The digital streamlining of payroll should be a priority for employers, regardless of industry or size. That’s why there is starting to be a reliance on new technologies that aim to transform payroll for the benefit of both employers and employees, and more so in commercial cleaning and facilities management sectors where hours and locations can be varied. If we assess the efficiencies of payroll processing across different businesses and roles, we need to establish what is important for payroll back office staff, and what their key pain points are. Despite the rise in digital processes and the use of smartphones, there remains some level of resistance from the payroll administrators, who are reluctant to adopt online employee portals.
Streamlining payroll processes and adopting intuitive cloud-based management technology in your FM or cleaning company can be a double winner; meaning both the employer and the worker get to realise the benefits. With many systems already under pressure, payroll is a drain on administration and often takes several days to complete. Providing your employees with a portal, wallet or app that easily shows them things like wage slips, money transfers, PAYE, requests for drawdowns etc. means they are in control and responsible for their financial well-being and financial visibility. As a business, you will benefit the rewards that this automation brings and will quickly realise the value that cloud-based systems can bring to your company.
