Whether you manage a staff of three or 33, navigating the payroll process for your employees can be challenging. To better understand this process, consider the following to help you manage small business payroll effectively.
- Gather important employee data.
The payroll process starts before your new employee has even officially begun working. In order to process a new hire successfully and add them to the payroll, you must gather a significant amount of information from them, including the employee’s full legal name, birth date, social security number, address, and proof that they are legally able to work in the United States. It is also critical to develop a process for safeguarding sensitive employee data; your employees are trusting you with their personal information.
