Prism Awards Give
Recognition, Credibility

If your organization has improved business practices and overall processes over the last year, you could very well be the recipient of a 2016 Payroll Prism Award, AP Prism Award, or Shared Services Award. Obtaining such an award not only helps your department garner industry-wide recognition, but it proves your employees' worth to company officials, too.

Now is the time to send in your nomination for the 2016 Prism Awards for best practices. Companies of all sizes are welcome to nominate their departments, and any department involved in payroll, finance, or accounting is eligible.

The 2016 Prism Awards will be presented to innovative payroll departments that exhibit best practices in four distinct categories:

  1. Technology
  2. Management
  3. Processes
  4. Overall Best Practices
Download the Payroll Prism Awards nomination form to enter, or do the same for the AP Prism Award, and the Shared Services Award. All nominations are due July 8.

The Chairs of the APA's Strategic Payroll Leadership Task Force (SPLTF) choose the 2016 Payroll Prism Award winners. The AP Prism Award winner and the Shared Services Award winner are chosen by the Chairs of the APA's Strategic Accounts Payable Leadership Task Force (SAPLTF) and the Shared Services Task Force (SSTF), respectively.

All awards will be presented at APA's Fall Forum, scheduled for September 21-23 in Las Vegas. Contact Dan Dycus, CPP, APA's Senior Director of Education Services, for additional information on the Prism Awards.
