Employee Spotlight: Meet Chris

Chris has been a Paycom Implementation Specialist since September 2014. Recently, I reached out and asked him to share his story.

Describe what you do.

My job title is Executive Implementation Specialist. What that boils down to is leading clients as they transition from their current payroll/HRIS system over to Paycom’s dynamic platform. I always like to say we translate a client’s processes into Paycom while offering best-practice solutions and process improvements along the way.

What advice would you give a new employee for being successful at Paycom?

I read an article once about the 10 things that require zero talent. They were things like “be on time,” “work ethic,” “be prepared” and “attitude.” These 10 things that lead to success really encompass everything it takes to be a successful Transition Specialist at Paycom. Even after four years, I learn new things every day.

What’s the one word you would choose to describe Paycom, and why?

“Exciting.” I love being a part of and relaying our vision to clients every day. It has also allowed me to travel, meet and work with people from all over the country. Also, the professional development opportunities are exciting personally.

What is your greatest accomplishment at Paycom?

I’d say my promotion to Executive Ultra-Care. This company has so many others in this position who are so impressive and have accomplished so much. Just being a part of this department is humbling.

What makes you proud to work at Paycom?

The growth. Not only the growth of the company financially, but also the personal growth and career trajectory Paycom affords.

Where has been your favorite place to travel, and why?

I can’t really pick one city. My top three, though, are Chicago; Charleston, South Carolina; and Miami. All three are beautiful cities with awesome cultures and lots of things to do. Also, my clients in all three places were fantastic. I learned a ton and enjoyed delivering a great product and experience to them.

What are some of your favorite hobbies outside of work?

I’m a big sports guy. I’m a big baseball fan – especially the Washington Nationals – and play in a wood bat league. I also enjoy golfing with friends, reading and podcasts, and I am learning to play the piano.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

It would have to be pasta. Super-unhealthy, I know, but my family is part Italian and I have always loved it.
