Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of integrated human capital management solutions for payroll, HR, retirement, and insurance services, has been recognized by Selling Power magazine on its 2017 50 Best Companies to Sell For list. In its fifth consecutive appearance on the list, Paychex ranked number five, moving up from the number seven spot last year.

“We are proud to receive this recognition. Moving into the top five on this list reflects Paychex’s commitment to creating a culture that is entrepreneurial, results-oriented, and employee- and client-focused,” said Mark Bottini, Paychex senior vice president of sales. “Our employees are passionate about helping small and midsize businesses succeed, and we’re proud to give them the training, tools, robust product line, and compensation that helps them achieve their goals year after year. This is a great place to grow a career. We think it’s a culture and company like no other.”

Methodology To determine rankings, the Selling Power research team evaluated applications that focused on three broad categories:

  • Compensation and benefits
  • Hiring, sales training, and sales enablement
  • Customer retention

The list encompasses companies of all sizes, with sales forces ranging from fewer than 100 salespeople to companies with salesforce numbers in the thousands, like Paychex.

Selling Power magazine founder and publisher Gerhard Gschwandtner says it is vital to recognize companies that are creating excellent sales teams today.

“Salespeople face great challenges in a digital era,” said Gschwandtner. “As I have reported at the Sales 3.0 Conference and in Selling Power magazine, not only is it harder to get the attention of customers in an age of distractions, but many simple sales jobs are also becoming obsolete due to advances in technology. To succeed, salespeople need the support of great leadership and management. The companies that appear on the Selling Power 50 Best Companies to Sell For list represent great opportunities for salespeople who are motivated to win and focused on success.”
