

#1 Best HR Product for 2023

Paylocity was named the #1 best HR software for 2023 by G2. Coupled with our continued leadership in the quarterly G2 Grid Reports, it’s clear that Paylocity leads the pack with verified users.

“Paylocity is user friendly, easy to learn, and does much of the work for us,” says G2 reviewer Deborah Westbrook. “Our Paylocity account manager is always friendly and extremely helpful. He makes himself available for our questions as much as possible.”

Streamlining and automating recruiting, applicant tracking, and onboarding are essential parts of the modern workforce experience. Today’s always-connected employees want to belong and feel empowered to grow, and they increasingly expect a work experience that resembles the apps and technologies they use in their personal lives. These needs come to life in the competitive job market, where employers are finding better ways to make a powerful first impression and connect with candidates from the start.

This leadership on G2 further supports Paylocity’s investment in its people and platform. Earlier this month, Paylocity announced the addition of AI Assist to Community, Paylocity’s social collaboration hub, which is an integrated part of the Paylocity platform that improves communication and fosters employee connection, earlier this month. This marks a landmark achievement in HR technology with the integration of generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) into its core HCM platform. AI Assist gives HR professionals, leaders, and employees the power to create highly effective communications in less time.

G2 is the world’s largest tech marketplace where businesses can discover, review, and manage the technology they need to reach their potential. G2's Market Reports provide unmatched insights into the industry's leading — and trending — software and services, enabling buyers to compare aggregated review scores, gauge sentiment, and make better, more informed software purchasing decisions.
