Inefficient processes and low-performing teams can make payroll an even more costly process for companies. Plus, the many forms and systems that payroll requires to navigate can make this process more complicated than it should be. Take a look at some of these payroll best practices that will help alleviate unwanted stress, improve performance, and optimize efficiency.
A payroll manual is an important asset for any company. Acting as the first step to any questions employees may have about different systems, a payroll manual saves others time as they don’t have to answer variations of the same questions continuously. Distribute the manual electronically to ensure everyone has access to it and update as changes arise.
Payroll is complicated, but there are ways to simplify the processes. Having a consistent and straightforward way of performing tasks can reduce errors and create a more efficient workflow. A few options include keeping everyone on the same pay schedule, encouraging employees to sign up to receive their paycheck via direct deposit, and outsourcing where you can. With the ever-changing regulations and complexities in taxes, outsourcing some of these processes can help save you time by letting experts in the area do the work for you. RJ Reliance is here to do just that with our customizable technologies developed to automate and simplify your most persistent business operations.
Manually inputting everything is becoming an outdated practice. Not only is this time-consuming, but it’s also prone to human error. That’s why when it comes to repetitive tasks, it is time to think about automation. RJ Reliance is an industry leader when it comes to helping businesses across all industries and sizes automate aspects of their payroll processes, saving them time and money.
Keeping your employees happy and engaged in their work will lead to more productivity due to high employee morale. Asking for feedback, creating a culture of collaboration, and making everyone feel included can help motivate employees and lead to more employee feedback. Furthermore, employees will be more valuable to your organization when they continue to learn new skills and grow. By offering ongoing training, employees can advance in their careers, which will increase productivity and lead to higher levels of employee satisfaction.
To keep a competitive edge, companies must continue to innovate and stay abreast of new technologies. While it can be overwhelming to keep up with your fast-paced industry, it is necessary to stay ahead. RJ Reliance is constantly innovating and finding new ways to automate functions with new technology developments. Let us help you make sure you are investing in your company’s future.

Holistic HR resides entirely in the mindset of the employee. Companies viewing employees strictly as people to accomplish tasks in the workplace with little to no personal value is the way of the past. More and more companies are emphasizing the importance of a healthy and robust work culture.
Holistic HR practices viewing employees as people with real emotions, desires, and values rather than accomplishing one job within a specific set of parameters, making work a robotic lifestyle. This HR style means the team understands how their employees think and feel and push them toward success in their work-life while maintaining the integrity of their values.
Often, HR is the department with the least amount of time and resources devoted to it. Holistic HR aims to change and evolve organizations to a point where employees feel valued in the workplace. Companies who utilize this practice see a more fulfilled, energetic, and productive worker leading to drastic improvements for profits and ROI. This increase in added value is due to employees being able to have a better work-life balance that allows for a clearer headspace and overall satisfaction. These elements drive them to want to work harder and more efficiently.
We can see the tangible benefits of implementing holistic HR best practices in Salesforce is the second-best place to work in the US with 26 billion dollars in revenue and rose 53 places, coming in at 137 on the Fortune 500 list. This impressive growth is not shocking considering one of their central operating values is valuing their employees and utilizing Holistic HR.
Similarly, a survey by UnitedHealthcare found that implementing Holistic HR produces significant benefits for companies and employees. Specifically, having more automated systems (reducing stress), offering stipends for massages, marathon entrance fees, and nap rooms have led to 62% of people increasing their productivity levels and 56% recording fewer sick days. A luxury hotel that implemented these practices reported a retention rate of 82%, which increased the value of each employee on average by $5,864.
You cannot accomplish the figures Salesforce brings in without the proper systems to help get you there, and that is where RJ Reliance comes in. Our primary focus is to help you customize our automated systems to fit your business and HR needs. Our HCM systems support HR, payroll, time management, time & attendance, workforce management, recruiting & talent acquisition, onboarding, benefits, and compensation. Many of these tasks are glazed over, leading to disgruntled employees, potential lawsuits, and overall lack of productivity. Our systems are as straightforward or complex as you need them to be and are configured and installed by our team of experts. Listen to the stats, implement automated systems, offer wellness programs, and view your staff as more than just a worker there for a designated job. Investing now can lead to massive returns later.

After a whirlwind of a year, corporate offices across the country are transitioning back to in-person work. Because changes in working environments have the potential to induce additional stress on employees, it is extremely important that companies prioritize employee wellbeing now more than ever. The pandemic has left American workers feeling overwhelmed and overworked. As a result, it is imperative that employers help manage employee stress during their transition back into the workplace.
Technology is a valuable asset that can be utilized to smooth this transition period for employees. Specifically, workforce management technologies, systems that automate and integrate human capital management (HCM), like those created alongside RJ Reliance, can be utilized to eliminate time-consuming and mundane manual processes. Doing so helps reduce employee stress by allowing for improved office communication, prioritization of meaningful work, and utilization of widely adaptable and consistent processes.
Communication within an organization is immensely important as it impacts employee satisfaction, levels of productivity, decision making, and company relationships. Ineffective communication is highly correlated to job dissatisfaction. Communication can easily be improved by integrating and unifying company systems and processes, such as those within the HCM department. Once company data is connected across systems, employees are on the same page as one another and communication is made easy.
By automating processes, employees no longer have to worry about completing tasks unrelated to their role in the office and are free to prioritize meaningful core business functions. Looking into the long term, this is an easy way to prevent employee burnout and increase employee satisfaction. Purpose driven work helps to inspire and motivate employees and cultivate a productive work environment. Plus, implementing efficient processes alleviates the pain of time-consuming and repetitive processes as well as helping to reduce employee error and frustration.
While your work environment may change, it is important that information systems stay interconnected so that employees can easily access key information anytime and anywhere. Incorporating HCM technologies that increase automation and integration help contribute to process consistency. Such consistencies help alleviate employee frustrations by expediting the time it takes to complete simple daily tasks and improving employees ability to work efficiently and collaboratively even when asynchronous.
Since 2005, RJ Reliance has been alleviating employee headaches by simplifying crucial workforce management processes within organizations. Interested in discovering how RJ Reliance can streamline your business? Reach out today to discuss with our experts!
