Your Payroll Toolkit for a Global Recession

A survey of 1,000 business leaders found that 61% of leaders expected their organizations to lay off people in 2023, with the same amount expecting those layoffs to total 30% of their total workforce.

In this upcoming webinar we’ve gathered a team of HR and payroll experts to give you a strategic and tactical guide to support your employees and business during a global recession. 

You’ll hear what they did in the last recession and come away with practical tactics to deliver tax efficient compensation when budgets are tight, as well as how to support employees you’ve had to let go.

What you’ll learn

  • Hear from payroll experts about what strategies worked, and didn’t work, in past recessions.
  • Learn practical tactics to deliver tax-efficient compensation when budgets are tight. 
  • Learn how to support employees during layoffs, remain compliant and reduce risk across the globe.
