Paycor Onboarding empowers us to drive employee engagement and excitement while automating all of the paperwork. And making the switch has saved us time—about 80 hours a year.

With our previous HR & Payroll provider, EEO-1 reporting wasn’t included in our package. Because I did manual reporting for 400+ employees, it took me almost an entire week to get it done. With Paycor, our EEO-1 reporting is finished after only a few clicks.

We have more than 100 employees in three different communities. It was getting to be a two-day process every two weeks to run our payroll.

We’ve been very happy with Paycor in the time that we’ve been using the software. I appreciate the quarterly shout outs and emails from our Paycor rep to see if we need anything. It’s a real game changer.
