Read Frequently Asked Questions

Excellent customer service assists payroll in its daily operations within the department rather than for its outside customers. This training program will examine how a correctly implemented payroll department customer service policy will ensure that communications remain open and clear. By setting down in writing what the payroll department can and cannot do legally, or will or will not be able to do, right up front goes a long way towards preventing future misunderstandings, miscommunications and the resulting conflicts which cause the department to lose valuable time handling this conflict.

Course "Customer Service with a Payroll Twist 2016" has been pre-approved by HRCI as eligible for 1.5 credits towards a participant's recertification upon full completion.

Why Should You Attend:

Customer service is a hot buzz word for the twenty-first century business environment. But if we use the traditional definition of customer service to mean “a policy to ensure customers receive what they need so they will return to use our product or service” and apply it to payroll, it doesn’t really work.

This webinar will discuss establishing a customer service policy with a payroll twist that creates an environment within the department that focuses on increasing productivity and efficiency rather than on the customer needs. This in turn actually allows the department to offer better service to its customers in the long run. It sets up when the department is available and when it is not. What it needs and when it needs it to ensure that all of its customers are paid on time and in compliance with all labor and tax laws.
