Who We Are

PayNW was founded in 2007 on evergreen principles to be a company that thrives and endures, operating with the vision and intention of being around for 100 + years. A national HCM provider, PayNW originally began as a payroll company. Our current offerings include Human Resources Systems, Time Tracking, Payroll, Onboarding, Carrier Connection, Performance Reviews, Integrations, and more. Serving clients across multiple industries, we have expertise in Senior Living.

We partner with mid-sized and growing businesses throughout the United States. We do our best work when clients use us for all their HCM needs, but we can also provide customized services where we are needed most, seeking to be an ongoing partner. We are an extension of our client’s business, making it easier for them to be employers – people, our people and our customers’ people, are at the center of everything we do.

A national firm, PayNW’s roots are in Seattle, but our heart is nationwide. We understand remote workforces and honor diversity with a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion team dedicated to ongoing learning.

PayNW is a constant presence in the communities we serve. Not only do we put our money where our mouth is with a $.02 donation per every pay statement processed ($10,869 in 2021), but we also empower our employees to give back, with paid time off for volunteerism.
