Payroll transformations: From payments to hiring
August 3, 2020

As seen on Daily Pay

Episode Description: Has there ever been a time when payroll had to pivot as dramatically as it did at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic? Entire operations moved off-site, mostly from home. Hear from two highly regarded payroll professionals, the American Payroll Association’s President and the Executive Vice President for Payroll from Entertainment Partners, as they discuss what had to change right away, what innovations are driving further change in payroll operations, and how employer policies for paying and hiring workers have to be modified to meet fiscal, safety and diversity requirements.

In this podcast you will learn …

  • A description of the significant and necessary adjustments/adaptations that were put in place for payroll operations, starting in mid-March with the COVID-19 shutdown
  • How transformative payments technology that is both already available and being developed can improve the employee experience
  • Employer hiring policies that are changing to address post-pandemic work environments and achieve more diverse workforces
