The process of finding the right employees for your organization is never a particularly easy one. Just finding someone who can perform the job tasks alone is challenging enough, but there are other factors to consider beyond ability. In the last few years, employers in all industries have faced some common challenges in the hunt for the best talent. Here are a few trends affecting the staffing process currently:
If you’re trying to follow payroll best practices, you know manual payroll is a thing of the long gone past. Manual payroll allows for too many opportunities of error and takes up way too much time.
Good news. There are some great ways to streamline your payroll process.
The process of training new employees has so many moving parts that any company can easily let a few important items slip through the cracks from time to time. But making employees feel welcome and integral as quickly as possible can help start their relationship with your organization off on the right note and get them engaged in their work from day one.
An employee’s first few days are such a crucial and potentially awkward time for them. We’ve all had first-day experiences when we felt out of place and uncomfortable, but it doesn't have to be that way. You can create a better onboarding experience for your employees.
The buzzword in benefits and compensation training these days is Total Rewards. In the competition for talent, it’s not enough to offer a high salary—you have to have the entire package. In fact, more and more Millennials and Generation Z value perks other than base salary. Fortunately, some of these perks can be simple and affordable even for small businesses.
Payroll duties require careful strategy, teamwork, and execution. You have to deal with numbers and budgets and timesheets and government forms—this isn’t anything you want to screw up. As exciting as pay day is, it takes a lot of work to get there. As a payroll manager or accountant, you make it happen.
