Paycom Employees Give Over $16,500 to Project AWARE

OKLAHOMA CITY (Aug. 11, 2020) – Paycom Software, Inc., (NYSE:PAYC), a leading provider of comprehensive, cloud-based human capital management software, donated over $16,500 to Project AWARE to support shark and ray conservation, marine debris solutions and ocean protection.

To coincide with one of TV’s most popular weeks, Shark Week, Paycom hosted a companywide phishing simulation challenge to increase phishing education and raise donations for Project AWARE, collecting a total of $16,580.

“Project AWARE is impressed by Paycom’s commitment to philanthropy,” said Lauren Wiskerson, development manager of Project AWARE. “We can’t thank the Paycom team enough for their immense generosity. It’s truly an honor to partner with such a kindhearted group whose contribution is helping reduce the amount of pollution in the ocean. Incredible things happen when our community comes together for our cause.”

The donations come as part of Paycom’s ongoing giving campaign, in which employees have the opportunity to donate to a variety of local and national causes. Additional ways they give back include volunteer events and service initiatives that strengthen families and communities.

“I’m proud our employees are supporting ocean and marine life,” said AJ Griffin, Paycom’s director of governmental and community affairs. “This is a great opportunity for us to support a worldwide organization doing important work we don’t see every day.”

Over the course of 25 years, Project AWARE has removed over 1.5 million pieces of trash from the ocean, rallied over 150,000 divers to bring protection to vulnerable shark and ray species, and supported over 200,000 conservation actions.
