You need to always keep your talents focus on their job by providing competitive salary with effective payroll management. Design payroll management system can be more challenging than recruitment, and it is a great idea to ask for professional advice by partnering with Hongda. 

Why is Payroll Management More Challenging?

Payroll management refers to the process organization applies to determine the bonuses, welfare structures, and forms of compensation that all employees should receive for the services they provide. In this process, the enterprise makes decisions on the salary level, welfare system, allowance structure, and salary composition of special employee groups. At the same time, as a continuous organizational process, the company must continue to formulate salary plans and recruit plans. 

Payroll management is a difficult problem for almost any organization, mainly because the salary management system of an enterprise needs to maintain the balance between fairness, effectiveness, and legality. There are growing numbers of factors to consider when deciding payroll system. In addition to the basic economic affordability of the enterprise and government laws and regulations, it also involves the strategy of the enterprise in different periods, internal talent positioning, external talent market and field competition, and employer’s strategy.

What Should be Included in Payroll Management?

The typical payroll comes into four forms:

  • Basic salary: the basic cash compensation paid by the employer for the workload taken by the employee, which is the reflection of the value of skills or job difficulty. However, it may ignore the individual differences among employees. The basic salary can be adjusted based on the overall standard of living or inflation, the further enrichment of the employee’s experience, the improvement of employee’s performance, and the enhancement of skills;
  • Performance pays: the recognition of previous work behavior and achievements. As the addition to the basic salary, performance pays are often adjusted in response to the employee’s performance;
  • Incentive salary: incentive salary is also related to employee’s performance and it is also regarded as variable wages, including short-term and long-term incentive salary. Short-term incentive salary is usually applied under specific performance situations, while long-term incentive salary focuses on the long-term goals of the organization such as employee return, market share, and net asset income.
  • Other benefits and welfares: may include holidays and vacations, job-related supporting (medical allowance, staff canteen support, etc.), holiday rewards, and insurances. And it is becoming more popular and important in the payroll services.


Why Should You Outsource Payroll Management?

Who Should Consider Outsourcing Their Payroll Management?

There are many reasons that a company choose to outsource their payroll management and even the whole Human Resource department to third-party professional service providers. In general, the following types of companies will prefer to partner with payroll service agencies than building their own in-house team:

  • Start-up companies or small and medium-sized enterprises: for a company employing only dozens of people, it is becoming more difficult for them to hire their own human resource managers due to the cost limitation, especially when managing payroll is included. It can be a waste of time and put more labor burden on the operation of the company.
  • Branch companies in China of an overseas company: when designing payroll system, it is important to consider the local laws and regulations, which can be different from that in the country of the overseas headquarters. In this case, companies tend to work together with a local agency for a better understanding of local requirements.
  • Companies with high employee turnover: companies in the industry of retailers, insurance selling, and general labor could employee thousands of staffs who work in different types of contracts, such as unfixed term contracts, short-term contracts, long-term contracts, or just verbal agreements, which cannot be handled by only a few payroll specialists. Partnering with payroll management agencies will help cut the cost.
