Kirsten, Detroit sales manager, has been a part of the Paycom family since February 2009.

When asked what advice she would give a new employee for being successful at Paycom she said, “I would say to stay positive and be a better you every day. Be open to learning and have a positive mind. Also, constantly expand your Paycom and general business knowledge. The more you learn and the more you stay positive, success will come.”

Describe what you do. 

I currently manage the Paycom sales office in Detroit, I also train and develop my reps to become the best they can be. I enjoy seeing them accomplish their goals and see how motivated they are every single day. Every time we meet with a company, we get the opportunity to learn how we can add value and provide solutions to help them reach their company goals.


How does your position impact Paycom’s future?

The Detroit office is full of hard-working and successful individuals. Each person that comes into this office is #PaycomProud and I get the joy to watch them grow. The more I’m able to develop them, the more business they touch, enabling them to reach more goals!

What is one thing you have learned that you did not know before working at Paycom? 

Executives read a lot! They do this to expand their knowledge. I barely read books before, but now I read a new book every month. Reading has made me a better business person as well as a better manager.

What makes you “Paycom Proud”? 

Paycom is such an incredible company. There are many things that make me “Paycom Proud”, but one thing that stands above the rest is the company’s commitment to the development of its people. I enjoy the training we receive, as we are always working to better ourselves.

Where has been your favorite place to travel, and why?

Fiji!  I loved the hospitality and the people there. It’s a beautiful place, but I would go back to see the people. To this day, I can tell you about all of the people who worked at our resort and even those who lived in the village. It is such a great place to visit!

What are some of your favorite hobbies outside of work?

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, in addition to traveling and exploring the beautiful state of Michigan.
