Talent Acquisition Tools include:


Candidate Tracker makes it easy for recruiters and hiring managers to keep close tabs on potential employees with true potential.

  • Build an instant, customizable database autopopulated from résumés.
  • Assemble a contact history searchable by school, degree, skill set, previous employer, ZIP code radius, follow-up date and more.
  • Measure the ROI of recruiting efforts to reveal where your prospect-networking dollars are best spent, and enables you to turn these passive people into active applicants!

  • Choose the types of searches conducted and how screening results are issued.
  • Run background checks on existing employees at any time.

  • Run E-Verify® checks from within Paycom’s application.
  • Securely store completed I-9s online.
