To those who work outside of payroll, the job appears simple enough. But how do we find the time to invest in adding greater value to the business while ensuring the delivery of an on-time and accurate payroll? More often than not, an on-time and accurate payroll is not the only demand on the Payroll Department. At the end of the day, there is a long list of projects that the organization would like Payroll to tackle, such as compiling special management reports or supporting a HR initiative, which helps shift the payroll function towards one that delivers broader strategic value to the business. In recent years, payroll has seen the rise ofhighly-effective solutions that are completely changing the way we think about payroll, and what we expect from it. The National Academy of Health and Business has published a great blog on Top Payroll Trends of 2014. Check it out!

Paystubs were typically still provided in paper form, even for those choosing direct deposit.”
