    The Future of Payroll, Technology & Pay-on-Demand with David Ossip #51

    The Future of Payroll, Technology & Pay-on-Demand with David Ossip #51

    The Future of Payroll, Technology & Pay-on-Demand with David Ossip #51

    Nick Day is joined on The Payroll Podcast sofa by David Ossip, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ceridian HCM Holdings to discuss the future of payroll, technology and pay-on-demand services.



    Ceridian’s brand promise, which is “Makes Work Life Better”, is a promise to deliver innovative technology that helps companies better engage and manage their employees and we will be finding out a lot more about how David plans to achieve this during the course of this podcast.



    Now David is a transformational technology leader and serial entrepreneur with more than 30 years of experience building and leading successful Human Capital Management (or HCM) technology companies and he is also the driving force behind the innovation, vision and leadership at Ceridian, which has grown to become a global HCM company committed to delivering quantifiable value to its customers and great experiences for their employees.



    In fact, Dayforce, Ceridian’s Intelligent HCM platform, has grown at an annual compounded rate of more than 50% since 2012, and Ceridian now serves more than 4,600 customers around the globe. In 2018, Ceridian went public and its stock is now listed on both the New York Stock Exchange and the Toronto Stock Exchange.



    David, who holds an MBA from Harvard Business School has been the recipient of many awards for his leadership, including:



    * The Ernst and Young Award for Entrepreneur of the Year

    * The Ernst and Young National Special Citation for Technology Innovation

    * Canada’s Top 40 under 40

    * The Waterstone Human Capital’s Most Admired CEO for Transformational Leadership

    * Is one of Glassdoor’s Highest Rated CEOs

    * The Arthur Kroeger College Award for Management



    In this "The Future Of Payroll, Technology and Pay-on-Demand" episode with David Ossip on The Payroll Podcast, we also explore:



    * A lot has changed over the course of 2020, particularly in the workplace, so what are your thoughts on the seismic shift we’ve witnessed in the world of work, and where you see it going over the next few years?

    * While technology has been changing the way we work for some time, payroll seems to be one area that hasn’t seen the same scale of innovation, at least not here in the UK. With this in mind, what does the future of payroll look like from your perspective?

    * How does Dayforce Wallet work, and what are the benefits you see it driving for both the employee and the employer?

    * What was the catalyst behind Ceridian bringing this type of solution to market?

    * What has the response been from customers, and what are your expectations for growth down the road?

    * What industries, sectors, or types of employment do you think would benefit most from an on-demand pay solution?

    * What is it that differentiates Dayforce Wallet in the market?

    * What do you think the future of payroll looks like and do you think it is a future that payroll professionals should be excited, rather than anxious about embracing?

    Cloud Payroll Technology with Richard McLean #50

    Nick Day is joined on The Payroll Podcast sofa by Richard McLean, Co Founder of KeyPay!



    After working for over 20 years in IT, Rich and his three co-founders took the leap and created their own business KeyPay, a cloud-based payroll and workforce management tool. Since its launch in 2012, KeyPay is now trusted by over 158,000 businesses in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. Rich is passionate about keeping business processes simple and removing the unnecessary stressors in the payroll and workforce world.



    KeyPay is a cloud-based workforce management and payroll platform, new to the UK in 2018. KeyPay is the first true cloud-based platform to hit the UK bureau market, designed to eliminate the traditional payroll headaches of employee onboarding, data collection, HMRC and pension fund compliance.  In a single, integrated platform, KeyPay automates the flow of data from employees across rosters, timesheets, leave management, and reporting, through to the payroll bureau and back to the business, providing full client visibility of the pay run at all times.



    KeyPay launched in Australia in 2012 and dramatically changed the payroll landscape by offering a fully flexible, customisable solution catering to the diverse business needs in Australia.

    In this "Cloud Payroll Technology" episode of The Payroll Podcast, Richard is asked:



    * How does the payroll market in Australia differ from the UK, in terms of technology, perception, and/or complexities?

    * What does the future of payroll look like? 

    * What problematic, conventional payroll processes do you think have been accepted as ‘the norm’ by payroll professionals?

    * Why do you think accounting firms and payroll bureaus are slower to adopt cloud payroll technology?

    * What features should accountants look out for in their payroll technology to maximise their efficiencies

    * How else can technology add value?

    * What changes could payroll bureaus or accountants make to improve their processes?

    * How can payroll departments make payroll profitable?



    Links highlighted in this "Cloud Payroll Technology" episode are included below:



    * Director Pays powered by KeyPay: KeyPay recently launched a cloud-based payroll tool for accountants and payroll bureaux: Director Pays. Director Pays is designed specifically to remove all manual efforts involved with director payroll processing.

    * White paper: How accountants can use technology to make payroll profitable - Exploring automation in the UK payroll space and the opportunity it can bring for payroll, KeyPay interviewed 8 thought leaders about technology innovation and trends in the industry. Their responses, alongside research into the state of payroll in the UK, contributed toward KeyPay’s recent white paper.
