National Payroll Week is Coming!

National Payroll Week 2014

It’s getting close to that time of year again — the American Payroll Association’s National Payroll Week celebration will take place from September 1 through September 5, 2014. And as usual, in preparation for the event, they’re running their annual “Getting Paid in America” survey.

You can access the survey through September 5, but don’t put it off too long (else you’ll forget). And you don’t want to do that, because when you complete the survey, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a free paycheck and a trip for two to Las Vegas. Sweet!

So, you may be wondering, what is National Payroll Week all about?

From the National Payroll Week website:

NPW celebrates the unique partnership among America’s workers, their companies, the payroll professionals who pay them and critical government programs such as, social security, Medicare, fair labor standards and child support… This special week celebrates many things important to each of us who work. From the economic, cultural, and social achievements of workers, to the significance of “an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay,” National Payroll Week is a celebration on many levels.

The American Payroll Association started National Payroll Week in 1996 to coincide with Labor Day. Take the survey, and if you win the drawing, be sure to let me know!

    Technology changes day by day. One of the best changes that has been introduced in recent times are the payroll time clocks. Days are gone when you had to manually check out the attendance register, match the time, make the adjustments and then process the salary.Now all this becomes so easy with payroll time clocks

      You are so right that technology has made payroll processing much easier, quicker and more accurate than in days past! It’s really interesting to consider how much things have changed, even in just the past few years — even more so when compared with decades ago. Exciting times we live in, eh? 🙂

    In recent times there’s so much technological development happen in the area of cloud based software and application specially in the payroll business. The important thing behind this development is the research as well as user feedback as it helped a lot in developing more user friendly and advanced software.

    • Diane A says:

      Absolutely. Listening to your users is crucial when developing any software, especially something as vital to the business as payroll systems. And cloud-based systems such as our own AcroTime are definitely making life easier for HR departments and payroll administrators, keeping sensitive data safe while offering secure anytime, anywhere access.
