Jeitosa Group International Kicks Off Cycle 2 for Global Benchmarking Study on Leading Practices for Global Payroll

Study Seeks to Uncover the Strategies that Bring Greater Efficiency and Innovation to the Global Payroll Function

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 13, 2014) - Jeitosa Group International, a leading global HR business consultancy and systems deployment and integration firm, has launched the latest cycle of its ground-breaking Global Benchmarking Study, a survey designed to explore leading practices in global payroll and to support organizations in benchmarking themselves against their peers. The survey is open from August 15 through September 30, 2014, giving payroll professionals the opportunity to contribute to the growing body of global payroll knowledge while learning how they can improve their own payroll function.

Today, more organizations are expanding their global footprints beyond their home borders to advance their business goals. But global operations are not without their share of challenges, particularly when it comes to compensating employees. Jeitosa's Global Benchmarking Study is an ongoing initiative intended to develop industry-standard benchmark data on the structure, quality and cost of delivering payroll services globally. Considered to be the gold-standard in global payroll research, the results from this study have been used by many Fortune 1000 organizations to build business cases for strategic enterprise solutions.

"One of the biggest challenges in benchmarking is making sure you fill out the survey with the right information," said Linda Obertin, senior vice president and global payroll leader of Corporate HR for Wells Fargo. "Jeitosa has made the data collection process easy and painless. The results from the study will help you gain executive approval for many of the initiatives needed to achieve world-class HR service delivery."

The study presents a detailed analysis of the global payroll landscape, describing the specific strategies utilized by top-performing global organizations to help them reconcile conflicting forces and achieve enhanced efficiency and innovation. There are two major aspects to this research: the first is to uncover top global payroll strategies with respect to different organizational models, performance tiers, industries, governance models, sourcing strategies, organization size and more. The second area concerns detailed payroll costs, such as internal staff and external service and software fees, as well as operational metrics, including quantity, quality and efficiencies, across 23 countries.

"As organizations continue to expand by leveraging their global workforce and operating in multiple countries, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the complexity of the unique payroll requirements in each country," said Karen Beaman, CEO and Head of Research for Jeitosa Group International. "Our Global Benchmarking Study aims to uncover the technologies and strategies that help organizations overcome these challenges and better align their technology infrastructure, business processes and people strategies so that they are well-positioned for ongoing success."
