Read the Webinar Recap:

  1. Events Impacting the “World of Work”

No matter the industry, size of company, or the number of employees – national and international events will always impact organizations. Already in 2022, there have been plenty of external events that have left the “world of work” with many challenges, including:  

  • Inflation (8.3% in April of 2022, alone – that’s a 40-year high!)
  • Real estate availability and accessibility  
  • Labor crunch (with 11.5 million unfilled job openings in March and 4.5 million voluntary quits)
  • Supply chain issues  

With these ongoing issues, we have many things in the second half of 2022 to prepare for:

  • Midterm elections
  • Federal policies
  • Social programs (like student loan forgiveness, the overturning of Roe v. Wade, and possible ACA adjustments)
  • Regional policies (CA contemplates a 4-day work week)

What does the culmination of all these events and changes tell us about the workforce and the “world of work”?

It means we are about to enter another year of change. Mental health-driven exits from companies means employee stress is up. With everything that’s going on right now, this reminds us that there is a need for a work/life balance, and money is no longer enough to get people to stay. This need for a work/life balance also has spurred mobility within the workforce and has driven more “outside the box” approaches to work; 500,000+ LLCs were registered during the pandemic. Not only are people becoming self-employed, but they are moving to locations with a lower cost of living and a better quality of life.

  1. Operational Changes & Challenges

With new operating models, comes new concerns.  

  • New tax and overtime complications
  • Life events and other HR changes  
  • New retention programs introduced  
  • Year-end closing complexities  
  • Diverse worker types  

Greenshades delivers solutions and services to help remedy some of the complexities (and more) including:  

HR: Helping organizations transition from the traditional password and username log in to two-factor authentication (2FA) to increase security  


  • Limited payroll admins  
  • GL suspense accounts  
  • Fully fledged adjustments in product  
  • Unlimited custom fields  

Tax: As always, Greenshades continues to monitor changes to regional, state, and federal tax policies.  

  1. Safeguarding Your Business

  • Automatic updates based on market changes

  • Robust employee self-service capabilities
  • Maintaining visibility, control, and flexibility of payroll funds
