Preparing for the ‘next normal’: making payroll a strategic focus in a disrupted environment

9th June 2021 | 10:00am - 11:30am BST
How can we obtain agility, total visibility and optimised cost benefits through the digitisation of payroll?

A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by ADP

The disruption of COVID-19 put many transformation projects on hold and, in the midst of ensuring business continuity, payroll was somehow overlooked. Accounting for some 50-60 percent of a company’s business spend pay is a large expense to ignore, yet thankfully now finance and HR leaders are realising the importance of making payroll a strategic focus.

Over the last 12 months, the most digitally savvy organizations enjoyed cost efficiency, productivity advantages and reduced system complexity, while those operating on-premises payroll and HR muddled through with financial administration burdens, manual spreadsheet-based processes and Human Capital Management (HCM) visibility gaps. This is even made even more difficult when operating within a global organization with multiple locations and entities.

So, how can we obtain agility, total visibility and optimised cost benefits through the transformation of payroll? How can we use payroll as the cornerstone of HCM system to drive meaningful impact and receive better analytics capability, transforming complex data into usable insights? And how can having the right foundations set the capability to expand internationally at scale, with ease?

Join ADP and a select group of HR and finance executives to discuss how to transform your payroll solutions to meet your strategic objectives and drive efficiency and improved employee experience across the enterprise.

Discussion Topics

How did the response to COVID-19 impact your payroll and Human Capital Management digitisation plans? What are the main challenges you’re still experiencing?
What improvements have you made, or plan to this year, to make your payroll fit for the new working environment? E.g., migrating to cloud, connecting HR and payroll solutions, further digitalisation?
Do you feel like the optimization of your HCM system can provide to you the best ROI amongst all the project you need to undertake in the next few months?
