What excites you about your new role at Paylocity?

Michelle Ensey: Three things really — the people, culture, and their mission. There are a ton of really smart and talented people here. Paylocity also has a clear culture where everyone has a voice, they work together and are accountable for their work. Human capital is any company's most valuable asset. It's exciting to work with a company whose mission is all about creating solutions that help companies and employees have a better experience.

What made Paylocity stand out in your job search?

ME: The core values that Paylocity embodies aligned with my core values. They have a remote workforce and manage it well - meaning that I feel confident about working remotely and being a valued member of the team. I'm able to balance my family and my career without having to sacrifice one for the other.

Can you tell us a little more about your journey to finding this job?

ME: Previously, I worked in a corporate environment where there was a lack of work-life balance. Through weekly emails and various networking invitations, PowerToFly became a key resource reinforcing a feeling in my gut that there were options out there... I just had to find the right one. When PowerToFly introduced me to Paylocity, it opened my eyes to an opportunity that allowed me to still have a young family and my career without making sacrifices.

What advice do you have for someone looking to get hired at Paylocity?

ME: Share your experiences in delivering on customers' unmet needs. That's a huge part of the Paylocity culture, so don't be afraid to let your passion for customers shine!

Good luck Michelle!
