For the sixth consecutive year, Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of integrated human capital management solutions for payroll, human resources, retirement, and insurance services, has been recognized by Selling Power magazine on its 50 Best Companies to Sell For list. Paychex ranked number three on the 2018 list, moving up from the number five spot last year.
