National Payroll Week was founded by the American Payroll Association (APA) in 1996 to celebrate and honor wage earners and payroll professionals. According to the APA, America's 156 million wage earners and payroll professionals "contribute, collect, report and deposit approximately $1.7 trillion, or 71.8% of the annual revenue of the U.S. Treasury." This year, APA is promoting National Payroll Week with contest and giveaways. Learn more on their official website.

Here at Paycor, we celebrate National Payroll Week by saluting our clients and wage earners everywhere for all they do. At the same time, we honor our own payroll specialists for their dedication and hard work. If you'd like to thank your Paycor specialist, write them a note or share some words of appreciation on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Thank you for choosing Paycor and for allowing us to serve you and your employees. We wish you a happy National Payroll Week!
