Alison Sellar – Leading from the top at Activpayroll

Welcome to the November issue of the Global Payroll Association magazine. On the first of this month, it’s International Stress Awareness Day. So in a bid to mark this noteworthy event in a world that is growing ever faster and more pressured for all of us, we’re featuring a must-read article on the impact of workplace stress on both individuals and their employers. It also provides a few handy hints and tips on what line managers can do to try and make a difference as it is they who are on the frontline after all.

A second article of note this month explores what that buzzword de jour, ‘innovation’, could mean in a payroll context. The focus here is inevitably on boosting internal efficiency and improving communications, but it’s clear that having the right structure, processes and culture in place can lead to step changes in how payroll functions perform. There’s even a case study to illustrate the point.

And last but by no means least is our latest Spotlight profile, where we talk to Alison Sellar, the dynamic chief executive of Scotland-based payroll services provider, activpayroll. She throws accepted wisdom on its head by attesting that sales teams can actively end up generating a poor customer experience because of a tendency to oversell and underdeliver.
