In March 2020, a group of 14 UK payroll bureau managers came together with two things in common; a passion for their sector and a desire to change the support structure in which they operated.
After many phone calls, virtual meetings and endless hours of work, the Payroll Bureau Association was born. It was clear from their first meeting that lack of awareness across the payroll community of the challenges experienced by bureau professionals had led to an underrepresentation of its needs in regard to education, software and training.
The Payroll Bureau Association’s (PBA) wish is to change that bias and ensure all bureau staff across the UK have a place to unite, access to sector specific support and a forum to drive change through the industry. The PBA was developed by and for payroll bureau professionals. Its aim is:
- To hold round table events designed and developed for payroll bureaux professionals;
- To provide a support network to help our payroll colleagues to reach likeminded professionals across the industry;
- To place your voice together with others and bring change to our profession
If the Payroll Bureau Association sounds like something you’d like to be part of then get in contact.
