What is Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I)?
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are all of the ways in which people are unique from one another, eliminating barriers for equitable opportunity, and the act of valuing and respecting the differences in every person we interact with daily.
Think of it This Way
Everyone brings their own unique individuality and perspectives to work. Your identity and perspective are influenced by your environment, race, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion and more. DE&I aims to build workplaces that create a sense of belonging and inclusion for all.

Why is it Important?
DE&I exemplifies Paycor’s Guiding Principles, especially Do the Right Thing and Take Care of Each Other. We believe that challenging the status quo and ensuring all voices are heard and valued are the best ways to keep Paycor’s culture dynamic and healthy.
Paycor’s Diversity Policy
At Paycor, we have a culture that supports and embraces the rich mosaic of diversity in our Associates, Customers, and partners. We are passionate about encouraging individuality and authenticity that extends beyond our work and into the communities we serve. We prioritize building equitable systems and practices that are grounded in learning and awareness. We hold ourselves accountable to expanding opportunities and promoting equity so that Paycor is a place where voices are heard and uplifted. Our journey is one of creating a sense of belonging and inclusion in every Associate. We are committed to challenging the status quo with empathy, compassion and humanity because that’s how we Take Care of Each Other.
We Have a Plan
Paycor has committed to focusing on strategic DE&I education and awareness, transparency in our data, and equitable opportunities and pay for women and associates of color to grow in leadership positions. We’re also committed to increasing ethnic and cultural diversity with a focus on Black/African-American and Latinx/Hispanic populations, and to increasing feelings of belonging and inclusion for all of our associates who self-identify in the LGBTQ+ population.
Perspectives+ is a diversity, equity and inclusion initiative developed by Paycor for our customers, partners, and prospective customers. This online resource center is filled with collaboration tools including articles, templates, webinars and practical tips to help leaders promote DE&I best practices in the workplace.
Perspectives+ has a special focus on promoting women, communities of color, and people from historically marginalized groups.
& Inclusion Strategy
Diversity, equity and inclusion (“DE&I”) is a priority at Paycor and we strive to create a culture of inclusion and belonging for all. For us, that means committing to strategic education, transparency, equity & equality, and purpose for the work.
Paycor established a formal Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Policy in August 2021, which was expanded upon in September 2022. In fiscal 2021, we hired a leader of DE&I to create and execute a strategic plan for DE&I, and our CEO signed the CEO Action Pledge for Diversity & Inclusion™, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Our DE&I strategy is guided by four pillars that outline the foundation of our action steps as they relate to the goals of the entire organization.
Making DE&I a Priority in the Workplace
Our message across the business is that Diversity, Equity and Inclusion work belongs to every associate in all functional areas. The work Paycor does for DE&I is a marathon – not a sprint. The DE&I team aligns with Paycor’s core values, most importantly to Take Care of Each Other and Do the Right Thing. Our company journey in DE&I started just shortly after the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Transparency is a key part of trust, which is a priority for enhancing belonging. We want your trust as we include everyone in our growth to build winning teams!
