Hi everyone, haven't been on in a while. Just a bit of feedback. Do you consider Payroll to be a HR function or a Finance function? It does fall under both, but for purposes of reporting to, for those of you with someone working internally on payroll (i.e. not using an outsourced provider) does that person report into finance or to HR? The reason I ask is because I am continuing to have problems with our payroll person (long story)! Her antics are extremely disengaging (e.g. docking pay for the odd time someone may leave 5 mins early, not noting the times they may have stayed behind) reporting senior managers for not using the clocking system - even though they are salaried and not paid by the hour! Generally back stabbing and being Big Brother! She has created a terrible atmosphere. Her direct manager is unable to handle or manage her, so for purposes of trying to change her ways I thought perhaps it could be an idea to have her dotted line reporting to me, at least when it comes to the payroll side. However don't wish to upset the apple cart with our financial director either, but if thought operationally a lot of Payroll personnel reported to HR would have a good case to alleviate him of the responsibility...In my last role our Payroll administrator reported to myself, dotted line to finance.
