Payroll operations continue to evolve as new technologies and increased compliance requirements are adopted. With that, some questions were asked in the latest Bloomberg Tax & Accounting Payroll Benchmarks Survey, that shed light on these changes, such as: Where in the organization does payroll report?  What pay cycles are most popular? What is the adoption of payroll cards as a method of payment? How much do organizations outsource for payroll processes?
