“The G2 Grid Report rankings validate our mission to support our clients every step of the way on their HR and payroll journey,” said Michael Haske, Paylocity President and COO. “We strive to help our clients streamline and automate manual HR and payroll processes which frees them up to focus on attracting and retaining talent. It doesn’t end there, that focus is augmented by our employee engagement tools which help our clients build culture by helping employees connect, communicate, and collaborate.” 

Streamline and Automate Manual Tasks 

Paylocity’s Core HR tools help companies streamline their HR processes using modern, mobile-enabled HR technology that saves time by automating key processes. Clients also appreciate tracking headcount and status for positions, viewing data to drive business decisions, and collecting employee documents all in one place. The platform helps solve the most basic HR and payroll needs while also providing robust reporting and data insights clients make better, more data-driven decisions. 

“It's easy to use and intuitive,” says Paylocity G2 reviewer Laura Araujo. “If you are not sure how to do something within the platform, the Customer Service team is excellent. They are continually updating their product. Tracking and managing information is easier with Paylocity. It's also nice that all elements of HR are streamlined and included in one place.” 

Attract and Retain Talent 

Streamlining and automating HR and payroll processes is the first step to get companies where they want to go. That frees up time to help teams focus on attracting and retaining talent. Paylocity gives employers and employees what they want and need when it comes to robust HR and payroll functionality while layering in modern experiences which entice employees to use the system more often. 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.  

Paylocity clients have reported great results engaging candidates with automated recruiting and onboarding software. They rely on human elements offered on the platform such as video job postings and text messaging to convey information while also allowing leaders to reinforce culture. And when new hires start, invitations to groups on Community and regular employee surveys make them feel welcome—even before day one. 

"I am able to streamline onboarding from multiple states pretty seamlessly," says Paylocity G2 reviewer Melissa McGuire. "That is a huge help and one of the best parts of Paylocity. To have everything pretty much in one area is fantastic. I like the ease of use. I can easily use all modules and I enjoy the continual improvements that Paylocity makes." 

Build Culture and Connection 

Employee experience is more important than ever in today’s work environment. Companies need to meet employees where they are and let them experience their company’s values. Modern employees want to be successful and grow in their roles but also, they also want to create connections, communicate, and collaborate with their co-workers. These needs were accelerated by the pandemic and Great Resignation.  

Reviewers using Paylocity features such as Community (a social collaboration hub), Premium Video Communications and Peer Recognition are creating a better sense of belonging for their employees. And new features across the platform to enable Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility are making an impact.  

"Paylocity's Community tool is a great communication tool to use for company announcements," says Paylocity G2 Reviewer Tina Carpenter. "I have been in the Human Resources field for 25+ years. Paylocity is by far one of the best HR/Payroll systems that I have ever used. I don't believe anyone who chooses Paylocity as a provider will be dissatisfied." 

Consistent Performance Across Markets 

Beyond seeing increasing momentum in the Enterprise segment, Paylocity's rankings in the mid-market have remained consistently strong for 15 consecutive quarters. And once again, the company achieved similar Leader ratings for the small business HRIS segment in 11 areas. 

In addition, Paylocity was named a Momentum Leader in 11 categories, recognizing its fast growth while maintaining a high level of customer satisfaction. Momentum leaders are ranked in the top 25% of their category's products.
