An excerpt from Elevate your payroll performance

As an HR or payroll professional, you are responsible for the most critical resource within any business: the people.

Each employee is your customer. They expect payroll to be seamless and always on time. And if the right talent isn’t in place to run the business, nor the right benefits to retain employees, it will face a turbulent future.

When employees feel valued, appreciated and nurtured throughout their relationship with a business, they become committed to giving it their best. They take personal stock in the company’s successes and motivate their colleagues to do the same.

According to Sage research, motivated employees take just 2.69 days off sick per year, versus 6.19 sick days for unmotivated workers. An engaged workforce drives better performance – and a smooth payroll process is critical for engagement.

Your HR and payroll team has the power to elevate overall performance and build a workforce that takes pride in working for the business.

This guide is for businesses looking to surpass employee expectations of people and payroll – those who want to tackle payroll tasks more efficiently and engage with their people more effectively to keep them and attract new talent.
