Introducing weekly payroll and support for flexible workers in the UK

Payroll is tedious, manual, time-consuming, and error-prone. You have to ensure you’re always compliant while paying your employees accurately, on time, every time.

It’s easier when you’re a team of 10, with everyone on a straightforward, monthly payroll. But as you scale in team size, introduce benefits and enable teams to work more flexibly, your payroll admin increases, most times by 4x.

People, Finance, and Payroll teams often bear the brunt of growing payroll challenges.

  • Imagine running payroll multiple times every month or managing employees who work a non-conventional schedule like part-time, flexitime, zero hours, shift patterns, etc. The more complex payroll gets, the more challenging it becomes to manage it – be it increased payroll admin or a heightened risk of errors.
  • All employers want to provide a smooth payroll experience to employees but it becomes especially important in industries where employees heavily rely on their wages.

While outsourcing to payroll bureaus seems like a reliable option, you’re forced to build and manage processes to cater to the demands and timelines of your payroll providers. It also gets more difficult to have complete transparency or control over your payroll. On the other end, legacy ERPs are expensive and limited with their capabilities and user experience.
