Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of payroll, human resource, insurance, and benefits outsourcing solutions for small- to medium-sized businesses, today announced it has been named to Forbes Magazine’s list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies, coming in at #76.

The 100 companies included on the list are ranked by Innovation Premium – the premium the stock market gives a company because investors expect it to launch new offerings, utilize existing resources more efficiently, or enter new markets that will generate even bigger income streams in the future.

“We’re honored to be included among this list of great innovators,” said Martin Mucci, Paychex president and CEO. “Paychex is focused on delivering solutions to our clients that combine innovative technology with exceptional customer service – all while driving growth for the company and expanding the markets we serve.”

This is Paychex’s first appearance on the World’s Most Innovative Companies list, which has been published annually since 2011. Paychex is the only company named in the business and personal services industry.
