Paychex Named to Selling Power’s Annual “50 Best Companies to Sell For” List in 2020

July 10, 2020

Paychex ranks number four on the 2020 Selling Power list, its fourth straight year in the top five.

For the eighth consecutive year, Paychex, Inc. has been named to the Selling Power 50 Best Companies to Sell For 2020 list. Each year, the corporate research team at Selling Power magazine assembles and publishes this list, which is now in its 20th consecutive year. Paychex ranks number four on the 2020 list, its fourth straight year in the top five.

Paychex senior vice president of sales Mark Bottini says the company’s position on the list reflects the continued focus on providing everything sales professionals need to navigate any business environment, accelerate through change, and execute on their goals. “From superior training programs to sales enablement tools to a robust product suite, the Paychex sales force is supported with the resources they need to provide solutions to America’s businesses.” He adds that the challenges of the past few months make the honor especially meaningful. “COVID-19 has brought disruption to the way we all live and work, and business owners are faced with unprecedented challenges. Our sales professionals – who are thriving in a work-from-home environment – are armed with a portfolio of solutions that help businesses overcome these challenges by equipping their employees with tools to stay connected and productive in the new work environment while allowing them to maintain compliance.”

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

To gather data, the Selling Power research team issued a comprehensive application with detailed sections covering the categories of:

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

Sections were also provided for companies to spotlight any other information about their sales organization and culture that would help the research team fine-tune the rankings.

Selling Power magazine founder and publisher Gerhard Gschwandtner says this list is a critical tool for sales professionals to evaluate their options in an era of extreme change. “Recent shakeups around the globe mean more top sales talent is available to hire, and potential candidates need tools to help weigh options and guide their career choices,” he says. “Each company on this list has created a winning sales culture in its own unique way, with the right tools in place to support a growth-orientated sales career over the long haul.”
