Paycor Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators

Paycor is a human capital management (HCM) software that provides cloud-based onboarding, HR, payroll, and timekeeping software capabilities. Paycor’s HCM platform modernizes every aspect of managing the people in organizations, from the initial recruitment, retainment, and paying them via payroll. Paycor’s HCM software makes managing day-to-day operations easier via applicant tracking, reducing administrative tasks for open enrollment and benefits, to keeping an eye on payroll costs.

Paycor Recent Developments

In September 2021, Paycor added an enhancement to their HCM solution—an Immunization Tracker that helps business leaders manage and track the immunization status of their employees. Workers can upload proof of vaccination, or a negative COVID test directly to the system, and HR leaders can run a report to see immunization status across the organization. This new feature will help ensure businesses are compliant with impending employment policies and positions Paycor as one of the first HCM providers to offer an immunization tracker that is fully integrated into their platform.

In April 2021, Paycor launched the Recognition feature as part of the HR product offering, allowing leaders and peers to recognize the efforts of their teams directly through the platform. This feature provides leaders with another method of motivating and engaging their teams.

"In July 2020, Paycor launched Paycor Pulse, an employee engagement solution that utilizes Natural Language Processing (NLP Artificial Intelligence) to immediately turn written data into valuable insights around Employee Sentiment, enabling leaders to get ahead of potential problems like turnover and low morale. This announcement furthers Paycor's commitment to providing human resources (HR) and business leaders the tools they need to navigate the new reality of work.

In March 2020, Paycor unveiled Open Enrollment Wizard, a new feature of Paycor’s benefits administration software that streamlines the open enrollment process for small to medium-sized businesses (SMB) from start to finish, providing a step-by-step guide through the design, set-up, and execution of any open enrollment event. With the launch of this new tool, Paycor continues to deliver on its promise to provide business leaders with best-in-class technology and industry-leading expertise to streamline human resources (HR) processes so leaders can focus on their strategic goals and gain a deeper understanding of their business.

Furthermore, the same year, Paycor launched its new Scheduling and Scheduling Pro solutions that enhance its Time and Attendance offers. Paycor’s scheduling solutions help organizations take control of labor costs as well as optimize staff to increase efficiency and productivity by simplifying and automating the processes for scheduling employees.

In January 2018, Paycor created an HR Center of Excellence, an online resource hub to help HR leaders and their teams build employee evangelism and make a lasting impact on their companies. The HR Center of Excellence was created to help HR professionals extend their reach and unlock their potential. Based on user group sessions, one-on-one interviews with HR professionals and business leaders, third-party research, survey data and insights from more than 36,000 small and medium businesses who use Paycor, the HR Center of Excellence provide advice, inspiration and action items HR leaders need to make a difference in their organizations."
