Upgrading your clocking systems can save 50% of a Payroll Manager’s time
Are you looking to save time for your HR Team? This articles explores ways in which upgrading your clocking systems an make life easier for your Payroll Manager.
On the face of it the role of a Payroll Manager is straightforward. They are responsible for ensuring that employee’s salaries are credited with the appropriate amount of money on the right date at the right time, but delving deeper it’s easy to spot the difficulties this person may face at their job. They must be trustworthy and have a keen eye for detail to ensure they comprehensively accomplish their end-to-end tasks with precision. Their role is busy and varied and requires lots of task juggling as multiple duties need to be performed throughout the month – not just in the lead up to pay day.
Traditionally Payroll Managers have spent a large proportion of their time undertaking administrative work. Today more and more of these professionals are also under pressure to focus on transformational work to deliver results. Companies are addressing this expectation by introducing new advanced clocking systems with features that reduce time spent on laborious tasks.
Pain Points for Payroll Managers:
The most common issue Addtime consultants come across when discussing pain points with Payroll teams is that too much time is spent processing payroll. In the event that a company has multiple sites, the Payroll Manager would be required to input clock card data from each site into a spread sheet together with any bonuses, overtime payments or deductions, all before the data is entered into their payroll system.
Payroll Managers found this a to be a recurring challenge and in 1 company with multiple sites up to 1.5 weeks per month was taken up for staff paid monthly, and most of a Monday morning for weekly paid employees.
As a result of this, other tasks were being neglected and HR/Payroll Managers were becoming increasingly frustrated at work.
