Useful Payroll Information

What exactly do payroll professionals DO?

If you're unsure of what exactly a payroll professional actually does then the information below might help. The short answer is basically anything and everything concerning payroll, whilst adhering to applicable legislations and regulations. Payroll professionals work efficiently and effectively to ensure your staff are consistently paid on time.

Not easy to accomplish in any organisation, no matter what the scope of your payroll requirements.

Oh, did I mention they also need to engage with your employees? How else are your team going to know who to bring the chocolates to for the great job they do in paying them properly each and every pay day?

It’s a pretty big ask but payroll professionals find a way, time and time again.

How do they do it?

First of all, they are in the payroll profession because they actually like payroll. Or numbers. Or people. Or any combination of the above.

Secondly, they stay on top of their game through constant training.

Thirdly, they stay abreast of current legislative and regulatory updates through a variety of means:

  • Payroll and HR newsletters
  • Seminars
  • Webinars
  • RSS feeds to applicable government agencies
  • Joining network groups

Finally, they reach out and touch their employees. Okay, not really physically touching, but connecting in a variety of methods. This helps to put a face on payroll so that employees feel valued and have a trustworthy point of contact.

Sound daunting? Not to the thousands of payroll professionals around the world who make it their mission to take pride in what they do. Wearing multiple hats, they juggle pay schedules and work loads with ease.

What does that show us?

Most payroll professionals reach higher, jump further, and succeed more often than not. They are fundamental to the success of every organisation – employees are the most important asset a business has. So ensuring employees are paid correctly, on time and in compliance with legislations and regulations is a huge responsibility. Month in, month out, payroll professionals prove their worth by meeting the challenge.
