Recruitment agencies have a diverse range of complexities associated with payroll management. There is a magnitude of legislations in place to protect temporary workers such as minimum wage regulations, (which are subject to annual changes), the agency workers regulations, holiday accruals, SSP and much more. In addition, there are different types of staffing solutions including temporary workers, salaried staff and those on long-term contracts that could raise issues with maternity and paternity pay in addition to auto-enrolment processes.
For the smaller sized recruitment company, it is a minefield to navigate efficiently. For the larger recruitment agencies, it will be a drain on internal resources to manage everything in-house.
Streamlining payroll processes that aren’t using automation for timesheet collection and collation to pay staff based on the actual time worked and not estimates is time consuming. That’s time your team could be doing more productive tasks that would work to sustain and build your recruitment agency, rather than have staff do the repetitive, mundane tasks associated with payroll.
