Does Payroll Need To Always Be A Burden?

A business owner has a long list of responsibilities and some of those responsibilities could even be termed as burdens. The administrative paperwork involved with state and federal labor laws can take up a lot of time that could be better spent on something else. In some cases, a corporate financial responsibility can be looked at as an investment in the company's future, which takes the edge off of dealing with it each and every week. One good example of this kind of investment is payroll.

Your company's payroll is something that your employees look forward to for a variety of reasons. The most compelling reason is that staff paychecks allow staff members to afford their lifestyles and be able to enjoy interests outside of the office. There are many different reasons why payroll can be looked at as something of significance to your company, as opposed to viewing it as a recurring burden that puts a financial strain on your organization.

Payroll Reflects The Value Placed On Your Staff

As a business owner, it is always easier to analyze something if it is put into numbers. A reliable set of numbers allows you to place a value on something and it also helps when it comes to comparing corporate assets from one year to the next. Your payroll allows you to put a number on your staff's productivity and the compare that number to the actual output that you get each year. Company's sales and profit numbers can be compared to payroll for each year to make sure that the company is getting the best value from its staff.

When you put a number on your staff by using payroll, it turns payroll into an important corporate economic indicator. Every business owner finds convenience and value in being able to utilize economic indicators to map company progress. This turns payroll into a number that is carefully monitored each day and not a burden.

Payroll Motivates Employees

Motivated employees offer a significant amount of value to your company, and one of the strongest employee motivators is payroll. In some cases, it is not even the monetary value of payroll that causes it to act as staff motivation. The mere fact that payroll is paid on time and in full can act as a strong morale booster for the entire company. The efficiency of payroll becomes even more powerful when your competition starts missing payroll or develops payroll issues.

When you offer competitive wages to your employees and you pay employees on time, then your staff tends to act as recruiters for your company's future. You will find that motivated employees are eager to refer friends and family members as prospective employees to help the company's future growth. The competitive nature of your compensation and your dedication to efficient payroll practices motivates your employees to take a vested interest in the success of your organization. It transforms payroll from a burden to an exciting employee motivation tool that boost morale and strengthens recruiting.

The Challenges To Efficient Payroll Practices

Once you are able to transition payroll from a burden to a very powerful business tool, you then start to examine ways that you can make your payroll practices more efficient. In order to capitalize on the benefits of strong compensation and the consistency of reliable payroll numbers, you have to meet your payroll obligation each and every pay period. The ideal solution is a strong cash flow that comes from your invoiced sales, but this is not always available.

Past due invoices can be one of the biggest challenges to efficient payroll practices. Your invoiced sales may be brisk, but customers who allow their invoices to go 30 or 60 days past due slow your cash flow and make it extremely difficult to meet payroll obligations with cash.

Borrowing Funds Can Make Payroll A Burden

One of the frustrating things about transitioning payroll from a burden to a benefit is the need to borrow funds to sustain consistent payroll payments. The most common solution that companies come up with is a bank line of credit. But the compounding interest and recurring service charges make a bank line of credit an inefficient way to meet payroll obligations.

In emergency situations, a company may turn to a bank loan to fund payroll. But a bank loan is a long-term obligation that should never be used to meet recurring payroll obligations. Not only that, but the unpredictable nature of bank loan approvals could cause you to miss your payroll payments if you are relying on the bank to get back to you in a timely manner.
