Partner perspective: Globalizing payroll, why now?

New research by The Hackett Group


Multinational organizations have learned, sometimes painfully, that no single platform can process payroll in all countries. Although solutions are maturing, a global, end-to-end payroll process still requires partnering with one or more vendors for execution. Nevertheless, a single, overall approach to governance and strategy oversight is required. 

Key takeaways: 

  • Global payroll solutions are starting to fulfill their earlier promise thanks to emerging technology like robotic process automation and advances in analytics. 
  • Maintaining clean, standardized data still presents challenges for most companies, despite investments in human capital management solutions. 
  • As the market has matured, global payroll vendors are becoming stronger partners, but need to be involved during the global payroll strategy creation phase for maximum impact.
