Tips and Strategies for Payroll Professionals Wearing Multiple Hats

Date: Wednesday, December 9, 2020

Research conducted by the Canadian Payroll Association shows that the majority of payroll professionals handle other responsibilities beyond payroll.

This is particularly true in smaller organizations and employers that have outsourced payroll processing to a third party provider. Whether you are part payroll professional and part HR practitioner, accountant, office manager, entrepreneur or executive assistant, you need to be able to balance the often conflicting demands of different aspects of your role. You also need to understand the goals and objectives of different functions, be able to delegate efficiently and effectively, manage your workload, work with trusted advisors and access professional development opportunities relating to different parts of your role.

In this webinar you will learn tips and strategies for managing multiple and conflicting priorities, delegating tasks to others, leading projects, managing internal and external relationships, working with outsourcing providers and consultants, giving pushback, managing your career and developing and acquiring the skills necessary to make you more effective in your current role.
