Paycor Named as Finalist in 2013 Stevie® Awards for Customer Service

Paycor was recently named a Finalist in the Customer Service Department of the Year – Financial Services category in the seventh annual Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.

The awards are presented by the Stevie® Awards, which organizes several of the world’s leading business awards shows including the prestigious International Business Awards.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word “crowned,” the final results will be announced during a gala banquet on Monday, February 25 at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Finalists from the U.S.A. and several other nations are expected to attend.

More than 1,100 entries from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted to this year’s competition, an increase of 10% over 2012. Finalists were determined by the average scores of 120 professionals worldwide, acting as preliminary judges. Entries were considered in 30 categories for customer service and contact center professionals, including Contact Center of the Year, Award for Innovation in Customer Service, and Customer Service Department of the Year; 41 categories for sales and business development professionals, ranging from Senior Sales Executive of the Year to Sales Training or Coaching Program of the Year to Sales Department of the Year; and categories to recognize new products and services and solution providers.

The Paycor Client Service team, who won the People’s Choice Stevie Award for Customer Service in 2011, is being recognized again for the one-to-one personal service that allows us to build trusted relationships with our clients. Our commitment to listening shows in our products as well as our service: in 2012, two thirds of our product enhancements came from client feedback. We are also dedicated to continually educating our clients, providing updates and webinars on compliance and tax issues as well as ongoing product training.

More than 100 members of several specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place January 28 - February 8.

“Many of our preliminary judges have commented about the high quality of the entries the competition received this year,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “Our final judges will have a challenging but rewarding task, to determine the Gold, Silver and Bronze placements.”

"We are so honored to be recognized by the Stevie Awards again this year,” said Lynn Mangan, Vice President of Client Services at Paycor. “Paycor's first guiding principle is: take care of the client first. We are very appreciative of the recognition of our associates that work hard each and every day to take care of our clients' needs."
