Topic: This meeting will cover two topics.

Topic 1: Paving the Way for the Future of Pay | Staying on the Right Side of Compliance

As consumer behaviors continue to change and evolve, so too do the needs of employees when it comes to how they are paid and what they expect from employers in support of their financial wellness. 

Often when it comes to adopting new methods of pay for employees, the biggest hurdle isn’t technology or culture—it’s navigating the complexities of federal and state compliance.  

With the federal government and 50 states each dictating their own (sometimes conflicting) requirements, it can be challenging for to best serve the needs of their employees, while mitigating compliance risk. 

The session also explores insights on the future of pay and best practices to navigate federal and state compliance complexities. Learn how your company can leverage pay as a competitive advantage when recruiting the next generation of workers, while mitigating compliance risk. 

Topic 2: Managing A Payroll Department

What is the difference between management and leadership? What is your leadership style? In this session, we will discuss various leadership styles and how they apply to payroll management. We will discuss the fundamental skills of management as well as how we can employer ourselves and our team to become stronger leaders.
