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!

The world has changed in the past few weeks.
We're watching corporations and organizations across the world come out in support of Black lives in droves. Many of those organizations are doing so for the first time in their history.
Farnaz Azmoodeh used to dislike running. She was really, truly, actively not interested.
But after suffering through it for a few months, it's now one of her favorite things to do. "I get so much joy out of it," says Farnaz. The same thing happened when she started making pottery: she says the first month was "terrible" as she struggled to shape the clay with no success but shares that she came to love the process of building after getting through an initial period of learning and adjusting.
What does BIPOC mean?
For our first entry in our now-monthly glossary of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) terms, we're going to cover BIPOC, a (relatively) new term in the space. We'll answer questions like "What does BIPOC stand for?", "Are Asians and Latinos BIPOC?", and "BIPOC vs POC — which should I use?"
