Paycor’s employee self-service features and user-friendly solutions help Krauss Maffei keep their employees engaged.

“Prior to Paycor, open enrollment was a yearly nightmare. Now, employees can speak fluently to their benefits offerings and they’re more engaged with the open enrollment process than ever before. And with employee self-service, our HR staff can focus on more strategic initiatives like building benefits packages that recruit and retain talent.”

Randy Hemmerle, Director of HR

Prior to Paycor

Based in Florence, Kentucky, Krauss Maffei is among the world’s leading manufacturers of machinery for processing plastics and rubber—and they’ve been in business for more than 180 years.

With their previous HR & payroll provider, they spent hours every week on administrative HR tasks rather than strategic initiatives. Employee PTO was tracked and approved in spreadsheets, updating employee information was time consuming and payroll errors were prevalent during each payrun. To make matters worse, their HR staff were so overwhelmed by the manual work involved with open enrollment every year that they implemented a passive enrollment where employee benefits simply rolled over.

Today, Krauss Maffei’s payroll is error free, open enrollment runs smoothly and employees feel confident about their benefit selections. When employees have questions about their PTO balance, or want to request time off, they no longer need to go through a gatekeeper—they can manage their balance on their phone, tablet or computer.
