3 Steps to Convince Your Boss You Need a New HR & Payroll Provider

Making a change in how your business does business can be stressful. It can be hard to convince the powers-that-be that it’s the right time to make a move, but the longer you wait, the more productivity is impacted. So if you’re the resident Human Resources expert, how do you convince your boss that it’s time for a new HR and payroll provider?

Here are a few reasons to keep in your back pocket for the next time you’re riding the elevator with your boss and you want to convince her that's it time to find a new HR and payroll solution:

Save Time, Save Money, Look Like a Genius. The reason why “time is money” is such a cliché is because … well, it’s true. HR and payroll compliance is hard work. Not only does it take time, but errors can have serious ramifications. Manually processing paperwork, entering new-hires in the system, suddenly you don’t have time to do anything except catch up. Free up more time and, therefore, more money by partnering with a dedicated HR and payroll software provider who are experts in compliance and taxes. Partnering with an experienced provider will give your organization the time you actually need to focus on your business.

Get It Right the First Time. Finding, hiring and onboarding new employees can cost your business an average of $4,000 per position. A dedicated Human Resources provider that also offers dedicated applicant tracking and onboarding solutions can ensure you won’t be hiring and re-hiring for the same position when a new employee doesn’t work out. With the right partner, you can attract the best applicants, streamline the interview and application process and adopt an onboarding process that gives new employees the tools to succeed in your business’s unique environment.

Let the Experts Be the Experts. When you want honey, hire a beekeeper; when you want efficient and accurate payroll and tax expertise, hire a payroll expert. When benefits regulations shift and change, a superior HR and payroll provider will already be a step ahead of those changes, ready to prepare clients with the most up-to-date solutions to support their business. And the right provider will support your business with consistent points of contact, so when you do have a question or concern you can talk to someone you know -- and who knows you and your business.

Need more than three reasons? Paycor has created an expert guide with tips to help organizations find the right HR and payroll provider.

Is Holiday Pay Mandatory In Your State?

Is Holiday Pay Mandatory In Your State?

The FLSA Only Requires Employers to Pay for Time Worked Unlike most of the European Union, the United States has no federal law requiring private companies to pay for national holiday time off (by law, all employees in the EU also get a minimum of 28 paid vacation days). The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires an employer to pay its employees only for time worked. This means that if an employee takes the day off for Christmas, you don’t have to pay them for time not worked. But Most Employers Offer Paid Holidays In practice, though, most private sector employers in the US give their employees the day off for national holidays, or they pay them time-and-a-half for working on the day. Some companies also offer a floating holiday,...

The Different Types of Turnover

Voluntary vs. Involuntary Turnover Regardless of business type there are two main types of employee turnover: voluntary and involuntary. Within each of those categories, however, you’ll find various reasons for why a company might have employee turnover.

For example, when a poorly performing employee is let go and replaced with someone who is motivated and excels at their job, productivity can soar. This new worker can bring bottom-line benefits, as well as provide an overall boost to team morale. What is involuntary turnover? Involuntary turnover includes layoffs or reductions in force and terminating poorly performing employees. The first type of...
