Our Culture

Our values drive us forward.

Everything we do is rooted in our shared values. They are our North Star, our guiding light. They drive how we make decisions, treat each other, and define success.  




earn it, every day

Greatness isn’t bestowed. It’s earned. That means challenging ourselves and one another to be better. Because we don’t assume our competitors are satisfied either. We meet problems head-on and push through. We put in work because that’s what separates good from great.



growth fuels opportunity

Continuous growth is essential. But it’s not just about revenue. It’s about maximizing success by realizing our greatest potential — personally, professionally, organizationally, and for our clients. It’s about capitalizing on the opportunity for growth.



think next generation

The ideal response to the status quo is a continual hunger for something better. We will celebrate our victories, but we cannot — and will not — camp out there. We were made for more. We will tap into our curiosity, everywhere and at all times.



live the reputation

Integrity matters, and we do what we say. We build trust intentionally, through every interaction — with clients, partners, and each other. We speak and act with honesty and transparency. We own every decision, personally and collectively.



be unbeatable together

No one part is greater than the whole, no matter the role. “We” is what makes us different. We’re intentional about silo-busting and flattening out hierarchies. We hear, affirm, inspire, and challenge one another.



What we do, we do right and with integrity.

we champion diversity and inclusion

Stronger Together

We want to be a place where every employee has a voice and feels truly welcome, appreciated, free to be themselves, and empowered and enabled to do their best work. Our differences make us unique, and we actively support these differences and work to create communities within Paylocity through our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs). These groups are organized around shared characteristics, interests, and life experiences to provide employees the opportunity to build connections, have their ideas heard, and shape our culture to make a difference at work and within the community.
