ClearBridge Mid Cap Growth Strategy made the following comment about Paylocity Holding Corporation (NASDAQ:PCTY) in its Q4 2022 investor letter:

Paylocity Holding Corporation (NASDAQ:PCTY) also held up well against broad customer spending slowdowns earlier in the year but saw its share price weaken on broader macro headwinds during the quarter. The company’s cloud-based human capital management and payroll software solutions help businesses manage through broad labor shortages and provide solutions to retain talent. However, as excess slack in the labor market has begun to be absorbed, investments in human resources solutions have declined. Additionally, we believe Paylocity continues to have a compelling long-term growth runway as it attracts new customers and gains market share against large, mature competitors.”
