Congratulations to Our 2021 Employees of the Year! πŸ†

Each year, we are excited to recognize six employees from three key divisions of our company, who went above and beyond the year before.

Those areas are Sales (the people you meet when you're thinking of coming to Payroll Country), Operations (the people you meet once you're here), and leadership (the people who empower Ops and Sales to be amazing at their jobs. 

Without further adieu, our 2021 Employees of the Year:

By July, she was hitting 100%+ of her goal each month. In November, she hit 344% of her monthly goal and finished the year over 100% of her yearly goal. Super proud of her hard work and dedication to learning her craft."
