National Payroll Week 2022!

The Greenshades Marketing Team
Sep 6, 2022

Let’s face it: sometimes being a payroll professional can leave one feeling a bit, well, underappreciated.

On one hand, you know that there’s no other function within the business that has a more immediate – or more fundamental – impact on the day-to-day lives of employees. Conversely, it also tends to be a role where flawless execution goes unnoticed while errors are amplified.  

This week is National Payroll Week, and one of the things we love most about it is that it shines a light on this amazing group of professionals, bringing them front and center for recognition and appreciation. This year’s theme – America Works Because We’re Working for America – couldn’t be more appropriate.  

Paychecks have always been the lifeblood of the American family, but with skyrocketing inflation impacting every corner of the economy, timely and accurate payment of wages is more critical than ever.  

How acute is the situation? Take a look:

  • 44% of employees experiencing “a lot of daily stress” at work

This takes an already mission-critical function and notches the intensity even higher… and that’s just on the employee side of the equation. Payroll professionals also bear the weight of ensuring appropriate taxes are withheld and paid to federal, state, and local entities. So your local payroll team plays a big role in keeping the economy at large running, too.

That’s A LOT of responsibility.

At Greenshades, we believe the payroll team should be celebrated every day. That’s why we’ve spent the last two decades focusing 100% of our energies on making the process smooth, accurate, and glitch-free for payroll pros and the companies they support.

Throughout the week, and throughout the remainder of the year, we’ll share insights, information, and resources you can use to celebrate and support the payroll professionals within your organization. Of course, we also encourage you to check out our full calendar of webinars and events, each designed to keep you up-to-speed on the latest trends, issues, and opportunities impacting this vital part of your business.  

Regardless of how you choose to celebrate National Payroll Week, be sure to take some time honoring the individuals and teams that keep our economy moving in good times and challenging times alike.
