On October 29, 2014 I was a humorous motivational speaker for the New Jersey State Payroll Conference at the Bally's Atlantic City, NJ Hotel.
Over 300 payroll professionals attended this conference. This excited group works in the payroll department of organizations of varying sizes. As such their job function changes based on the size of the organization.
Some payroll professionals do everything from managing salaries, finances, tax, tax reporting, employee records, wages, overtime and more.
Entry level jobs in payroll include payroll technician, practitioner, or payroll system analyst. People can become certified payroll professionals through the American Payroll Association ( of which this is the NJ chapter).
Most payroll professionals work in an office environment and are subject to the needs of those around them. many struggle to get caught up at work. Too much to do and not enough time to do it in is the norm.
I enjoyed being a motivational speaker for the NJ payroll conference. I delivered the motivational speech, The Nerve to Serve... Say hello to Humor and Goodbye to Burnout!
