Product Overview

This review focuses on the Paycor’s LMS solution. For a detailed review on Paycor as a whole, check out our review here.

Paycor’s LMS solution, Paycor Learning, helps managers track employee training, whether it’s live instructor-led training or online courses. Administrators can organize training programs by individuals, teams or departments. They can also create online course content that includes surveys, quizzes and assessments. The courses are designed to be mobile optimized so learners can access them from anywhere.

Paycor Learning has many benefits, such as:

  • Improved learner engagement with interactive content
  • Flexibility for learners to complete training at anytime
  • Streamlined manual processes
  • The ability to stay on top of compliance and certification requirements with tracking tools


Paycor Learning allows companies to track their virtual and classroom-based training programs. Trainers can set up learning paths,  modules and courses, and they can target the content to groups, departments, teams or individuals. They can also create content (e.g., video, links, images) with the advanced course builder. Trainers can also opt to access Paycor’s library of courses in topics like personal development and health and safety. Paycor Learning can support bilingual content, too.

Other features of Paycor Learning include:

  • Gamification (e.g., leaderboards, badges)
  • Multiple learning paths
  • Real-time tracking/reporting
  • Compliance tracking
  • Alerts and notifications for course completions and other learning milestones

New clients work with Paycor’s implementation team on a customizable implementation process. However, here are the basic steps it takes to get Paycor live:

  1. There’s an implementation meeting where Paycor gathers client requirements and other data and provides them with an implementation schedule.
  2. Paycor undergoes a database verification and configuration process to input the client’s employee information and configure the software to the client’s specifications.
  3. Paycor offers instructor-led training for new clients.
  4. Paycor tests the system by performing a payroll run and compares that to the client’s older system for verification. Clients can also test the software as well.
  5. Paycor goes live.

Customer Service & Support

Clients work with the customer support team on troubleshooting, HR best practices and other inquiries. Clients’ employees can access the help center to get answers on frequently asked questions and view other resources. They can contact Paycor for tech support issues but are advised to contact their employer on HR-related inquiries (such as questions about their pay stubs).

Paycor offers ongoing training via webinars on both its product and general HR best practices. It also provides the HR Center of Excellence Virtual Summit, a multi-day series of webinars that gives HR professional tools and continuing education credits to help them stay current on the latest trends and best practices.

Finally, Paycor recognizes that every organization has unique needs and complexity levels. That’s why its quarterly enhancements include new features directly from customers. Over 40% of new features come from client ideas and suggestions.


Paycor doesn’t publicly display its pricing information. Please contact the company directly for a quote.


The Paycor Learning solution is part of the HCM software, so it can’t be purchased as a stand-alone module. Also, it’s not intended for enterprise organizations.
