Biggest HR Pain Points for Religious Organizations

The most significant pain points that HR departments at churches and religious organizations face are reliance on paper and worker classifications. Here’s how we’ve helped churches, ministries, and other religious organizations solve these challenges by providing the best payroll software for churches.

Reliance on Paper

Religious organizations are overly reliant on manual, paper-based processes. Moving to more paperless workflows not only saves HR administrators time but also helps control costs better. Partnering with a church payroll service company like APS allows you to automate your HR tasks and reduce mountains of paperwork.

Set the tone of your church’s culture and mission with our employee onboarding software. Paperless onboarding of new hires helps expedite the process and alleviates stress from employees and the HR department. With APS’ best church payroll software, you can cultivate the culture you desire by improving the overall employee experience.

It’s crucial for finance departments in churches to have access to data for quick insight into the health of the ministry’s finances. With our payroll and HR analytics dashboards, churches can manage budgets more accurately and make more informed decisions.

Discretion is an integral part of a church’s operations. APS provides the best church payroll services with a secure and private database. Protect your employees’ and pastors’ confidential information, like salary amounts, social security numbers, and bank account numbers. You can even assign designated users to process payroll for leadership staff while another HR user handles payroll for other employees.

Worker Classifications

Churches and religious organizations have complex worker classifications, including employees, contractors, volunteers, and pastors. You can configure our online payroll services for churches to track and manage all of your worker classifications and volunteers.

Track hours worked, emergency contacts, and certifications accurately to save time and mitigate risk. Volunteer and employee hours can then be tied to funds using our native Sage Intacct integration to ensure you meet budgetary requirements.

Using our HR services for churches also ensures you provide Form W-2s and 1099s to the appropriate workers. Run reports to review employee classifications for full-time, part-time, and volunteer staff to comply with FLSA overtime rules.
