Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of HR, payroll, benefits, and insurance solutions, has earned recognition as a “Top HR Product of the Year” by Human Resource Executive magazine and the HR Technology Conference & Exposition for the remote workforce enablement solutions included in its cloud-based SaaS platform, Paychex Flex®. The award, which spotlights groundbreaking innovations driving the HR technology market, will be presented as part of the annual HR Technology Conference, which is taking place virtually October 27-30, 2020.

“While HR technology has been enabling productivity and driving better business outcomes in organizations for many years, the pandemic has reinforced the critical role tech must play in facilitating workforce productivity, employee engagement, and compliance for businesses of all shapes and sizes,” said Tom Hammond, Paychex VP of corporate strategy and product management. “We’re honored by this recognition from the HR Executive and the HR Tech Conference. As the HR landscape continues to quickly evolve, we’re confident the solutions we develop will help organizations embrace and adapt to the future of work, which has only been accelerated by COVID-19.”

Paychex has taken a leadership role in helping businesses navigate the COVID-19 pandemic with its comprehensive COVID-19 Help Center, its extensive and ongoing training for HR professionals, and the product strategy and technology investments its made to address pandemic-related challenges, including cashflow disruption, remote workforce productivity, onsite employee health and safety, and new compliance requirements.

The solutions highlighted as part of the company’s winning demo include:

  • Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Solutions: To date, Paychex has furnished 500,000 PPP reports for customers and helped them secure more than $28 billion in PPP loans with the PPP Application Report, forgiveness calculator, and signature-ready forgiveness application capability.
  • HR Conversations: Helps to foster remote employee engagement by conducting pulse check-ins to help ensure workload balance, safety, and well-being.
  • HR Connect: Allows employees and managers to submit cases (such as a workplace accident) that allows for a seamless transition to an OSHA-reportable incident and automates OSHA 300 reporting.
  • Document Management: Automates employer distribution of policies and procedures, such as pandemic-specific work from home policies and allows employers to virtually collect employee acknowledgment and documentation.
  • Time Management: Allows an employee to punch from anywhere on any device (desktop/mobile/Apple Watch) and easily manage time by integrating personal calendars with Flex Time, eliminating the need to log in to Flex.
  • Digital Payments: Allows employers to leverage Real-Time Payments capabilities to process payroll on their desired check date and fund employee direct deposits within seconds.

“The business and people challenges that have arisen with the pandemic have impacted all organizations. From shifting to remote work to managing challenging financial conditions and keeping employees connected to the organization, these are novel and unprecedented circumstances,” said Steve Boese, chair of the HR Tech Conference. “The Paychex Flex Remote Workforce Enablement set of solutions address many of these new challenges with new capabilities to manage and enable the move to remote work, manage important business documents completely virtually, and help organizations navigate programs like the Paycheck Protection Program. Finally, Paychex enables real-time payments, a critical tool to help manage cash flow.”
