Why should enterprises standardize their payroll processes?
Salary computation is one of the monthly critical procedures of the human resources department (HR department) that requires exactitude. As a result, standardizing the salary calculation process is always considered by every organization because without a standard process, the HR department will spend a lot of time in the working process, possibly encountering legal risks, being prone to making mistakes, or even repeating old mistakes.
Standardizing the payroll process entails setting regulations for different operations, such as identifying revenue, profit, and salary form; developing a wage structure, bonus, and performance assessment system for each position, and so on. The homogeneity of the payroll process will be measured by efficiency factors, the time it takes the HR department to execute the payroll operation, and the payment of personnel at the same level in the organization.
Developing a standard payroll process allows the human resources department to simply identify the purpose, sequence, manner, and quality control of the activities to be completed in the payroll operation. When work is optimized in the proper procedure, the HR department will have more time to focus on other development goals such as enhancing the working environment and operational processes, assisting businesses in developing a stronger and more sustainable basis for growth.
However, many organizations keep struggling or failing in the process of standardization because they misunderstand the comprehension of the payroll process, have limited time, and the incompeted HR department.
