How payroll services can help your growing business

Did you know companies with more effective data grow 35% faster? That's according to research we conducted with the IDG.

You can use payroll services to gain a deeper understanding of how healthy your business is from a financial point of view.


Remuneration
The total cost of salaries will be an obvious place to start if you want to understand your payroll data more. With these numbers, you can build other metrics into your analysis such as a return on investment (ROI).

Turnover
High employee turnover is bad news. It may signify a deeper problem within the business when it comes to areas such as conditions, morale, and corporate culture. And it can cost money in lost productivity, recruitment, and training. Your payroll data can reveal what turnover is like in your business.

Absence
Analyzing data on sick days and vacation time will help you understand when workers are more likely to be absent and whether employees are taking their annual leave at the right time of year for the business.

Overtime
If employees are regularly working more than their agreed hours, consider what this means in terms of productivity and the way people are working. You can find out whether it’s more cost-effective, for example, to hire part-time or additional employees.

Training costs
Payroll teams are sometimes under pressure to find ways of cutting costs and improving efficiencies. With a training cost metric, it’s possible to walk that tight line between making cuts and ensuring employees are upskilled properly.

Across each of these areas you’ll find a huge amount of data to examine and, because it covers such a long period, it's easy to start spotting trends. With the right payroll services, you can use this information to plan ahead, knowing that you have an up-to-date view of your business. Payroll should be the first place you look, before planning for the future.
