Leadership Development Program - Operations Management
Don't just land a job. Launch your future.
Our all-in-one software platform gives HR pros a way to easily manage daily tasks in payroll, benefits, talent, and workforce management.
But what makes us different is that our technology is backed by a culture that cares. We care about our team members, clients, and partners - because people matter most. And people have always been at the heart of our business.
Since our founding in 1997, this is the thing that's stayed the same, from our employees to the millions of users nationwide that access our platform. We pride ourselves on partnering with our clients to build the workplace they and their employees crave.
Let's go forward together.
Paylocity's Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) is a two-year Operations Management Leadership Development Program. At Paylocity, the Operations Department is the machine behind the processes that ensure client success in using our products. Our Operations teams take over from Sales and manage the client lifecycle from implementation services, client services, and all tech support functions.
The ELP is designed to accelerate leaders by developing recent college graduates who demonstrate the potential and interest in high level achievement in operations management.
