Learn ways leading employers are significantly reducing the time spent on payroll and the administration of employee benefit programs while reducing errors and enhancing compliance and effectiveness. Traditional payroll service providers are not prepared to handle the unique needs of contractors  and can struggle with common tasks such as submitting certified payroll reports and prevailing wage calculations.
