It pays to learn
National Payroll Week (NPW) takes place annually, during the first week of September throughout the UK and the US. The purpose of NPW is to recognise and celebrate the contribution that payroll professionals make, not just to their organisations, but also to the economy at large.
This year NPW runs from the 5th to the 9th of September. The theme for NPW 2016 is ‘It Pays To Learn’: Concentrating on the role that payroll can play in ‘educating the nation. The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPPS), main sponsor of the week within the UK, is encouraging payroll professionals to think how they can expand the financial understanding and therefore wellbeing, of individuals employed by their organisation.
We are taking the sentiment of the week a step further, and seeking to expand the financial understanding and therefore wellbeing, of our customer base by offering the opportunity to learn what they need to know, from an Agresso Payroll expert on Tuesday the 18th of October.

We encourage our customers to use this opportunity in September to make their employees more financially aware, perhaps get them to consider saving through payroll, make sure they understand their wage slips, and employee benefits. Give them a chance to share how and if they use their current benefits, and if not what they would like the company to consider instead.
Let them know exactly what the Payroll Team does for them each month, and how they can assist or get the most out of the process. Take the opportunity to inform them of any changes planned for this year. For ideas and the resources to implement them, come to Integra’s Payroll day on the 5th of September, before holding your own NPW event later in the week.
