There is something about surveys. The results grab the headlines, but not enough attention is given to the statistical base. For example, SHRM reports a survey that concludes 77% of Human Resource departments have gone paperless. However, this is based on the input from only 150 HR practitioners, all of whom were attending the 2015 SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) conference and exposition. These results may be indicative, but you need to examine such results in terms of your own business context.

These documents must be processed into systems or spreadsheets, and then shared with other departments such as payroll.
Determining whether employees qualify as full-time (FTE) for purposes of the ACA is complex, at best. While the actual requirement to provide insurance to full time employees (or pay specified penalties) doesn’t take effect for most employers until 2014, the record-keeping period, both for determining large employer status and for determining coverage eligibility by employee, runs throughout 2013.

When teaching or speaking about a subject, I try to hone in on a key aspect of the entire topic to direct those learning the material where to focus in on it. If this key aspect can be made clear then all of the subject matter, most of the time, also comes right into focus. […]
A question I am often asked when I do child support webinars is “why?” Why is payroll responsible for collecting child support? Just how and where did the withholding of money for a citizen’s responsibilities to their child come within the purview of payroll? It all boils down to what is known as the […]
