Empowering your line-managers, freeing-up your payroll staff

In a recent Accenture report entitled The Platform Economy, it was revealed that “81% of executives say [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][that] platform-based business models will be core to their growth strategy within three years.This interesting claim makes it clear that managers and business owners have recognised that an excellent software platform may well be a significant contributor towards the ensured longevity of an organisation’s success.

Whether you’re a business owner, a manager or supervisor, we can all identify with the frustration of having to find and/or collate information in order to make a necessary business-related decision. For this reason, since your time is precious to you, pressure rapidly accumulates when you feel that your time is being misspent. When your employees demand immediate answers, there is no greater frustration than having to stop what you’re doing, in order to find the relevant information that your employees are pressuring you for.

Disempowering situations result in frustration

Now, cast your thoughts back to the countless, tedious authorisations and forwarding of claim documents that you’ve had to attend to. Or the innumerable leave forms that you’ve had to forward to your payroll department. (Come to think of it, perhaps we ought to spare a few sympathetic thoughts for payroll departments everywhere!)

For example, have you ever been in the situation where—when busy with the planning of your staffing schedule—you’ve had no clue which of your staff will be taking a period of leave?

Or, have you ever attempted to resolve an overtime-related remuneration query without having due access rights to the necessary system records in order to troubleshoot the query? Does this not compel you to take a walk to your payroll department so that they can provide you with adequate additional information in order to be able to resolve the staff query that you’re dealing with?

Similar examples abound: trying to (manually) run the company’s performance evaluation process, or trying to report on staff-performance trends for the past three years, or being charged with accountability of an entire recruitment campaign that necessitates the collation of several interviewers’ interview notes.

Paymaster understands and identifies with your frustrations

At Paymaster, we understand and certainly do identify with some of the frustrations that you may well continue to experience.

Paymaster understands that you fairly acknowledge that you know you’re expected to ‘deliver the goods’, regardless of these frustrations. After all, as a salaried manager or supervisor, you’re employed to make a significant difference within the organisation despite these frustrations. And, if you happen to be the business owner, Paymaster also understands that you’d much rather be spending most of your valuable time ‘steering the ship’ (i.e. your own business) into the exciting unchartered waters of optimal future profitability and future organisational success.

At Paymaster, we understand that your job-portfolio places a high priority on achieving results which will most likely be measured by successes that are best recognised on the bottom line.

Paymaster understands that your valuable time and energy is of paramount importance to your organisation too.
