Payroll Management for Small Businesses

It’s easy to take for granted, but there’s probably no function that your team counts on more fundamentally than payroll. It may seem like a simple job, but managing payroll and benefits administration can quickly become time-consuming and burdensome. It’s not that you have more important things to do with your time, but chances are good you have better things to do with your time, especially if you’re working on growing your company.

Outsourcing your payroll processing and benefits management to SmartBooks ensures that these critical functions happen smoothly and reliably. Your employees will get paid right and on time, open enrollment periods will be efficient, and employee changes to your team will be managed seamlessly — and you’ll get your time back to focus on areas where you add the most value to your company and team. It’s a win for your employees and a win for you!

Outsourced HR for Small Businesses

That organic, DIY approach to human resources that you likely started out with works for only so long. An inevitable byproduct of growth is that your human resources needs become significantly more complex as you expand your team, and with a more diverse and complex workforce, it’s not always clear what’s required of you as an employer or what the best path forward is. Making the wrong decision — even with the best of intentions — can expose your company to legal and regulatory penalties and undermine the happiness and productivity of your team.

SmartBooks’ HR Management service plans are a cost-effective way to give you both the expert guidance you need and easy access to professionally maintained HR resources. We can help you stay fully compliant with ever-changing laws and regulations and help you implement best practices across your organization, solving problems when they arise and preventing them in the first place.

HR Resources & Support You Can Trust

Whether you need access to professionally maintained HR resources, help developing HR policies and documents, or ongoing HR consulting, we can help you reduce your compliance risk and improve team happiness and efficiency. SmartBooks’ HR support service options include:

  • Easy-to-navigate state and federal employment law libraries
  • HR document guides and templates
  • Custom employee handbooks
  • Custom job descriptions and HR documents
  • Unlimited Q&A support with an HR expert
  • Proactive coaching by an HR expert
  • Harassment prevention training
  • Law alerts and updates to keep you informed

We hired the SmartBooks HR team with a simple, tactical ask - to manage our HR functions, paperwork, payroll, and the like. But after nearly five years with the team, they've gone far beyond that - truly a part of the team, deeply integrated into our wider strategy and one-off challenges.

We can show you the way...

The SmartBooks Payroll & HR Self-Diagnostic will give you quick insight into the strengths and weaknesses of your approach to managing HR and payroll. You’ll gain the confidence to continue on in the areas you’re on track and an agenda for what you need to work on to address the issues.
