Employee Spotlight: Meet Jake

We interviewed one of our tax team leaders, Jake, to learn more about his Paycom journey.

Describe what you do.

I am a team leader over one of the Tax Setup teams. My team focuses on Powers of Attorneys (POAs) and Verifications. We make sure the POAs that the clients are signing are filled out correctly and get sent to the state and government agencies in a timely manner. We also take all of the tax information the client provides Paycom up front and call the states to verify that the information is accurate.

What is your favorite thing about your team?

My favorite thing about my team is how well they work together. They’re all willing to help one another, which ultimately helps our clients.

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

Don’t be afraid to speak up! If you see a process or a step in a process that could be improved, ask about it! Lots of great ideas come from new employees who are not used to doing things a certain way yet.

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

I have been here for over five years, and I have seen so much growth and change in this time! I think our products we offer our clients and our internal processes/programs are constantly being updated to make sure we stay ahead of the trends and keep ourselves in the front of the market.

What is your greatest accomplishment at Paycom?

I worked up from Ops Admin to now being a Tax Team Leader.

What makes you proud to work at Paycom?

I am proud that not only my department, but all departments at Paycom work together to ensure we’re taking care of our clients and getting their needs and their employees’ needs met timely.

What are some of your favorite hobbies outside of work?

I am in grad school going for my MBA. I’ll be done in June 2021, then I can start playing volleyball and kickball again! Until then, my hobbies include studying and homework!

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

I love salad, so a great salad with some chicken in it would be just fine for me every day!
