It is the responsibility of a payroll department to provide their company’s internal and/or external auditor with sufficient procedural documentation to prove that the team is working to the best interests of the employer and the employee. Staff salaries that are paid through the payroll are one of the highest costs of an organisation and so payroll has an obligation to audit to ensure that there is no fraudulent activity going on.
Quality standards, particularly those around payroll and HR, demonstrate to your own staff and others that you are a good employer. This helps you to recruit and retain employees. Quality standards, some to a greater degree than others, demonstrate your corporate social responsibility. They will help you to adhere to legislation and best practices, help you to reduce sickness levels and increase productivity. Quality standards indicate a minimum level at which your department is operating.
