Prepare Your Payroll Department for Emergencies, Crises, and the Unexpected
Most companies are still reeling from the impacts of COVID-19 - so it's critical that your organization is prepared for anything in 2021.
Maybe in 2020, you found a makeshift way to ensure employees were getting paid on time without being physically in the office as a quick pivot when we were all sent home to work remotely in Q1.
Now we’re going into 2021 with COVID cases on the rise again and many of us still operating from home. It’s time to either (1) establish a more reliable emergency payroll process or (2) determine if your new way to do payroll is effective long-term and you’re ready for anything that the new year throws at us.
In this 60-minute workshop, you’ll learn best practices, resources, and strategies, such as where to begin and how to keep your plan up-to-date and agile.
You’ll walk away from this workshop ready to get paychecks to employees during any emergency or crisis this year, plus:
- Implement a preparedness plan for critical processes that keep your company going in case of crisis
- Prioritize payroll tasks in a disaster plan with clear delegated responsibilities
- Document and communicate tasks to your team
- Identify and utilize appropriate technological resources
- Create a sustainable, easily executed strategy that’s tailor-made for your company
- Keep your plan consistent with regulations and the current climate
- What we learned from the pandemic to better prepare for the unexpected
- What needs to be covered in your disaster recovery strategy
- How record retention impacts your emergency plan
- The most effective way to evaluate payroll processes (we’ll go over what’s critical and what’s not)
- Why having a recovery plan is important not only for the disaster but also what happens after we “return to normal”
Get answers to payroll teams’ most pressing questions, including:
- Which critical payroll tasks need to be addressed in my plan?
- How do we evaluate which tasks take priority?
- What should my plan include to reduce risks and remain compliant?
- How do I delegate responsibilities to ensure critical tasks get done?
- How do I keep my plan agile and up-to-date?
- When do we “end” the plan – and return to business as usual?
- Can we measure the efficiency of our approach (and improve if needed)?
