National Payroll Week is an annual awareness campaign held during the week of Labor Day in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. It is hosted by the American Payroll Association (APA), the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP), and the Canadian Payroll Association (CPA).

The first National Payroll Week was held in 1999. The APA created the event to recognize the important role that payroll professionals play in the economy and to educate the public about the payroll process.

National Payroll Week is celebrated in a variety of ways. Employers may hold events to honour their payroll staff, or they may provide educational materials to their employees about payroll. Individuals may also take the opportunity to learn more about payroll by attending webinars or reading articles.

Here are some ideas for how to celebrate National Payroll Week:

  • Become an NPW supporter. The APA offers a variety of ways to support National Payroll Week, such as becoming a sponsor or donating to the NPW Scholarship Fund.

  • Decorate with NPW swag and hand out gifts. Show your support for National Payroll Week by decorating your office with NPW posters and handing out NPW t-shirts or pens to your employees.

  • Host a celebration to honour your payroll department and employees. Take some time to thank your payroll staff for their hard work and dedication by hosting a luncheon or potluck.

  • Educate your employees. Use National Payroll Week as an opportunity to educate your employees about the payroll process. You can do this by providing them with educational materials or hosting a lunch and learn.

  • Partner with other local companies. Work with other local businesses to host a community event that celebrates National Payroll Week.
