Changing to a Weekly Payroll Cycle
(This post came to me anonymously from an HR practitioner. - Steve)
We currently have a bi-weekly payroll cycle for all of our employees. However, we have multiple locations with primarily hourly part-time people in the roles. We wanted to consider going to a weekly payroll cycle for our hourly employees in all of our locations. We'd keep all office, management and administrative employees on a bi-weekly cycle.
Does anybody have a system like this, or experience in doing this dual type of system?
Any input you have on this would be appreciated.
We handle our hourly staff that way. We have a weekly payroll that pays anyone who tracks their hours. Our bi-weekly payroll is for salaried staff (both salaried, exempt and salaried, non-exempt). But we are also a staffing and recruiting firm, so we pay our external employees (temps) on a weekly basis. We don't have a payroll system (HRIS) that we use, our accounting team processes all weekly and bi-weekly payrolls. Not sure if that helps, but happy to talk more about it if you are interested.
I have experience working with different payroll cycles for different types of employees. Most, if not all payroll vendors, can accommodate what you would like to do. There will be work on your part to segregate the new weekly paid employees if you currently have all of your employees within the same payroll. Let me know if would like more detail.
