Phil Tuxbury

System Specialist
Farmington Hills, Michigan | Full-Service HR

For more than five years, I have worked with my AccessPoint colleagues to support the payroll systems internally and externally. The payroll process is the heart of human resources — I enjoy it because it’s both important and rewarding work.

I’ve worked in the PEO field for nearly 15 years, starting shortly after graduating college. I like the variety in our line of work and the different people I get to meet. Each company needs a customized solution that’s right for them, this interests and motivates me.

When I was in high school, I worked and saved up to buy my own computer and pay for a monthly AOL subscription. It was a way to access information that I had never experienced before. Since then my interest in technology, computer systems, how information is stored and how to help people understand the way these things work together has only grown.

At home, my wife and I have four kids, two laptops and internet access that reaches all rooms in the house. I’ve upgraded since the AOL days.
