Prepare for Growth by Upgrading Your Payroll

Prepare for Growth by Upgrading Your Payroll

The good news is that your business is growing and is expected to keep growing. All of your hard work and creativity is paying off!

With growth comes challenges, however. That’s not necessarily “bad” news, but keeping up with growth is crucial to your business’s future success. Growth also equals change, and change may mean letting go of tasks that you once handled but for which you no longer have time.

One role that you can let go of is payroll administrator. Upgrading to a payroll processing company saves you time and money, and helps ensure that you can concentrate on your company’s continued growth.

Solutions for Growing Your Business

The growth stage is an exciting time for you and your business. You're accomplishing your goals and you finally see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. But what next? Here are some ideas for meeting new challenges as you move forward:

1. Continue to focus on the customer

Whether your company is in its initial stages or experiencing rapid growth, you must always keep your customers’ needs at the forefront. If your customers are used to a high level of support, don’t let that support become compromised as you grow bigger. And always pay attention to your customers’ ideas and suggestions.

2. Outsource payroll

There are many reasons why upgrading to payroll software through a reputable payroll provider will help keep you and your business on the growth track.

  • Payroll enables you to be more accurate with your budget.
  • Outsourcing payroll helps keep employees happy. If future growth brings with it incorrect paychecks and other payroll mistakes, you run the risk of angering – and losing – employees.
  • Research shows many small businesses spend nearly 80 hours a year on federal taxes. Meanwhile, you also have state and local taxes that must be paid. Outsourcing your payroll frees up your time while ensuring that the complicated business of taxes gets handled correctly – while helping you to avoid costly IRS penalties.
  • Payroll software helps build the foundation of all future HR processes.

3. Understand why your business is growing

You’re obviously doing something right if your business is growing. Knowing what sets you apart from your competitors is important and should continue to be part of your business model moving forward. It’s often easy to lose sight of the core values that helped you to achieve growth.

4. Determine your staffing needs

The chances are that you’ll need to add more employees to keep up with your company’s growth. The new year is a great time to step back and analyze your current staff and whether it’s robust enough to handle increasing tasks. Before adding new employees, you may want to hire temporary workers and freelancers first to assess how additional staffers fit into your business model.

5. Have the willingness to adapt

Successful entrepreneurs can adapt to changing ideas and trends. Being flexible enough to welcome potential change and making decisions concerning change helps ensure a smooth growth phase.
