GATHER: Working Together to Obtain Customer and Employee Level Data.

We kick off implementation by introducing you to your Paycor team, establishing timelines, sharing training resources and developing your customized plan. The entire process, from sales through implementation, is connected so you don’t have to repeat yourself. We have knowledge of your organization as a unique customer.
