Leverage Value of Data Analytics in Upcoming APA Course

BY: APA Staff | 07/19/22

While analytics have always been required in payroll, they were usually confined to a handful of people performing an analysis of accounts or a manager looking for trends. Today, every payroll staff member is accountable for understanding and interpreting the data.

The analysis is not just limited to the data. It is also about taking a situation and understanding the cause and effect and effectively dealing with it. How do we communicate our message to other departments and understand the need for learned experts in this complex field of study?

APA's Foundations of Payroll Analytics course, offered as an interactive virtual classroom or in person at MEET Las Vegas, will equip your payroll staff to communicate their message to other departments and understand the need for learned experts in this complex field of study.

Learning Objectives include:

  • Recognizing how analytics can be used and the factors required to have data maturity 
  • Understanding the data that must be collected in order to develop metrics on the payroll operations 
  • Describing how to identify payroll fraud
  • Constructing a step-by-step benchmarking plan
  • Demonstrating the benefits of the use of payroll analytics by an organization
  • Understanding the data and analytics tools and services available in Excel and other analytical tools 

Two Foundations of Payroll Analytics courses will be held in person at MEET Las Vegas—one from August 1-3 and another from October 17-19. An interactive virtual class will take place September 26-28.
