Payroll in the staffing industry is like processing normal payroll, it must be accurate and timely, however, it presents its own unique set of opportunities.

Staffing industries can manage payroll manually or using a provider;
Manually: You can manually calculate payroll, giving you full control of your payroll. This option provides you with complete control, but it can be time-consuming and costly. Doing the calculations manually takes time because you have workers in a variety of locations, with unique schedules and different tax withholding requirements. If there are any miscalculations or missed deadlines, there can be fines and penalties, and manually processing payroll increases your compliance risk.
Outsourced: As a staffing agency, you can focus on hiring and recruiting and outsource your entire payroll and HR operations. This is a good option if you would like a completely hands-off approach to your payroll and HR needs. There is no need for an in-house team, and you can just focus on recruiting talent, however, with this approach, you lose all control and ability to configure to your business needs.
Payroll and HR software: Give your employees access to their important documents and benefits information. Allow employees to update their personal information and access their pay history from the desktop or their mobile app.
