Why Choose Paychex?

As the Managing Partner for SonderCare Behavioral Health, Larry Wiley was desperately looking for a payroll company that could handle complicated weekly payrolls and workers’ compensation for a rapidly growing organization when the pandemic first broke out. After having a bad experience with one payroll provider, Larry discovered Paychex, who not only helped SonderCare with their payroll needs, but gave Larry the confidence that his organization could double in size over the next year.
