It’s that time of the year payroll industry, get ready to celebrate! National Payroll Week (NPW) takes place next week on September 2 and runs through September 6.
Always coinciding with Labor Day, this recognition week was introduced by the American Payroll Association in 1996 and aims to recognize all of the institutions and people that are involved in paying America. This diverse industry includes the workforce, the professionals who process payroll, the companies who employ us and government programs who support payroll. According to the APA, together this group contributes and collects 70.5% of the U.S. Treasury revenue through the payroll withholding system.
Many payroll groups celebrate this week through community outreach and instructional services. One of the goals of the week is to educate the American workers to help them become more familiar with the breakdown of their paychecks and the wage-withholding system.
Check out the APA website, it is constantly updated to ensure there is a constant resource and information for the payroll community.
