One of the most important tasks in running an institution is payroll completion. Employees need to be able to rely on being paid on a consistent basis without delays. Payroll impact is from the morale of employees to the financial stability of the company. Unorganized payroll results in underperformance and casual behavior of employees towards their job.

An employee's total compensation is built into payroll. This includes his salary, benefits and bonuses like health insurance, life insurance and pension benefits etc. Employees typically undergo annual performance evaluations by their supervisors and are rewarded with an increase in salary or a bonus or both.
