About the Council

A payroll executive’s primary role is developing and leading an effective and efficient 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, compensation) with payroll practices and regulations, all while securing a seat at the executive table by creating partnerships, developing their strategic thinking, and having their voice heard.
