How to Improve Efficiency Between Your Stock Plan & HRIS/Payroll System

You may already have automation set up from your HR/payroll system to your equity vendor. However, you’re most likely still struggling to route data in the opposite direction – from your equity system to HR/payroll.

To avoid from moving or manipulating data manually, you have to think outside the box! It doesn’t have to be an expensive process or take months to complete.

Learn how Yelp and Amgen solved their payroll input challenges – and how you can take a page from their book to improve your processes.

In this webinar, we’ll review:

  • What are the benefits of a routeback? 
  • Common payroll system file challenges
  • Case studies with Yelp and Amgen
