PAY­ROLL AD­MIN­IS­TRA­TION

Pay­roll ad­min­is­tra­tion done pay­roll man­agers who spe­cial­ists within the hu­man re­sources field who over­see the daily pay­roll pro­cesses of an or­ga­ni­za­tion. These pro­cesses in­clude is­su­ing em­ployee pay­checks, record­ing leaves of ab­sence, ver­i­fy­ing num­ber of hours worked and keep­ing records of changes in em­ploy­ment.

Part of what makes a school di­vi­sion unique from other or­ga­ni­za­tions is the diver­sity of the po­si­tions within its work­force in­clud­ing fac­ulty, clas­si­fied staff and ad­min­is­tra­tors, and both part-time and full-time, as well as hourly and salar­ied em­ploy­ees. Pro­fes­sion­als in a wide va­ri­ety of spe­cial­ized po­si­tions come to­gether to work as a co­he­sive unit with one goal in mind — pre­pare stu­dents for the fu­ture.

How­ever, this nec­es­sary but vast range of po­si­tions can cause headaches within the pay­roll de­part­ment. Pay­roll man­agers must track at­ten­dance, ben­e­fits, leaves, over­time, and tax de­duc­tions, among other de­tails, all at the high­est lev­els of con­sis­tency and ac­cu­racy.

Even in a tech­no­log­i­cally mod­ern world, many dis­tricts still rely on man­ual pro­cesses that are in­ef­fi­cient and prone to er­rors.

In pay­roll ad­min­is­tra­tion, it is im­por­tant to tell em­ploy­ees that this isn’t just about sav­ing the district of­fice time and money; you also want to en­sure their pay­roll is be­ing man­aged fairly and ac­cu­rately.

With an up­dated, mod­ern pay­roll sys­tem in place, teach­ers, staff and ad­min­is­tra­tors have more time for the most im­por­tant part of their job — help­ing stu­dents achieve.
