Flying Pig Paycor Half Marathon Draws 12,000+ Registrants

The largest Flying Pig Marathon to date took place Sunday, May 1, 2016. More than 39,000 people registered for one or more events during the 18th annual Flying Pig race weekend. The Paycor-sponsored Half Marathon, which has become the weekend's largest race, saw more than 12,000 registrants.

Paycor Associates were all over the place on race day, whether running or walking or volunteering at one of two places--the company's water stop at 644 Linn Street or at the finish line. Paycor's water stop at mile 4 is a long-held tradition, but this is the first year Paycor volunteers have experienced the joy of handing out Half Marathon medals at the finish line:

"I had the privilege of handing out medals yesterday at the finish line. I even got to give one to a friend from Paycor for completing the relay. It was an honor that I hope to repeat next year." - Tracy, Paycor finish line volunteer

Paycor's Chief Sales Officer and Flying Pig Streaker Scott Rudy completed his 18th Flying Pig Marathon on Sunday. Less than a year after facing a severe neck injury and hearing he may never walk again, Scott yesterday demonstrated what determination is all about: working hard and achieving your goals no matter what stands in the way.

Head into “Year-Beginning” Ready for Success

While it’s most common for us to talk about 4th quarter as “year-end”, I like to think about this time as “year-beginning.” It’s a hectic season and most of us have to ensure we operationalize a strong finish, while forecasting and planning for the next 12 months. Yet, our clients often tell us that they have a hard time getting to planning and working strategically on their people practices. The emails keep coming. Hiring is still needed.

Paycor Wraps Up 4th Annual Holiday Market

This month, Paycor hosted its 4th annual Holiday Market. Employees, from around Cincinnati, were invited to HQ for an afternoon of shopping, raffle prizes and tasty treats. The initiative for hosting the Holiday Market is simple. Our employees work hard year-round, and during the holiday season we feel as if we should reward their efforts. Not only is the event supposed to give associates a break during their busy day but it encourages departments to spend time with one another.

Some of the clients and local vendors included: City Scape Tiles The Candle Lab Bling Favorites Cincy Shirts Bengals Pro Shop...

We’re Thankful for Our Employees

We’re Thankful for Our Employees

During the holidays, families are overwhelmed with parties, travel plans and activities. And our Paycor associates are no exception. With all the craziness that goes on during Thanksgiving, people should be focused on spending time with family and friends, not worrying about expenses. Well, that’s what Paycor’s founder and CEO, Bob Coughlin, believes. This initiative is close to Bob’s heart and for more than 25 years he’s been handing out turkeys for employees to enjoy with their families. This year, through Bob’s support, nearly 900 turkeys were given to associates. From the top down our organization truly is inspired to do the right thing and support one another. He didn’t forget about our remote employees, our temps and contractors or...
