Global payroll in a post-pandemic world

Location changes bring with them a range of questions and complexities - many international employees have indicated a desire to deliver their duties to their employers from their home countries for long periods. Collaborative digital tools and innovative communication methods along with standard video conferencing make this very achievable, so they feel within their rights to request this.

“Using Payslip, we can manage all our payrolls across 9 in - county vendors on one platform. When the global COVID-19 pandemic arose, it was not an issue from a payroll perspective, and critically getting everyone paid. The Payslip platform enabled continuity for our international payroll service including the fast and seamless implementation of the Payslip Employment Self Service during this time.”

Colin Smith, Director International Payroll

The war for talent is intense -recruitment and retention has never been more important as we emerge from the pandemic so global employers have an obligation to listen to the needs of their employees in this regard. But the legal, tax and legislative implications are huge, so global organizations need to think very carefully about the manner in which they look to meet new demands from a globally dispersed workforce. Increased recruitment of remote employees is already happening as is stronger investment in technology stacks around communication and collaboration tools. Some multinational companies have already taken proactive steps in this regard as they look to be early adopters of this “work from anywhere “concept. For technology native and digitally savvy organizations, this is all very plausible - but not every organization has the advanced technology capabilities to move towards this model.
