Optimizing Payroll in SAP: Chicago Seminar Preview

Chicago Skyline

In a September post, we talked about how to get the most out of attending a seminar. On November 17-19 in Chicago, SAPinsider will present Optimizing Payroll in SAP, which is the preeminent seminar for HR, payroll, and time specialists seeking to derive maximum value and efficiency from existing SAP ERP HCM payroll systems.

The speakers from the Philadelphia payroll seminar in October will be reprising their roles in Chicago. They all bring vast amounts of experience and knowledge and plan to share as much as possible in the two-and-a-half days. Each speaker brings something different to the seminar and knows the language of business, both functional and technical.

The speakers are Jennifer Adams from AspireHR, Yu Chen from Deloitte, and ICG’s own Mike Timm. You can learn more about all the speakers here.

The seminar will provide a deeper knowledge of the inner workings of payroll, ideas on how to make processes more efficient, and methods to employ more functionality. The sessions, focused exclusively on SAP payroll, will dive deep into business processes, configuration, and technical settings. Chicago attendees can get answers to their most difficult issues at the Rapid-fire Q&A Panel, which proved to be exciting and highly informational in Philadelphia. There are also plenty of networking opportunities to discuss how other SAP customers are running their payrolls and what they’ve found works well and what doesn’t.

Mike will be presenting five sessions during the conference and will also be on the Rapid-fire Q&A panel held at the end of day two.

Day 1: Mike’s presentation will cover the ten most critical factors that impact the accuracy and efficiency of SAP payroll.

Day 2: Mike will take on integrating payroll with accounting (FI/CO) and benefits providing configuration guidelines and best practices to reduce complexity. His second presentation of the day will be a comprehensive guide to US taxes and their impact on payroll operations.

Day 3: Mike will discuss managing payroll claims, garnishments, month-end accruals, and more lessons from the trenches. Mike’s second presentation of the day will be on field-tested strategies to avoid or overcome the most common and costly payroll and time-related challenges.

Mike is looking forward to sharing his knowledge and experiences in an environment where the entire focus is SAP payroll and those who care about payroll.
