It’s National Payroll Week!

Sep 06, 2018

The 3sHealth payroll team.

National Payroll Week is September 10-14, 2018. It’s a time to recognize the important work of payroll professionals from coast to coast, including those at 3sHealth.

Our team works very hard to ensure more than 47,000 health-care workers are paid right and on time. Last year, the system paid out more than $2.5 billion in compensation.

There’s a lot that goes into the work. For example, payroll professionals ensure all time is entered correctly each week. They also work hard to keep our payroll systems operating as they should, and to administer all pay in accordance with collective bargaining agreements.

Canada’s 1.5 million employers rely on payroll to annually administer:

  • $929 billion in wages and taxable benefits
  • $310 billion in statutory remittances
  • $180 billion in health and retirement benefits

They must do so all while complying with over 200 regulatory requirements.

Thank you to all payroll professionals in the health-care system for everything you do.
