Well It’s Groundhog Day…Again
We all know the classic movie Groundhog Day. The hilarious Bill Murray plays an arrogant TV weatherman who is forced to relive February 2nd over and over again to gain karmic insight into his life. Along the way, Murray’s character indulges in reckless driving, learns French, and even steals Punxsutawney Phil.
While you might not have engaged to reckless endangerment, adapted a secondary language, nor kidnapped America’s most popular live mascot since 1887, the daunting duties that epitomize year-end have the tendency to send some of us into a mini life crisis.
Murray’s character is freed from his daily purgatory once he finally re-examines his life priorities. If you’re relating to this 1990s movie plot on an uncomfortable level when it comes to yearly obligations, you might want to start learning about what other strategies are available to you. After all, it’s never too late to make a change.
There Is No Way Year-End Is Ever Going To End
Year-end payroll and HR processing can typically feel like a never-ending to-do list of tasks with a bunch of compliance in between. Your list probably looks something like this:
- W-2 error checking, adjustments, and distribution
- Benefits renewal and open enrollment
- Payroll tax payments and changes
- Processing your final payroll of the year
- ACA 1094-C and 1095-C distribution and reporting
It’s enough to make anyone scared of their own shadow. However, with the right core HR and payroll provider, you can automate these tasks and more, allowing you to go from reactive to proactive. Just think of what you’ll be able to accomplish:
- Budget planning for the next year
- Strategic planning based on company goals
- Forecasting for future hiring needs
Before you know it, year-end processing may very well become your favorite time of year! Ok, ok, we took that too far, but it will at least be a lot easier.
