National Payroll Week Begins Labor Day

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.

This software is so much more than what we had before. There are more reports available, processing of payroll is much easier, less work. The task of accumulating all of the information for the install was stressful, but the pay off was well worth it!
