The Payroll Juggling Act

Payroll professionals have a vital role in any organizations ecosystem. From facilitating pay-runs to changing addresses and filing year-end forms, payroll employees average 25 hours of overtime per month handling an organizations' payroll tasks.  

Some Tips & Tricks for Smooth Payroll Management

Tip/Trick #1 – Utilize Automation to Enhance Compliance

Automation plays a key role in successful payroll!

Organizations that are "highly automated" are 2x more likely to find compliance very easy and 4x more likely to say compliance takes little time and effort. 77%  of "highly automated" organizations say their ability to track national regulatory changes is above or well above average.  

Automations such as these help ease the burden of compliance:

  • Automated tax codes assignment and earning code application
  • Alerts on errors that can impact payroll runs – red flags prevent issues  
  • Employee wok hour deviation notifications – flagged to catch problems early  
Tip/Trick #2 – Encourage Employee Use of Self-Service

Use self-service, save valuable resources!

Employee self-service decreases the workload of HR teams AND increases employee engagement.

  • Equip employees with the tools to handle their HR needs
  • Minimize the maintenance of employee data  
  • Encourage employee independence  
  • Reduce the number of requests to payroll and HR for pay stubs, W-2s, and other important documents  
  • Free up payroll and HR to focus on other strategic initiatives

Tip/Trick #3 – Find the Right Payroll Partner

The right partner makes all the difference!  

Payroll is one of the most complex and time-sensitive functions of an organization. The right partner:

  • Makes the process easier and save your team valuable resources
  • Increase your organization's ability to maintain compliance  
  • Be flexible enough to work with your current processes
  • Provide applicable data and reports on your payroll processes
  • Reduce the number of manual workarounds and duplicate work
