DC Rochester Top Workplaces 2016

Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of integrated human capital management solutions for payroll, HR, retirement, and insurance services, has been awarded a 2016 Top Workplaces honor by the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. The Top Workplaces list is based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC, a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including alignment, execution, and connection.


“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together.” Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

“We’re so proud to receive this honor here in our hometown,” said Martin Mucci, Paychex president and chief executive officer. “We have more than 4,000 employees in Rochester, representing nearly a third of our global base, and it’s important that they feel Paychex is a great place to work. As a service business that relies on people working together to do our very best for our clients, our communities, and each other, it’s important we give our employees opportunities to grow their careers in an environment that’s fun, challenging, and rewarding.”
