I think we all know how challenging finding a great employee can be—it’s time-consuming and takes your focus off your business and goals. The difficulties continue after the search is over, too. Hiring that wonderful person kicks off another tedious process with its own challenges: payrolling.
The effort, costs, and associated risks involved in managing a contingent workforce are particularly frustrating. After all, your contract workers were hired specifically to boost productivity, not add to your responsibilities! But payroll is an unavoidable task, right?
Nope. We can do it for you.
ATR International can cover all your contingent workforce payroll needs. Our contractor payroll outsourcing services help you fill gaps in your organization without adding to your headcount. We add your contractor to our payroll and act as their employer of record—they become an ATR contractor on assignment at your business. All associated payroll priorities are covered for the duration of their assignment.
We’ve been experts in staffing for 35 years, so you can trust our payroll experience and focus on your business. Our services ensure you can grow your team with no extra effort on your part—how great is that? And the best part is we go above and beyond to eliminate headaches for your team.
Eliminating Hiring Headaches Beyond Payroll
Got payroll headaches? If you’re hiring, odds are you do. While “payroll” may sound like a simple undertaking, it involves many time-consuming tasks—and if you make a mistake, there can be some serious problems. Consider this list of payroll activities to start:
- Candidate background and drug screening
- Employee onboarding and offboarding
- I-9 compliance (including E-Verify)
- TN and other foreign worker visa administration
- Employee benefits
- Employee direct deposit
- Year-end W-2 forms
- Expense reimbursement
- Weekly payroll processing
- Daily administrative support
That’s quite a list! It certainly emphasizes how much is involved from a practical, task-oriented point of view.
From a liability perspective, self-managed contractor payroll can increase the risk of running afoul of co-employment rules. Ensuring your contingent workers are classified and managed correctly is make-or-break. Mistakes can cost big money and quickly reverse the benefits of hiring a contractor.
However, employment laws are complex and vary from state to state. It can be challenging for many HR departments to stay on top of it all, and it absolutely takes their focus off the needs of your permanent workforce.
Our comprehensive contractor care program mitigates these concerns. We’ve provided contractor management and payrolling services for diverse businesses—from midsize to Fortune 500 companies—and industries, including IT, financial services, pharma and biotech. We’re well-versed in rules, regulations, trends, and best practices and invest our time and resources in staying up to date so you don’t have to. Your exposure and risk are reduced, along with your average cost per employee.
Outsourcing done right is an integral part of any good business. Knowing what you can’t and shouldn’t spend your time and energy on can be the difference between success and failure. Contractor management is one of those areas. We’re here to help you focus on making your business a success. Leave the critical minutia of contractor management to us!
