The People that Get You Paid: Appreciating Payroll and it’s Role in Your Business

When you think of Labor Day, you might be thankful for a day off and thinking about spending time with family or relaxing. But did you know that, annually, the week of Labor Day is National Payroll Week? Founded in 1996 by the American Payroll Association, National Payroll Week celebrates employees and the payroll professionals that pay them. While there may not be a better feeling than pay day, do you know about the process that gets your pay to your pocket.

Payroll is one of the most overlooked, yet most important aspects of a business. Having an efficient payroll department in your business ensures employee morale stays high and your business continues flowing like a well oiled machine. Employees that get paid on time and reliably are happier and more motivated to perform well. Examining your businesses payroll structure, and showing it some time and attention, can help you understand more about your business and the hard working employees that work to keep paychecks in everyone’s pockets.
