Streamlining Payroll Operations and Efficiencies

Streamlining Payroll Operations and Efficiencies

Payroll is often the largest expense for a business and can be even more costly because of non-compliance, inefficient processes, lack of controls, and outdated technology. A missed deadline or incorrect tax filing can result in hefty fines and even jail time. Manual entry of HR/payroll records is time-consuming and prone to human error. Not having controls in place, whether you are a public or a private company, can increase the risk of fraud. Outdated technology can be complex and tends to add more administrative burden to HR/payroll teams, causing unwanted stress and frustration.

In this session we talk about the many ways that companies can stay compliant, streamline payroll operations, and optimize efficiency. We’ll share best practices and current trends to help improve your overall payroll operations and keep things running smoothly.

  • The importance of staying up-to-date with payroll regulations
  • Understanding how to keep payroll processes simple
  • How to create internal controls, checklists, and audits to reduce the risk of fraud, eliminate errors, and run payroll consistently
  • Discuss ways to automate workflows and payroll processes
  • What it means to go paperless
