There may not be a lot of streamers and balloons floating around the payroll department, but this week is the time to celebrate what it does.

Now in its 11th year, National Payroll Week (Sept. 12 to Sept. 16) is a chance to say thanks to the hardworking professionals in payroll. It’s also a chance for payroll practitioners, and organizations, to take a step back and look at what payroll brings to the table.

Earlier this year, the Canadian Payroll Association completed its second survey of members and their employers to assess the roles and responsibilities of payroll professionals and to identify opportunities for them to add more value to their organizations.
