Rochester, N.Y. (August 11, 2023) – Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of integrated human capital management software solutions for human resources, employee benefits, insurance services, and payroll, has been recognized by TrustRadius with a 2023 Tech Cares Award for the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs and community impact. This is the third time that TrustRadius has recognized Paychex in the annual awards program that serves as a trust indicator for buyers in the tech community looking to work with brands that demonstrate a strong commitment to enabling more sustainable and equitable communities.     

“Paychex demonstrates a genuine dedication to fostering well-being, supporting communities, and creating a better world for us all,” said Megan Headley, VP of Research at TrustRadius. “The company’s strategic framework, powered by the Paychex Charitable Foundation, has made a significant impact on mental health, physical health, financial health, and professional skills development.”

Over the past year, Paychex has furthered the company’s commitment to doing good—for employees, clients, and communities. In 2023, the Paychex Charitable Foundation implemented a strategic giving framework to support workers of U.S. businesses with a focus on well-being, addressing mental health, physical health, financial health, and professional skills development. Four $1 million gifts were committed to Mental Health America, Feeding America, Junior Achievement USA, and National Urban League. In addition to the financial gifts from the Paychex Charitable Foundation, Paychex has engaged the company’s 16,000 employees as a volunteer network where they live and work, and will help advance the mission of each of the four not-for-profit organizations in key markets where Paychex has a high concentration of employees.

The Tech Cares Award serves as a trust indicator for buyers in the tech community. When a company receives this recognition, it demonstrates a commitment to corporate social responsibility. Buyers can feel more confident and assured when considering products or services from these award-winning organizations. The key areas of social corporate responsibility TrustRadius focused on were:

  • Volunteerism
  • Robust diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs
  • Charitable donations and fundraising
  • Workplace culture, including model support for in-office and remote employees
  • Demonstrable support for environmental sustainability

“Paychex is focused on corporate initiatives that will drive impact for social good within the communities where our customers and employees live and work,” said Stephanie Schaeffer, chief legal and ethics officer at Paychex. “It’s an honor to be recognized by TrustRadius with a Tech Cares Award for our commitment to corporate social responsibility by bringing our corporate values of service, integrity, and accountability to life.”

In addition to its charitable work, Paychex has strengthened its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The company expanded its Employee Resource Business Groups (ERBGs) to align with Paychex culture and values, introduced new employee training courses, and continued to increase racially diverse hires.
