Payroll benchmarking is a simple process which can help you cut costs and improve efficiency. Learn the pros and cons of payroll benchmarking, and how to set up a benchmarking program for your payroll department, in this webinar.

During this one hour-long webinar, our speaker will walk you through the process of payroll benchmarking, explaining everything about it, and why it’s a good idea for you. You will learn how to set up and benchmark payroll processes, which in turn will help you weed out ineffectual processes, and further strengthen effective ones. This will have a positive impact on your payroll department’s overall efficiency.

The webinar begins with the basics of payroll benchmarking – what is it? What are its uses? How does it apply to payroll, and how does it help? Our speaker will answer these questions, and also take you through other fundamentals of the process, such as: the reasons why benchmarking should apply to payroll, myths surrounding the process, common benchmarking mistakes. Another important subject which will be covered is how to incorporate your findings, to make it all worthwhile.
