Plan your payroll costs in a simple, automated, and participatory manner
Any HR professional is aware of the challenges related to payroll. In general, it involves many variables, which may increase according to the complexity of a company’s operation: different roles, unions, labor charges, benefits and other personnel costs. In other words, more employees mean more details, more variables, and more complexity.
As payroll data are confidential, they are restricted to HR professionals, who need to interact with different departments and check the headcount, dismissals, new hires, promotions, transfers, shifts, overtime – and only then they will perform all calculations.
Knowing that payroll is a complex theme, as it represents a major component of a company’s costs, CTI developed the perfect solution to help identify the resources spent with personnel and analyze future scenarios.
Understand the costs, provide resources, plan for the future
The solution developed by CTI solution proposes a new way of consider payroll. All calculation rules for the various amounts of salaries, charges and benefits are mapped and modeled in the system, taking into account the particularities of each business. The system user uploads the current payroll into the system including rates and special considerations. Then the system calculates all costs. After that, the tool hides the amounts so the manager from every cost center can change the variables according to his/her needs (hire, dismissal, transfer or promotion) and analyze recalculated amounts online, without relying on HR professionals.
This system allows a better planning of team changes and their impact on payroll costs.
Our solution allows hybrid information processing; for example, roles in more operational cost centers, with many employees, ensure fast scenario simulations. Or for employees from administrative and support cost centers, the system allows more accurate projections and more detailed analyses.
As the tool processes confidential data, the person in charge of a cost center can make his/her own payroll cost projections, including only headcount variation projections.
The solution facilitates the calculation related to payroll taxes, such as social security and length-of-service guarantee fund (taxes in Brazil).
The solution allows the user to define vacation and 13th salary provisions separated from regular monthly costs, with calculation of effects on cash.
As this is a very specific issue for each company, we designed the tool according to its benefit model (transportation allowance, meal tickets, scholarship, private pension, among others).
With this feature, the tool can calculate the financial impact of each event – new hires, additional cost due to collective bargaining, cost of promotions, changes in the benefit amounts according to the inflation – supporting analyses of the current payroll analysis and how it will look after these variations.
After HR enters information in the tool, it hides the amounts and allows managers to make changes and submit for the approval of their boss, who will review and approve the final amounts already calculated for all accounting variables related to the payroll.
