Cost per Payroll Payment

KPI Details

Cost per Payroll Payment measures how much, on average, the Payroll function spends to process a single payroll payment. A high unit cost for processing a single payroll payment may be related to several inefficiencies within the Payroll function, including highly manual payroll payment procedures (e.g., large amount of payroll payments performed by manually entering data into the company’s systems, etc.), low employee productivity, and/or poor training and employee oversight within the Payroll function. Each of these factors can increase employee dissatisfaction and turnover rates. Formal analysis of Payroll Department processes typically reveals opportunities for improvements to payroll payment data quality and submission standards, which can also greatly reduce the cost to process a single payroll payment.

KPI Definition

The total amount of expense incurred by the Payroll function divided by the number of payroll payments processed over the same period of time. Total Payroll function expense should include all labor, technology and other overhead costs related to running the Payroll function.
