Organisations which have put the concept of 'high performing payroll teams' into practice have all succeeded through creating dynamic, autonomous and highly approachable payroll teams which pass the test of time. High performing payroll teams do not happen by chance but are the result of good management, planned development and open communication.

This challenging one day training course is designed to ensure enhanced payroll team performance and efficiency. It will highlight the benefits of professionalism and working together to achieve organisational goals for your organisation.  

Building a high performance team is not an event it is an ongoing business process.


Learning Objectives

We all know that good teamwork can give you an unbeatable advantage but how do you turn talented individual players into a high-performing team? The main aim of this training programme is to improve the performance of your payroll team by gaining a greater understanding of team dynamics and what drives a winning performance within a payroll team.



By the end of the training course, participants will:


  • Be aware of the Principles of effective payroll team
  • Understand the characteristics of high performing payroll teams
  • Review the process in team formation as illustrated by Tuckman
  • Have a sense of common purpose about why the payroll team exists and the function it serves.

  • Demonstrate effective feedback skills – the BEST Feedback™
  • Be able to set the standard for team performance and define what value each person brings to the payroll team
  • Establish an environment in which all team members feel responsibility for the performance of the payroll team.
  • Identify how best to apply what you learn on this course in your own working environment

Course Method

The programme aims to maximise participation from the participants in discussions, group exercises and practical role-plays. The style is informal and the content informative. At each stage there is an emphasis on individual action; what are you going to do differently?
