Managed Payroll – 4 Questions to ask

In-house knowledge and support – First of all consider how much in-house expertise you have, for example if you have payroll specialists already employed working on other projects then bureau services might suffice, however consider if your in-house team have time to take this on.

Trusted payroll partner – Many companies test out payroll bureau services first, building up a relationship with a trusted payroll company before exploring the benefits of managed payroll. Managed Payroll case studies are also a good way to get a feel for what managed payroll can look like with a new payroll provider.

Is your payroll partner responsive? – Employee satisfaction rides on communication, if your payroll provider is going to be speaking directly with your employees you need to know they’ll get the answers they’ll need. Equally make sure you communicate any change to managed payroll effectively both to existing staff and new hires as they come in, this is essential for building a good company culture too.
