Building a Payroll FutureThis “Building a Better Payroll Future” episode of The Payroll Podcast is with Senior Payroll Manager from Saffery Champness, Katie Sharpe.

Build a better, brighter payroll Future.  Katie is a Senior Payroll Manager who is not afraid to speak out about the injustices and pressures that payroll departments are under and she openly promotes positive change to make the world of payroll a better environment to work in so what better place to do that than on the Payroll Podcast!  Katie is not only passionate but also witty and this combination (I hope you will agree) has resulted in a brilliant and engaging episode that you won’t want to miss!

The hashtag #PayrollHumour has been a common theme found tagged in the majority of Katie’s posts on LinkedIn but behind her comedic skills, we discover exceptional payroll talents and passion that have propelled Katie to speak out and challenge the issues that payroll professionals face in order to build a better future for the industry.

To give you some context to Katie’s experience, she started in payroll with Northgate in 2008 and has since held payroll managerial positions with Top Right Group and Bauer Media and right now she is Senior Manager for Payroll Services with leading accountancy firm Saffery Champness.  Katie has a wealth of skills across payroll including Gender Pay Gap Reporting and Analysis, Payroll Legislation, Tax, Staff Management, and Process Improvement so without further ado, as I am super-excited to have you here so welcome Katie to the Payroll Podcast!
