PayTech Saves the Day with its "Walk Beside You Approach"

The 2017 Top Companies in the services category include: Paytech, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck and Teletech Holdings Inc.




Sometimes, even the best-run companies need a super hero to manage change, including the payroll department. PayTech, a payroll and human resources information systems (HRIS) consulting company, uses a "walk beside you approach" to strategically guide companies through change mangement. "Our competitors operate from a checklist," says Jan Allen, founder, CEO and president. "PayTech looks beyond the list of to-do's and goes outside the box with our clients, looking into the future and aligning their people, processes and systems to maximize their performance for years to come."

The company offers client-side human capital management (HCM) system consulting in the areas of implementation, process/system optimization, carve out and merger/acquisition, payroll staff augmentation and HRIS services.

That means Greenwood Village-based PayTech often saves the day for clients by offering client-side support to payroll departments. While other consulting companies provide project managers who organize deadlines and keep projects on track, PayTech’s certified consultants take on both strategic and tactical aspects of these implementations onsite.

The woman-owned company has 150 employees, many of whom  — like founder Jan Allen — found they are exceptional in the payroll field but faced few or undesirable career advancement opportunities. PayTech created consulting positions across North America that experienced payroll professionals could grow into.

The company supports Denver’s Dress for Success organization, sponsors a team for the annual "Step Up Walk" for The Rocky Mountain Down Syndrome Association, supports the Nyaka AIDS Orphans Project in Uganda and sends care packages with homemade cookies and other items to deployed U.S. soldiers with the Adopt-A-Soldier program.



Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is a top lobbying firm, which is a little unusual for a law firm based in Denver. The firm was ranked No. 18, based on revenue, when Norm Brownstein opened the Washington, D.C., office 20 years ago, and jumped to No. 4 in 2012.

The firm, founded in 1968, now has 519 employees, including 250 lawyers and policy professionals in 12 offices. Last year, the firm contributed nearly 12,000 hours of pro bono professional expertise to organizations. This year, the firm donated $500,000 to create endowed fellowships at the University of Colorado and the University of Denver law schools.


Last year, the TeleTech Community Foundation awarded grants that impacted 75,000 students across 62 organizations around the globe, aimed at supporting and transforming educational opportunities for disadvantaged students.The 48,000 employees of TeleTech can solve pretty much any problem over the phone or online. TeleTech is a global provider of customer experience, engagement and growth solutions delivered through a proprietary end-to-end Customer Engagement as a Service offering. Every day, Teletech associates interact with 3.5 million customers in 23 countries through 82 customer engagement centers on six continents across social, mobile, digital and face-to-face channels.
