Excel® for Payroll Professionals

Learn how to use Excel® to improve procedures and increase efficiency in payroll.Many payroll professionals are unaware of Excel®'s many features and functions they can implement to improve the accuracy and efficiency of their payroll production. During this comprehensive topic, Excel® expert David Ringstrom, CPA, shares applicable Excel® fundamentals that will enable payroll professionals to achieve those goals. Step-by-step, David demonstrates and explains: mathematics for employee timesheets, date and time formatting and stamping, conditional formatting to highlight HR requirements, password protection for sensitive payroll files and worksheets, salary information formatting, and using pivot tables for HR reporting and analysis tasks. David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint® slide with numbered steps, and second, in Excel® 2016. He draws your attention to any differences in Excel® 2013, 2010, or 2007 during the presentation as well as in his detailed handouts. David also provides an Excel® workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the topic.
