As the summer season approaches, businesses need to ensure that their summer payroll processes are well-prepared and efficient. From managing employee vacations to adjusting pay rates for seasonal workers, there are various factors to consider when it comes to payroll during this time of the year. Here are three essential tips to help you have your payroll system ready for the summer months.
1. Streamline Accrual Tracking with Our Timekeeping Services
Accurately managing time off accruals and balances is essential for businesses to ensure fair and transparent leave policies for summer payroll. Did you know that if you utilize our timekeeping services, we have time off accrual tracking? Allow your employees to view their balances, request time off, and balances calculated automatically.

2. Prepare Your Employees for PTO
Remind your employees of their balances and to request time off well in advance! This give you ample time to review their requests, assess staffing needs, and make necessary arrangements to cover their absence. Additionally, this proactive approach ensures that projects or tasks continue seamlessly and deadlines are met, even in the absence of a key team member.
3. Reach Out to Your Payroll Specialist in Advance
Let your payroll specialist know if you’ll be out of the office and when. Doing this in advance will help them coordinate summer payroll details early!
