Session Topics

Payroll Accounting: How Important Is It?
Webinar 1: July 31 (EDT) or August 1 (MDT)

Since salaries, taxes, and employee benefits are typically the largest expenses for most companies, payroll is under close financial scrutiny from top management. In this session, we will discuss why the accuracy of the payroll, the payroll journal entries and the payroll reconciliation of the related accounts are vital to the company's general ledger, financial statements, and to the well-being of your organization.

Final Pay: What Must Be included?
Webinar 2: August 7 (EDT) or August 8 (MDT)

You just found out about another termination. What must I pay out in the final check? When is it due to the employee? We will explore the general answers to these questions and more. We will also show you where you can find the information about when final pay is due depending on the "worked in" state and the type of termination - involuntary or voluntary.

Interacting With Multiple Generations
Webinar 3: August 14 (EDT) or August 15 (MDT)

Generational diversity has excellent potential - growing and learning from each other's ideas and experiences - but the potential for conflict and misunderstanding is ever-present. Understanding the attributes of each generation is essential for leaders to harness different working styles, boost collaboration and creativity, and provide insights to engage the entire workforce.

Skillful Collaboration
Webinar 4: August 21 (EDT) or August 22 (MDT)

Successful collaboration involves far more than just working side-by-side. It's a process that requires attitudes, skills, and practices that can be learned and strengthened. Mastering them will not only make your job easier, it will help you become more successful professionally.

The Intricate Art of Juggling Sick Leave
Webinar 5: August 28 (EDT) or August 29 (MDT)

The people your organization hired to work don't always come to work every day. Sometimes they are sick and sometimes they are even CONTAGIOUS! From high atop the payroll department, how do we know when employees are out on sick leave? Does the company require us to pay those employees who are not productively working? Does the state require it? Are they taking FMLA? Who knows? You should. And we'll show you how you can know.
