Our Culture

What we do, we do right and with integrity. Everything we do is rooted in our shared values. They are our North Star, our guiding light. They drive how we make decisions, treat each other, and define success.

Our values drive us forward.

earn it, every day

Greatness isn’t bestowed. It’s earned. That means challenging ourselves and one another to be better. Because we don’t assume our competitors are satisfied either. We meet problems head-on and push through. We put in the work because that’s what separates good from great.

growth fuels opportunity

Continuous growth is essential. But it’s not just about revenue. It’s about maximizing success by realizing our greatest potential — personally, professionally, organizationally, and for our clients. It’s about capitalizing on the opportunity for growth.

think next generation

The ideal response to the status quo is a continual hunger for something better. We will celebrate our victories, but we cannot — and will not — camp out there. We were made for more. We will tap into our curiosity, everywhere and at all times.

live the reputation

Integrity matters, and we do what we say. We build trust intentionally, through every interaction — with clients, partners, and each other. We speak and act with honesty and transparency. We own every decision, personally and collectively.

be unbeatable together

No one part is greater than the whole, no matter the role. “We” is what makes us different. We’re intentional about silo-busting and flattening out hierarchies. We hear, affirm, inspire, and challenge one another.

“I’ve attended several Culture Crew events and have enjoyed them all. They are a great way to connect with other employees and begin to build friendships with my coworkers.”

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Accessibility

At Paylocity, people matter most, and diversity of experience and perspective make us stronger together.

Over the past year, we continued to make significant strides in our DEIA journey and earned Forbes Best Employers for Diversity and Best Employers for Women recognition for the second year in a row.

We launched our first Women in Leadership conference and committee; kicked off our first Diversity in Sales Leadership roundtable; held our first Global Accessibility Awareness Day panel; hired a firm to conduct an accessibility audit of our entire organization; hosted numerous DEIA focus, listening, and roundtable groups; had employees participate in various women-in-leadership and racially diverse leadership conferences; continued to leverage our self-Identification functionality to gain a better understanding of our employee community for future DEIA efforts; and much more.

Employee Resource Groups

We’re committed to increasing diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility as we grow and innovate in an ever-evolving environment. Our employee resource groups are a crucial part of our effort to drive change by helping us create a culture where all employees feel respected, valued, and supported. Our ERGs give our people an effective way to inspire organizational change, improve our business practices, and empower our workforce. Our ERG leaders actively collaborate with, support, and develop their fellow ERG members to always “Live the Reputation.”

Executive Q&As

Transparent communication is vitally important to who we are and how we work. Our Executive Team hosts live recurring bi-weekly meetings where business initiatives and updates are shared with all our people and they can pose the questions that matter most to them directly to our senior leaders.


We want our employees to be connected and in the know, so at the beginning of each week our PCTY News broadcast shares the latest and greatest updates and need to know happenings from across the business so everyone has access to the information they need.
