Paycor, providing companies with intuitive, cloud-based onboarding, applicant tracking, HR, payroll and timekeeping software, today announced that the company has been selected as a recipient of the prestigious SHARE Medical Mutual Pillar Award for 2016. As part of the Medical Mutual Pillar Award for Community Service, presented by Smart Business, the SHARE Award honors the company whose employees best exemplify the values of Medical Mutual's volunteer employee SHARE Committee -- to share, help, aid, reach and educate.

"At Paycor, we feel that we have a real responsibility to take care of the communities in which we live and work. As such, giving back is a part of our company DNA," said Karen Crone, chief human resources officer at Paycor. "We appreciate that our efforts have been recognized by Medical Mutual, and the widespread impact that we have achieved in support of our communities has been its own reward. With the dedication of our Paycor associates, our potential to make a difference knows no bounds."

Community Partners, Paycor's community service organization, was founded by Paycor associates in 2010 as a way to demonstrate the company's guiding principles, which include "Take care of each other" and "Do the right thing." In recognition of the outstanding commitment Paycor makes to improve the communities it serves, including the Greater Cincinnati area, the company also received a Medical Mutual Pillar Award for Community Service in 2014, and Rick Chouteau, sales vice president for Paycor, was awarded the Pillar Award for Nonprofit Executive of the Year the same year.

A grassroots initiative, Community Partners channels the talents and dedication of Paycor associates in order to focus on addressing social and economic challenges in surrounding communities. Since its inception, the Community Partners program has fulfilled more than 11,000 volunteer opportunities in support of nonprofit organizations such as Accounting for Kids, the Down Syndrome Association of Cincinnati and Steps for Success at Oyler School. The Steps for Success program provides Oyler high school students with career planning assistance and connects them with business community mentors, all with the goal of ensuring students progress to graduation.

"Being able to work with these amazing kids through Steps for Success is a wonderful experience. Growing that connection with them and knowing that you're probably one of the few adults that they trust is truly humbling. Over the past three years, we've stuck with the same class, and seeing one class grow from sophomores to seniors has been a remarkable transformation," said Steps for Success volunteer and Paycor learning and training coordinator, Maggie Ogborne.

The Medical Mutual Pillar Award for Community Service honors businesses of all types and sizes that make outstanding contributions to their community. Its purpose is to encourage a charitable environment, recognize creative efforts that make a difference and demonstrate the ties between the for-profit and nonprofit worlds. Award recipients were recognized during a reception on January 14, 2016, at the Duke Energy Convention Center and were featured in the January edition of Smart Business Cincinnati.
