Employee Self Service, Mobile

Enhancing Employee Experience: Leveraging Mobile Accessibility for Seamless Payroll

May 27, 2024

While the working world is torn between the permanence of remote work and return-to-office mandates, one thing was made clear: the employee experience matters in and out of the office. As organizations start to put manual payroll processing and legacy systems in the rearview mirror, mobile-friendly payroll solutions are hopping in the driver's seat to improve the employee experience. The digital age demands more efficient payroll systems and intuitive employee self-service options that make mobile accessibility crucial.

Here's why mobile payroll accessibility is important to the modern employee experience and how Payday's mobile-friendly solutions can help.

Why Mobile Accessibility Matters

Remote work has become a norm, allowing organizations to tap into global talent pools with fully remote, hybrid, or on-site roles. This evolution in workplace dynamics necessitates robust mobile solutions for operations beyond basic tasks like email and project management.

Mobile platforms enhance employee satisfaction and productivity by extending to payroll, onboarding, and other job management tasks. Self-service options empower employees to manage their payroll and tax details, such as updating forms due to relocation. This avoids the bottlenecks of traditional systems and boosts morale by giving employees control over crucial financial matters.

Easy-to-use mobile apps provide 24/7 access, enabling employees, especially those in different time zones or who travel frequently, to handle their information independently. This access is crucial even for on-site employees who need quick documentation for personal matters.

In an era dominated by digital transactions, mobile-friendly payroll solutions are vital. They not only increase productivity and autonomy but also significantly shape an employer’s brand and enhance job satisfaction.

Features of Payday’s Employee Self-Service

Payday's Solutions enable employees to do the following:

  • Update their personal information. An employee's personal information may change due to marriage, divorce, relocation, and other factors. Manual payroll processing can cause these changes to be inconsistent across information systems or not processed in a timely manner. The ability to update personal information in real-time simplifies the process and cuts down on unnecessary email chains and phone tag in the human resources department.

  • Request PTO. When employees have a bird's-eye view of how much PTO they've accrued, it can be a major motivator. Employee satisfaction increases since they can more easily plan the ensuing months around company needs, personal needs, and your organization's PTO policies. Requesting PTO through a self-service app decreases cluttered communications, and approvals and denials can be automated on management's end.

  • Adjust payroll elections. Every employee's priorities can change regarding benefits that best serve their needs. If they need to adjust their contributions to tax-advantaged plans, such as 401(k)s, a mobile-friendly self-service solution can make that effective for their next paycheck. Changing approved insurance providers, signing up for a new benefit program, and adjusting tax withholding are made simpler and with a stronger degree of control. When employees feel that they have more autonomy over their personal finances, this makes them happy to be your employee.

  • Access essential documents. Paystubs and employment verification letters are necessary for leases, mortgages, and other important situations. New employees may need to reference handbooks, procedures manuals, and other onboarding materials in addition to what they learned in any orientations or training. Employee self-service apps give employees access to this information 24/7, and the ability to easily verify their employment status to external users. Quick access to essential documents means they reduce this risk, and it keeps morale up.

With just a few taps, employees have all the power in their hands while the organization enjoys seamless payroll management.

Benefits of Mobile-Friendly Payroll Solutions

  • More accurate payroll records
  • Major time savings
  • Reduced administrative burden
  • Higher employee satisfaction
  • Greater employee autonomy
  • Increased employee retention

Payday's mobile-friendly solutions create happier employees who are more likely to stay rather than job-hop. The increased efficiency also vastly reduces the administrative burden on HR and payroll staff, as inquiries like paystub retrieval and tax form updates no longer require a manual request. Accuracy also improves due to fewer manual documents, causing fewer wires to cross and information to stay consistent across systems.
