Faculty, staff and student employees now can add or edit their chosen name,  displayed in Paycom as “preferred name,” and chosen pronoun, a custom field, via Paycom Employee Self-Service at any time. Currently, these fields do not connect to Banner or other systems.

Chosen (displayed in Paycom settings as “preferred”) names added to Paycom will be displayed throughout the system where a legal name is not required. To add a chosen name to Paycom, follow the chosen name guide provided on The Hub.

Additionally, chosen pronouns added to Paycom will be viewable by an individual’s supervisor and upline. To add chosen pronouns to Paycom, follow the chosen pronoun guide provided on The Hub.

Supervisors, chairs and deans can follow the viewing employee information guide to view their downline’s information, including chosen names and pronouns.

Student employees do not have access to The Hub. Guides should be downloaded and shared with them if they would like to make these changes.
