Online Training for Payroll Professionals

As industries have grown and matured in the last thirty years, the need for payroll professionals has increased as well. Large companies in the manufacturing, banking and trade industries have thousands of employees on their rosters. These companies need qualified and skilled payroll professionals to manage the salaries and benefits for their workers.

Payroll processing is an integral part of administration and HRM. Payroll professionals maintain and update employee records. They manage employee compensation, days off, exemptions, taxes, insurance, bonuses and deductions. The work involves data processing and management.

An average payroll professional earns around $52,000 to $65,000 annually, depending on experience, location and company that he/she works for. That is a decent income and given the high demand for payroll administrators, this is a stable and attractive career choice.
