How did Paycom become so successful?

Chad wanted to bring innovation in the payroll methods that’s why he initiated Paycom. He has played a vital role in bringing Paycom to a next level and all of the achievements Paycom has made are led by this man. At the start, he did not have enough cash to launch the business, so he sold his home to get money for his start-up. At the time of the launch of the company, the internet was not commonly used. But he managed to start by using another company’s templates for payroll. To get started, he created the initial documents and software himself. In 2014, he made the company public and sold its shares. The company started to make actual progress after 2019 when they entered into an agreement, which is a long-term performance-based agreement between Chad Richison and the stakeholders of the company. The basic terms of the agreement are:

  1. Chad has to take the share value to $1000 per share in 2026.
  2. After ten years of plan in 2030, he has to increase the share $1750 per share.

This plan has already started working as the Paycom’s per share value increased to $400 in 2021 which shows that within a time period of six years the share value will reach to the targeted value. And if plan works till the end of decade the value of company will reach $100 billion.
