Corporate Responsibility

We have a responsibility…  

To give back to our local communities, enriching their livelihoods as they do ours. To give our clients more than just the best solutions for their business, but also helping them do business the right way. To support our employees beyond the workplace, focusing on improving their environment at work and in our community.  To be a good steward of the environment, responsibly operating our business to make a positive impact on the planet.

At Paychex, our clients depend on us to understand their needs and guide them to the right human capital management solutions that drive value and growth in their business.  Today, we serve more than 670,000 clients – organizations of various sizes in many industries.  Along the way, we’ve learned that a key ingredient to our success and that of our clients is a commitment to corporate responsibility. 

Corporate responsibility is a deeply rooted belief at Paychex that recognizes the importance of being a good corporate citizen. It lives in everything we do, from investing in our employees and giving back to our local communities, to guiding our clients to responsible business solutions and being a good steward of the environment.

The personification of our commitment to corporate responsibility is our nearly 16,000 employees.  I am extremely proud of the work our employees do every day in communities across the country.  Each year, our employees personally donate their time, talents, and treasure to thousands of local charitable organizations, educational initiatives, and community programs.  In addition, the Paychex Charitable Foundation has awarded more than $2.5 million in grants to nonprofits in our communities since it was founded in fiscal 2016.

I invite you to review our corporate responsibility initiatives and learn more about the good work we’re doing each day.

Thank you,

Martin Mucci
President and Chief Executive Officer
Paychex, Inc.
