How global payroll helps you scale at speed

We live and breathe payroll, carrying out research to better understand how to help our customers. Our 2022 survey1 highlighted that what’s needed more than ever is an efficient, streamlined global payroll solution that can scale quickly to help financial services companies like yours enter new markets.

Understanding your pain points

You’re no doubt aware of the need to transform payroll globally, given the following factors:

  • Remote and flexible working is now mainstream - but 56% of companies can’t access reliable data on staff performance or accuracy
  • Global tax and employment regulations continue to increase – while 40% of respondents inconsistently track compliance performance worldwide2
  • The COVID-19 pandemic ruthlessly exposed staff shortages and inefficient working practices – yet only 46% of respondents have a contingency plan to combat a potential global security breach

So we asked finance and HR executives what aspects of global payroll did they want to improve over the next three years?3 They responded with a wish list.
