“Because we’re a niche company, our administrators sometimes have trouble uncovering and implementing best practices. But when we partnered with Paycor they brought the expertise and thought leadership to help us overcome tough challenges like the new EEO-1 report. Paycor has the patience, knowledge and resources to help us stay ahead of problems and grow.”
- Jennifer Hillard, Director of People and Culture

Why Buy Sod Inc. Chose Paycor

In 2002, three family businesses came together to create a network of sod farms that operate and distribute around the country. But with ten locations and eighteen different payrolls to process, Buy Sod Inc. struggled to manage all their employees on one solution. They needed a more robust solution to handle all their unique needs.

Prior to Paycor

Buy Sod Inc. employs a large remote workforce in different states. Without mobile access to paystubs, employees relied on HR to answer their questions. As a result, administrators were bogged down with answering the same questions.

And because they operated in multiple states, Buy Sod Inc. struggled to calculate payroll taxes on their own. Without access to tax experts, HR administrators spent multiple hours every pay period reviewing payruns to ensure compliance

Challenges

  • Lacked employee self-service
  • Manual payroll processing
  • Manual onboarding
  • ACA reporting
  • Lacked access to tax experts
  • Recruiting talent

With Paycor

And with Paycor’s mobile app, employees can review pay information, view deductions, interact with payroll administrators and request time off, right from the app.
