It’s National Payroll Week: Here’s Everything You Need to Know

With National Payroll Week, the American Payroll Association (APA) annually celebrates the relationship between workers, businesses and payroll professionals. Paying workers is a big deal: Through the payroll withholding system, employees, employers and payroll services contribute, collect, report and deposit about $2.2 trillion, or 67 percent, of the annual revenue of the U.S. Treasury, according to the APA. To observe this special week, we’ve recently published some helpful articles on our complementary ADP blogs – Thrive, Spark and Boost. Whether you are a small business or a large global organization, these articles will help you navigate a variety of issues surrounding payroll processing and make an often challenging process easier on your end.

September 7-11 is National Payroll Week, a special occasion that every employed American should acknowledge – from teenagers starting their first job to adults who have worked decades and are still at it. The American Payroll Association annually designates National Payroll Week to coincide with the celebration of Labor Day. It is their way to honor payroll professionals who are committed to making sure that pay day arrives week after week, month after month, and helping ensure that payroll is accurate and in compliance with complex tax and withholding requirements, but often without much recognition. It is the commitment of these payroll professionals—whether they process payroll in-house or rely on a partner like ADP®—that deserves a sincere “thank you” from companies like ours and from each of the approximately 150 million total workers employed in the United States today. ADP® is again the Diamond Sponsor of National Payroll Week, and as President of our Small Business Services division, I’d like to make a special call out to the critical...
