3pm: Compliance, Compliance , Compliance. How you can ensure your payroll meets internal and external audits.
What was covered in 2016
We all know that paying people on time and accurately is the key to delivering payroll, but payroll can be about so much more than that! The Payroll Game Changer is for anyone who would like to develop their payroll skills, change the game in how they add value to their company and grow their career.
In 2016 we looked at the changes we are seeing in payroll as a result of the introduction of workday, smaller companies being bought by large international organisations, the threat of outsourcing still looming and the greater need for compliance. Payroll will be held even more accountable, so if you want to look at how you be a game changing and deliver more, these are the thing you’ll need to consider!
