This week is National Payroll Week. Every year after Labor Day, the American Payroll Association (APA) hosts National Payroll Week to help celebrate and thank our payroll professionals. Because payroll professionals play a behind the scenes role, they can often be overlooked. However, this team is responsible for most of employee satisfaction. They are responsible for maintaining accurate records, correcting mistakes, and ensuring timely pay. CRN would like to thank our entire payroll team for all their hard work to roll out compensation each pay period!
Additionally, this week provides an opportunity for payroll education for our workforce.
We asked payroll team member, Aaron, for some of the top things to know, as an employee, about payroll.
- Always make sure that your personal information is up to date.
- Review all your deductions for benefits and taxes. If you see any discrepancies make sure to report them to the HR or Payroll team.
- You can make changes to your W4 at any time. For example, if you need to update your tax withholdings.
- Make sure if your banking info changes for direct deposit that you get it updated ASAP to ensure your next paycheck is paid to the correct account.
