Performance Study Measures Your Business Against Top Performers
Participate in the APA and The Hackett Group's 2013 Enterprise-wide Payroll Performance Study to find out how top-performing organizations are leveraging best practices to reduce costs while maintaining service quality levels.

*Gain insights into the characteristics of top-performing payroll organizations

Performance study participants will receive a custom presentation and report that compares individual results to top performers and other participants. They will also be invited to an exclusive webcast that will discuss payroll trends and insights on key metrics, and evaluate the impact of best practices used by top-performing payroll organizations.

Showcase Your Department's Value; Apply for Prism Awards
If your organization has improved business practices and overall processes over the last year, you could very well be the recipient of a 2013 APA Prism Award or AAPA Prism Award. Achieving such an award (as those pictured did in 2012) will help your department garner industry-wide recognition and prove your employees' worth to company officials.
Now is the time to prove your department's worth by sending in your nomination for the 2013 Prism Awards. Companies of all sizes are welcome to nominate their departments, and any department involved in payroll, accounts payable, finance, or accounting is eligible.
The 2013 Prism Awards will be presented to innovative payroll departments that exhibit best practices in four different categories:
*Overall Best Practices (Payroll)
*Overall Best Practices (Accounts Payable)
Download the APA Prism Awards nomination form to enter, or do the same for the AAPA Prism Award. All nominations are due by July 9, 2013. The APA award winners are chosen by the subcommittee chairs of APA's Strategic Payroll Leadership Task Force (SPLTF), while the AAPA Prism Award winner is selected by the Strategic Accounts Payable Leadership Task Force (SAPLTF).
The 2013 Prism Awards will be presented at The Fall Forum, scheduled for September 25-27 in Long Beach, Calif.. For additional information on the Prism Awards, contact Jim Medlock, CPP, Director of Education and Training for APA, at [email protected].
