A Payroll Executive’s primary role is leading and developing an effective, efficient and knowledgeable global payroll organization. There is no compromise to ensuring compliance with global government regulations and data privacy requirements. The payroll executive must work effectively and balance internal stakeholder requirements (Finance, Benefits, Security, IT, Compensation, etc.) with payroll practices, schedules and regulations, all while securing a seat at the executive table to develop their strategic thinking and making their voice heard.

Hot Topics

  • Developing and managing an effective global payroll organization
  • Staying compliant with government and customer requirements
  • Designing, implementing, and maintaining effective audit and internal payroll controls
  • Evaluating, implementing and managing third party solutions, vendors and services
  • Analytics and reporting for both tactical and strategic analysis
  • Effectively dealing with payroll challenges required by M&A activities
