Learn the “Tricks to the Trade” of Writing Payroll Procedures


In this day and age, each and every department is expected to have written procedures for all their tasks. Payroll is definitely no exception to this expectation. Yet many payroll departments are still attempting to get started let alone to finish this long and arduous task. Writing payroll procedures is an arduous task that many payroll professionals know they need to do but just can’t seem to get started. Or they start the project but get bogged down by the sheer volume of labor involved! But by having the knowledge of how to document your payroll procedures correctly and a clear understanding of what you need to accomplish this task will set you quickly on your way to success!

This session by expert speaker Vicki M. Lambert will cover the “tricks to the trade” of writing procedures. You will see how breaking up the task into 30 minute increments can allow your department to write fully documented procedures in hours instead of days and weeks. Vicki will also discuss how it doesn’t affect the final outcome if you want to set up the entire list of procedures needed to be done before getting started or just grab a topic and go—both ways lead to procedures being written with the right organization.

Nothing will stand in the way of getting those procedures written as Vicki will explore ways to work around payroll deadlines and staffing shortages. And, as an added bonus, you can turn this monumental project into a positive learning experience by using it to train your staff and yourself along the way!  And if you follow the suggestions made in this session not only will you find a way to get the procedures written but may even have a bit of fun along the way!

The information presented in this session will help set you on your way to finally accomplishing that item on your to-do list that has lingered for so long—writing the procedures for your payroll department.
