Do you make these common payroll mistakes

Home » News » Do you make these common payroll mistakes

Every once in a while, business owners need to assess their payroll process to make sure every employee gets their salaries seamlessly and timely. But, sometimes things don’t go as smoothly as expected. You might find one of your employees ringing your phone at night asking why the salary is delayed, and you wish you had the answer. Any mistakes in delivering the salaries can be a major dissatisfaction factor that drives employees to feel frustrated and unappreciated.

Our advice is to avoid the below payroll mistakes and check how you can get the salaries delivered fast and without a hassle.

Delays in Paying Salaries on Time

All employees wait for this precious moment when they receive their salaries and meet their financial responsibilities. But if this is not the case, then expect the following:

  • Discouragement to finish daily tasks

  • Low productivity rate

  • Poor interaction with managers and colleagues

  • Disloyalty to your company

  • High rate of absenteeism

  • Quitting the job and losing professional employees

Not Covering Employees who don’t have Bank Accounts

According to a new report conducted by the Jordan Strategy Forum (JSF), around 75% of Jordanians above the age of 15 and approximately 85% of women don’t have bank accounts. Hence, the companies that mainly depend on bank transfers fail to cover a huge percentage of employees. Companies need to have various payment methods, such as payment pickup services, to make it easy for all employees to receive their salaries.

Inaccurate Salary Payments

Have you ever miscalculated a salary payment? It might happen to the best business owners, but it has serious consequences. Sending correct salary payments is crucial for employee engagement and satisfaction. Such little mistakes can hugely affect the employees’ trust and might result in salary correction which takes more time to be adjusted.


Depending Solely on Checks & Cash

Now that new work models are introduced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, more workers prefer to work remotely or follow a more hybrid form. Thus, depending on handing checks and cash only might be a problem for employers and employees. It is time to invest in multiple payment options to cover all the employees’ needs.
