July 2, 2021

Paychex is known for payroll — it’s in the name. But behind the name is also one of the largest providers of HR services for small and medium-sized businesses. The country’s largest 401(k) plan recordkeeper. And a top-30 insurance agency. We’ve grown to become these irreplaceable components of the American economy, and more, through one consistent driving force — innovation. It started with our founder, the legendary entrepreneur Tom Golisano, driving down Main Street recognizing that small businesses would benefit from automated payroll and taxes. No payroll provider at the time would serve businesses of that size. He saw a need and built our company to be the first to meet it.
