NPW - Getting Paid in America

by Symmetry Payroll News | Jul 31, 2019

National Payroll Week is coming up quickly! Across the country on September 2-6, businesses will recognize their dedicated payroll professionals who fulfill the essential duties of ensuring payday arrives without interruption week after week, month after month.

Even if you aren't a payroll professional, there are still many important reasons, even some lucrative ones, that will be taking place.

Win a Free Paycheck and a Dream Vacation

To be eligible to win a free paycheck and dream vacation, participate in the annual "Getting Paid In America" online survey. This quick survey asks various questions to gain insight from employees to gauge changing trends and attitudes towards payroll and time and attendance topics. One randomly selected survey participant will win a grand prize of a free paycheck and a dream vacation for two. The survey is live now and will remain available through September 6. Please see Official Contest Terms and Conditions.

Get a Paycheck Check-up

Do you have a good understanding of how your wages are calculated and the best strategies for maximizing your earnings? If your answer wasn’t “yes," then stop by your payroll department for tips on what you might be able to adjust on your paycheck that could have a big impact. Making some small changes could result in an instant raise on your next paycheck. You can also use the NPW resource library and paycheck calculators to help you better understand your paychecks.

This year, "payroll saves the day" as we celebrate the unsung payroll heroes responsible for getting employees in America paid accurately and on-time, every time.
