3 Tips to Ease Your Payroll Life

Every employer, no matter the size of the company, has more responsibilities than they can count — just to keep the day-to-day business running. Payroll is always one of the priorities.  

Employers know the payroll world can be complicated and complex.
Done well, employees think it is super easy.
Done incorrectly can result in frustrated employees and the possibility of some hefty penalties from the government.

Here are 3 tips to help you navigate the complex and ever-changing process of paying your employees. 

  1. GET ORGANIZED – Payroll includes correct earnings codes, correct deductions, earned/taken accruals, due dates, reports, etc. Find a repeatable process and organization style that works for you – outlook calendar, desktop calendar, task manager. Taking the time to think through what you need is worth it! 
  2. CLARIFY (OR SIMPLIFY) YOUR POLICIES – Small companies hate making them. And big companies can have way too many! Regardless of how many you have, your employees need to know expectations and processes for all HR activities such as attendance, paid time off, expense reimbursement, etc.
  3. GO PAPERLESS – Use a self-service portal for employee HR communication. They can download paystubs and W2s. Take the task off of HR’s plate and let employees access their information on their timeline.
