Payroll Process Outsourcing

Workspend is a trusted payroll partner and Employer of Record for your contingent workforce

Your payroll is quite possibly your biggest single operating expense. Don’t leave it to chance.

We have a transparent, fit-for-purpose solution that adapts and scales with your business.

What is Payroll Process Outsourcing?

Organizations increasingly rely on a flexible workforce to maximize and balance their productivity across their enterprise, but at times managing it can be a challenge. A Payroll Process Outsourcer takes on the responsibility of managing your payroll. You can pass on some or all of your administration is passed to a specialist third-party provider like Workspend.

We specialize in managing payroll for contingent workers (such as freelancers, independent contractors, vendors and other non-employees). Our series of solutions – and a modular technology ecosystem based on best-in-class components – integrates with your existing business infrastructure to deliver payroll services each pay cycle.

While every solution is tailored to client needs, the key building blocks of our PPO service include:

  • Scoping your payroll requirements and designing a best-fit service delivery solution
  • Helping to establish base-line performance data (so you can measure how well you’re improving)
  • Marketing your brand to attract the talent you need
  • Managing day-to-day operations, risk, and governance – to ensure workers are paid correctly and on time
  • Managing compliance, risk, and governance
  • Minimizing payroll costs
  • Exposing and reporting any inconsistencies and abuse
  • Stop over-paying for talent by reporting on market rates
  • Operating a platform that automates and optimizes processes

Do you need a PPO?

Sometimes payroll can become a business challenge or risk that’s better delivered by entrusting it to an organization that does it as a core discipline.  Payroll is a big cost, and when not done right, it can become a serious business-continuity risk. 

You know when you need a Payroll Process Outsourcer when:

  • You have a high volume of contracts, difficulties in maintaining cost control
  • Administrative and corporate capacity burdens far exceed ‘cost of doing business’ acceptable levels
  • You need more transparency over indirect spend
  • Changes to legislative frameworks (and the law) make risks of co-employment and non-compliance too great
  • The number of supplier relationships makes the overheads of managing an on-demand workforce untenable
