Tools that will help save you time and energy
It’s hard to stay organized with your schedule when you have a busy job in HR or payroll. Take for example, those of you who are payroll managers for mid-sized companies (and if you’re not, I’m sure most of this still applies to you). Your regular responsibilities include running the payroll for over 600 multi-state employees, constantly monitoring the company benefits packages, and overseeing the 401k plan (to name a few). On top of this, you have annual duties such as audits, tax reporting, and then the unexpected meetings that pop up. I haven’t even mentioned that you have a busy life at home. Staying organized is sometimes intimidating and difficult for professionals at any level. Sometimes the mere act of writing our to-do list makes us more overwhelmed.
