It’s that time of year again where the media shifts its focus towards scrutinising companies reporting their gender pay gaps. With the reporting deadlines for both public sector and private sector companies looming, we are certainly being inundated with requests from our clients to assist them in collating and presenting their gender pay gap figures.
At Dataplan it’s all about the people, so we’re taking time to introduce some of our payroll heroes, starting with Chris Rutter.
ADP will be a recognisable name to anyone who has ever received a payslip. Having started as a small processing firm in the 1950’s, ADP is now a large global brand offering over 13 different products across HR and outsourced payroll. However, bigger doesn’t always necessarily mean better.
Traditionally, a successful payroll system was defined as a service that paid employees accurately and on time. Although still true today - the rapid evolution of technology within business has seen exponential growth, not only in what can be achieved through the use of technology, but also in the expectations of what businesses expect from a successful payroll system.
Recruitment agencies offer a personal and flexible service to their clients, so it’s important that they have a payroll solution to match. We act for many recruitment agencies to provide a tailored service to this complex sector.
It can be a daunting prospect to switch your payroll provider and you will want to consider when would be the best time to make the switch to ensure it is as successful as possible.

The hotel industry meets a lot of distinctive challenges when it comes to successful payroll management. For a household name like Hilton, these challenges are only magnified when the reputation of a household name is on the line.
