Payroll Executives Council

A Payroll Executive’s primary role is leading and developing an effective, efficient and knowledgeable global and domestic payroll organization. There is no compromise to ensuring compliance with global and domestic government regulations and data privacy requirements. The payroll executive must work effectively and balance internal stakeholder requirements (HR, Finance, Benefits, Security, IT, Compensation, etc.) with payroll practices, schedules and regulations. All while securing a seat at the executive table by creating partnerships, develop their strategic thinking and having their voice heard. We discuss:

  • Developing and managing an effective global & domestic payroll organization
  • Staying compliant with government and customer requirements
  • Designing, implementing, and maintaining effective audit and internal payroll controls
  • Evaluating, implementing and managing third party solutions, vendors and services
  • Analytics and reporting for both tactical and strategic analysis
  • Effectively dealing with payroll challenges required by M&A activities
