Below is the summary of Writing Payroll Procedures.
On Nov 7, we presented our free payroll webinar titled Writing Payroll Procedures with guest speaker Vicki Lambert,CPP. Vicki is President and Academic Director of The Payroll Advisor™, a firm specializing in payroll education and training of payroll professionals. The Payroll Advisor™ offers a subscription-based payroll news service which keeps payroll professionals up-to-date on the latest rules and regulations.
In this day and age each and every department is expected to have written procedures for all their tasks. Payroll is no exception. Many payroll departments are still attempting to get started let alone to finish this long and arduous task. There are “tricks to the trade” of writing procedures, this information will be covered during the webinar. Vicki will explain why breaking up the task into 30 minute increments can allow your department to write fully documented procedures in hours instead of days and weeks. She will also discuss how it doesn’t affect the final outcome if you want to set up the entire list of procedures needed to be done before getting started or just grab a topic and go—both ways lead to procedures being written with the right organization. Nothing stands in the way of getting those procedures written as Vicki discusses how to work around payroll deadlines and staffing shortages. If you follow the suggestions made in this webinar not only will you find a way to get the procedures written but may even have a bit of fun along the way!
