While some people may confuse Human Resources (HR) and payroll, the two teams handle different key aspects of your company. Here’s your chance to learn more about the difference between HR and payroll.

What Is Human Resources Responsible For?

The easiest way to remember what HR is responsible for is right in the name - the humans.

It’s their job to manage, maintain, and organize a company's human resources. They do everything from posting job openings to training to managing employee relations.

What Is Payroll Responsible For?

Where HR is only focused on the human element of a company, payroll is all about the money.

Payroll is responsible for calculating and depositing wages, reporting taxes, and verifying payment data. They are responsible for making sure your paycheck is accurate and on time every time.
