Payroll for Staffing Businesses


What is an “HRO” and how can it help my staffing company?

As an owner or manager of a staffing company, does it feel as though the government has made you an uncompensated, highly penalized tax collector? Yet none of your HR and payroll processing employer responsibilities have anything to do with your core business or the revenue-generating operations of your company.

HR Outsourcing Organizations (“HRO’s”) can provide cost-effective services that help staffing businesses better manage their employer responsibilities and risks. HRO’s are in the “business of employment” and provide real relief to staffing companies through services and resources that include payroll, employment tax administration, safety/risk management support, human resources support, labor law compliance, as well as employee benefit programs and reporting.

By “hiring” an HRO to assume these non-core, non-productive business functions, you are free to manage your company’s product or service development, production, marketing, sales, and service.

I was hesitant in switching my payroll provider halfway through the year, but the process was very smooth and stress-free. Class Codes took care of everything and made sure we had a seamless transition. I am very pleased and impressed with the speed and accuracy of their payroll service. They usually process our payroll and overnight all checks (Or check stubs) to my employees within 24 hours of receiving all the information.

We have been outsourcing our weekly payroll to Class Codes for several years now and could not be happier with their services. Our designated representative is very friendly and professional, always ready to answer any question or concern we may have. I particularly find very helpful the unlimited free payroll reports. I would recommend Class Codes as the first point of contact for any organization contemplating outsourcing their payroll.

We used to run our bi-weekly payroll in-house, this started to take up so much of our time. It was a constant headache to keep up with all the regulatory changes and ensuring that our employees got paid on time. Outsourcing our payroll to Class Codes was the best decision ever, their flat admin fee is an excellent value for the money. We should have done it sooner!

Running our weekly payroll for over 200 employees used to be a very tedious burden which took a lot of time and resources from our company. Outsourcing to Class Codes was the right decision, and we could not be happier with their professional and friendly services. Highly recommended!

I hired Class Codes because I wanted to retain control of my company. I never wanted to be held hostage by in-house payroll person(s) that could quit on a moment’s notice, or demand a raise knowing that only they knew the intricate details of their work. By outsourcing to a third party, I sleep well knowing that my payroll is done right at a rate that costs me significantly less than if I were to attempt to perform the same functions in-house.

Class Codes’ payroll operating system is the easiest payroll operating system around, requiring the least amount of time and energy to process payroll. We have reduced our weekly payroll processing from two days to two hours!

Process payroll your way!

We offer custom relationships and responsibilities with all our customers, enabling clients to get access to the functions they need and want while letting us handle the rest.

You pick the date that you want to process and print checks; you decide the best check-funding option that best suits your needs (Automatic draft, wire, etc.). Have us process payroll for you, or you can do it yourself! We can FedEx checks anywhere in the country, or, you can print right in your office.

We believe in radical service, and accommodating customers in the most outrageous opportunities we can find.

Don’t like computers? Don’t worry about it! Simply fax or email your payroll time and rates, and we’ll do the rest!

How Staffing Companies Can Reduce Payroll Costs

Company Payroll Solutions Staffing

“The average small business owner spends between 7-25% of his or her time handling employee-related paperwork, according to the U.S Small Business Administration.” -HR.com

One of the most costly employee administration functions that any employer must contend with is payroll administration. Whether your company runs payroll weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly, it ends up costing you hours of time effectively wasted on an entirely non-profit generating activity.
Approximately 33% of employers who run their own payrolls will, at some point, have a penalty or fine for late or inaccurate payroll related tax filings.

Adding to the payroll-related cost for many employers are fines and penalties due to incorrect calculations, late tax filings, and the inadvertent violation of state or federal regulations, statutes, or laws.

By failing to utilize current technology or updated payroll regulations many employers increase the time and expense associated with payroll administration. Without these resources or the assistance of an HRO’s expert staff, those organizations have placed themselves at a tremendous disadvantage and added nothing to their company’s bottom line.

Our HRO service will introduce current technology, up-to­-date payroll systems, as well as professional payroll associates and support. Since our HRO payroll service accepts payroll information via fax, the Internet, or phone, your company gains the full advantage of our flexibility and value-added services.

We follow through with added assistance for all clients. Helping you stay focused on your organization’s bottom line is our goal. With each payroll processed, our HRO service provides a variety of informative, easy-to-read and easy-to-understand payroll reports. Job costing, certified payrolls, direct deposits, and even custom payroll reports are not a challenge when utilizing our services.
