Paychex, Inc. is an American company that specializes in integrated solutions for HR, payroll, benefits, and similar matters. Primarily serving small to medium-sized businesses, Paychex offers a comprehensive suite of products and services that help employers manage their workforce effectively and in line with employees' expectations, as well as with regulatory standards. The company is headquartered in Rochester, New York, and its shares are traded on the Nasdaq.

Started with $3,000

Paychex was founded in 1971 by B. Thomas Golisano. He started the company with just $3,000 and a vision to make payroll outsourcing easy and affordable for small businesses. Initially operating out of a small office in Rochester, New York, Paychex focused on providing payroll services to small businesses.

This market was largely underserved by larger payroll service providers at the time, allowing the company to grow rapidly. By the late 1970s, Paychex had expanded its operations nationwide. Over the years, Paychex evolved its service offerings, incorporating HR, benefits, and insurance services, adapting to the changing needs of its growing client base. Over the years, Paychex has established itself as a major player in human capital management solutions together with names such as ADP, Workday, and Intuit.

Beyond payroll, Paychex also offers a broad spectrum of human resource (HR) services.
