The pandemic has caused many changes in the world as we know it, especially in the workplace. The way business is conducted has drastically changed formats. Payroll is a part of your business that may have been seriously affected throughout the course of the pandemic. It is important to think about whether or not your post-pandemic payroll is working for you and your business!
Here are 3 considerations that you should acknowledge when thinking about your business’s post-pandemic payroll.
3 Questions to Ask Yourself About Payroll in 2022:
1. Do you know (and trust) the specialist on the line?
The pandemic and PPP loan process emphasized the importance of responsive customer service. In the event there’s an issue, business owners want assurance that their problem or concern can be quickly resolved by someone who knows their business. 1-800 numbers to random representatives are no longer efficient.
2. Did your payroll provider support business continuity?
March 2020 forced many businesses to go remote and many to this day continue to be hybrid. Paperless payroll and online HR support kept businesses operating and avoided interruptions in processing employees’ paychecks. If your provider was not prepared to keep your payroll going seamlessly, or you still are not set up with paperless systems that promote business continuity, it’s time to re-evaluate.
3. Is your payroll personalized for your specific business?
No two small businesses are the same. Law firms and medical practices have different payroll needs than farms and cannabis dispensaries. Some industries, such as hospitality and tourism, were hit much harder than others during the pandemic and the labor shortage that followed. Don’t be forced in a cookie cutter solution when your needs can be customized.
If you answered “no” to any of the above questions, it may be time to switch payroll providers.
