Positive Perks: Paycom’s Unique Benefits Explained

Abraham Mendieta | December 13, 2023

Miracles can happen. Your first job could be the dream job you stay with until retirement. But for most of us, the occasional job change is a fact of life.

There’s a lot to think about when you’re looking at prospective employers. You’ve already considered some of the biggest questions, like how much the job pays or if the job description fits your career path. But don’t forget to look closely at employee benefits.

For many professionals, Paycom’s comprehensive benefits championing well-being and growth are what tips the scale.

It’s no secret that working at Paycom comes with plenty of perks. From classic offerings like health insurance, 401(k) and paid leave to more unconventional perks like pet insurance, $4 catered lunches at our headquarters and on-site fitness facilities, Paycom goes the extra mile to encourage a healthy work-life balance.

Here are a few factors to consider about the benefits at Paycom.

Expanded health benefits

Choosing the right organization for you should include an assessment of its basic benefits package. But don’t stop there! Paycom adds dynamic perks designed to help support the whole employee.

Paycom offers $1-per-pay-period individual health insurance for all full-time employees, but physical health isn’t the only kind of health we’re concerned with. We also offer benefits addressing mental health needs, such as on-site well-being advisors. Our employee assistance programs connect our workforce with programs supporting child care, financial literacy and caregiving responsibilities.

Other health benefits Paycom provides include:

  • vision insurance
  • dental insurance
  • access to green spaces
  • on-site fitness center with classes, intramural leagues and state-of-the-art fitness equipment

How good are these unusual offerings? Paycom earned a Best Company Perks and Benefits award from Comparably for its innovative mental wellness resources and health and fitness programs.

Financial stability

Paycom understands financial wellness plays an important role both for the organization and the individuals it employs. An employee’s base salary is an important driver of financial wellness, but short- and long-term financial security is also important. That’s why Paycom offers benefits like:

  • matching 401(k) and employee stock purchase plan
  • low-cost basic life and AD&D insurance
  • college tuition savings plans

Family-building benefits

One of the most critical ways Paycom supports employees is through robust benefits offering support through the stages of family growth, including fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, adoption, surrogacy, new parenthood and returning to work after leave.

For new parents, Paycom offers resources that guide employees through pregnancy, adoption, postpartum, early pediatrics and an eventual return to work. Employees also have access to a discounted childcare platform offering full-time and part-time recurring care, occasional care and backup care from caregivers of their choice.

Paid time off

Paid family leave also extends into bereavement leave for family, friends and pets. With time to be present for family vacations, birth and mourning, as well as the time needed to care for others, employees can fully experience life both at and outside work.

Community impact

Many employees want to be part of an organization that actively invests in its community. A survey by Fidelity Investments showed 66% of respondents felt it was important for their employer to support charitable and philanthropic causes, and two-thirds said they’d be more willing to donate to such organizations if their employer offered a matching contribution.

Paycom has done just that with its employee giving program, a charitable initiative that allows employees to choose the charities they wish to support and have the donations automatically deducted during payroll. Our employees support USO, Boys & Girls Clubs, NAMI and more.

Paycom isn’t just innovating the HR tech industry; we’re also pushing the boundaries of what’s possible when it comes to supporting our workforce with benefits that enhance their lives.
