Four Reasons Why Leveraging Payroll Staff Augmentation Provides the Vital Support Your Team Requires
Written by Maggie Gavigan
Depending on the size of your business, manual payroll processing can be exceedingly complicated. Having a solid payroll team in place is a must, as a lack of expertise can lead to compliance issues, a dissatisfied and often overworked staff, and high tax penalties.

Keeping up with constant changes to your organizational structure is not easy. The never-ending cycle of employee promotions, job changes, resignations, and new hires can disrupt staffing and budgeting plans and detract your team from their ability to focus on more higher-level company issues. At RJ Reliance, our Position Control solution organizes your workforce by position rather than by employee, creating a framework of positions for all the jobs within your organization. RJ Reliance will help you obtain accurate, real-time views of your talent and a complete view of your overall organizational structure.
Within traditional person-based position management systems, employee attributes, like their supervisor, benefits, and pay grade, are tied to individual employee records. In other words, when an employee leaves, their attributed data is lost and must be reentered once a new hire fills that position. RJ Reliance’s Position Control solution instead ties these attributes to the position itself and auto-assigns them to new hires who fill that role after someone leaves. When hiring a new employee, you only need to enter the employee data and the position name and number into the system, reducing the administrative burden of hiring and onboarding.
RJ Reliance’s Position Control solution enables you to view your entire workforce, their employee attributes, position details, and more. The system is designed to provide you with a streamlined inventory of all the positions within your organization, whether they're current, planned, filled, or vacant. Organizing all this data into one place increases visibility into your position vacancies and staffing needs.
Increasing workforce visibility is also the first step to achieving budgeting compliance. Budgeting issues are often caused by blind spots that go unnoticed until they appear in annual reports. With our Position Control technology, you can control and manage your organization structure, including financial budgeting and headcount. Data integration between your HR and financial systems grants you the ability to maximize your budget and control costs.
Since 2005, RJ Reliance has combined decades of HCM specialization with tailored, white-glove technology offerings to deliver transformative client outcomes. Contact us today to learn more about how our Position Control solution can optimize your organizational structure and improve your ability to make informed, data-driven position management and budgeting decisions.

Regardless of your department or industry, any working professional can agree that payroll is not the place to make errors. According to a survey from The Workforce Institute, 49 percent of U.S. workers will start looking for a new job after experiencing only two problems with their paycheck. Performing payroll manually is risky as it is filled with inaccuracies, headaches, and inefficiencies.
At RJ Reliance, we have the solution: automation. Our Virtual Practitioner Service alleviates the pain of time-consuming, repetitive processes. Additionally, automating payroll eliminates human-made errors and frees up time for your payroll employees to dedicate to higher-level procedures. Here are seven ways to cut costs, save time, and promote your payroll team through automation.
Our Virtual Practitioner will automatically pull employee hours and salary information to generate and submit payroll for the period. All pay run actions – from start to finish – will be performed in the background while you devote your time and energy elsewhere.
Through the power of automation, alerts will immediately inform you of any changes in important employee data. Notification routing of missing employee information will fix any defects and maximize your overall payroll accuracy.
Automation technology will mitigate errors in benefits processing and payout. Our solutions allow you to ensure that employees always receive up-to-date benefit payouts as different caps are met or as plans change.
RJ Reliance’s Virtual Practitioner will audit between your payroll and core systems, ensuring that all your data is consistent and readily available. Automated reporting eliminates human error and reduces the need for additional keystrokes. By providing your company with a single source of truth across all departments, you will be confident in your data integrity.
Tax rules and regulations are continually changing, and it can be challenging to keep up. Payroll software allows for automated filings of federal, state, and local taxes –– all logged and prepared to be stored safely in case of an audit.
Let's say one of your employees experiences a pay change that affects prior periods. Payroll automation can calculate and post adjustments relative to retroactive payroll change, modifying the employee's next paycheck accordingly.
Simplify your employee termination checklist and ensure that final payments go smoothly. Virtual Practitioner will properly reconcile any outstanding expenses owed to an employee for their final payroll and remove them from the automatic payment system.
RJ Reliance's Virtual Practitioner will reduce your payroll process from days to just hours, affording your staff the time to focus on strategy, compliance, and other operations. With less time spent on mundane tasks, you can fine-tune, train, and enhance your payroll team to develop more specialized skills.
