With an entire business dedicated to payroll, we always look forward to this annual celebration!
National Payroll Week (NPW) is an awareness campaign that recognizes industry professionals. It also stands to drive the attention of our country’s workforce to details about payroll and employee benefits, as well as the withholding system itself.
We are a country known internationally for being the home of “The American Dream.” From those businesses, built by generations of families and the jobs we work every day, comes each person’s contribution to the U.S. Treasury’s annual revenue; contributions collected via payroll systems.
As hard-working Americans we are not only supporting our families, but our payroll deductions are central to supporting the American way of life. It is the alliance that exists between our country’s workers, their employers, and everyone in-between that is the foundation of the monies which sustain programs like social security and Medicare.
Regarding 2015’s NPW running from September 7-11, National Payroll Week’s website provides this extraordinary statistic:
“National Payroll Week celebrates the hard work by America’s 156 million wage earners and the payroll professionals who pay them. Together, through the payroll withholding system, they contribute, collect, report and deposit approximately $2.08 trillion, or 68%, of the annual revenue of the U.S. Treasury.”
At rapid! PayCard® we are proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of this year’s NPW observance. We are also proud to be a part of the movement that contemporizes how the modern worker receives their wages – in a manner that is:
- Accessible for employees with and without traditional bank accounts so they may:
- Earn interest on savings account2
- Pay bills2
- Earn cash back rewards2
Regardless of that shameless rapid! PayCard plug! — we take the opportunity to facilitate payroll as seriously as you take getting your employees paid.
In addition to the awareness aspect of NPW comes the opportunity for workers living in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave to take the “Getting Paid In America” survey.
For all things NPW, take a look at their website to find all kinds of useful information, details about additional contests, and browse the shop with some neat promotional products.
And as for us here at rapid! PayCard, whether you’re shopping, saving, streamlining payroll processes, or sending funds – we invite you to learn more about all we have to offer and how we help people just like you easily and securely access their hard-earned money.
