Writing Payroll Procedures: Best Practices for 2019

Live Webinar | CEU Approved

  • 90 minutes

To ensure efficient business operations, each department is expected to have written procedures for all their tasks.  Payroll is no exception to this expectation. Yet many payroll departments are still attempting to get started (let alone to finish) this long and arduous task.

There are “tricks to the trade” for efficiently writing procedures and that’s what this webinar will cover.  You will see how breaking up the task into 30-minute increments can allow your department to write fully documented procedures in hours instead of days and weeks. We will discuss how it doesn’t affect the 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 we discuss how to work around payroll deadlines and staffing shortages. As a bonus, you can turn this monumental project into a positive learning experience by using it to train yourself and everyone within your department.

By following the suggestions made in this webinar, not only will you find a way to produce solid written procedures; but may even have a bit of fun along the way!

Join this session by expert speaker Vicki M. Lambert where she will help set you on your way to finally accomplishing that item on your to-do list that has lingered for so long—writing the procedures for your payroll department. By showing how cutting the task down into 30-minute increments increases your efficiency you can learn to write procedures in hours instead of days and weeks.
