NEW PAYROLL SELECTION was run on the Oct 25th, 2021 and this OnDemand recording provides the full 3 hours of stream along with resource materials.

Payroll manages one of the largest costs a business has and if the wrong payroll (software or service) is selected that can create major risk to the business in regard to under and over payments to employees, incorrect reporting to government departments that can result in additional costs (penalties, interest) along the risk of external audit and legal challenges.  Selecting the wrong payroll can mean the additional time and cost involved creates substantial loss of confidence from the business and good will from employees in the payroll function.

The key to payroll selection is to spend time identifying what the business needs from their payroll and then select the payroll that will meet those needs.  The other essential activity for payroll is to ensure that the payroll is implemented and configured correctly from day one and that the payroll provider is held accountable to provide the software or service based on what was agreed to be provided while also future proofing payroll going forward.

This webinar will cover a wide range of topics with comprehensive notes that include templates, checklists and other resources.
