What HR and payroll teams are asking for this Christmas

Payroll Services Alliance 13th Dec 2018

2018 has been a tough year when it comes to compliance and new legislation’s. With the uncertainty of Brexit and introduction of international changes like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), HR and payroll teams have had a lot to deal with.

With the festive period now upon us, it’s time for HR and payroll teams to take a well-deserved break with family and friends. Although socks and chocolate are a frequent occurrence on Christmas lists around the world, it’s likely that HR and payroll teams will be asking for more this festive period. So, what are HR and payroll teams around the world likely asking for this Christmas?

Increased accuracy

Ensuring that payroll is accurate and on-time can be a challenge for some organizations, especially for businesses that have employees in more than one country. By introducing automation into the HR and payroll process, back-office tasks can be quickly automated and streamlined. Alongside reducing the amount of admin tasks for HR and payroll teams, this also reduces the risk of problems occurring. Although HR and payroll teams might not be asking for a physical robot for Christmas, there is plenty that automation can do to help.

Ability to keep up with compliance

GDPR wasn’t the only new legislation to affect HR and payroll this year, but it was certainly a big one. Although GDPR was targeted at those in EU-based countries, it also affects organizations outside of the EU who handle the data of EU citizens. As recently discussed in our webinar, it’s crucial for organizations around the world to be compliant. With the help of global partnership of international payroll providers that have a global reach (but also have local experts), HR and payroll teams can have peace of mind that their organization is compliant.

Training and development

Training shouldn’t stop when formal education ends. In the HR and payroll industry there is the opportunity to continue learning—especially as new laws and legislation’s are introduced. By attending events and conferences, HR and payroll teams can attend expert presentations by HR influencers and leaders, and can continue their training and development.

With more laws and legislation’s set to be introduced in 2019, accuracy, compliance, and continued development is more important than ever before. But, with the festive period almost upon us, it’s a great time to sit back and reflect on the past year, and plan for the future.
