Paylocity's founder, Steve Sarowitz outlines his entire business philosophy with just five words: "Happy employees mean happy clients."

The office dress code and atmosphere are casual and that's just fine.

"But don't let the casual atmosphere fool you;" says Sarowitz, "We have very high standards."

Our commitment to all around excellence and customer service is made possible by hiring the best and brightest people and fostering an atmosphere where they can thrive and grow.

No wonder Paylocity has been on the Inc. 5000 list of one of the Fastest Growing Privately-held Companies eight years in a row, and an six-time winner of Chicago's Best & Brightest Companies to Work For. We are also a four-time winner of one of the Best Places to Work in Illinois.

"The way I see it," Sarowitz says, "We have one of the most important jobs around. We make sure people get their paychecks​​
