It’s that time of year again, when thousands of payroll professionals head to the APA Congress 2016, an annual event put on by the American Payroll Association that brings together many of the industry leaders to talk shop and share best practices. This year’s convention is getting started right now. Congress 2016 is being held at Opryland in Nashville, Tennessee, between May 10 and 14. Attendees will get the opportunity to discover four and a half days of events jam-packed with more than 200 workshops. This is the world’s largest expo on payroll, accounts payable and finance.
It’s also got a unique Ceridian flavor. We’ll be there in full force for this year’s event, running Booth #210, and we can’t wait to see you at the Expo Grand Opening tonight (May 11th) at 3:15 pm! The following is a rundown of five Ceridian things you can’t miss at this year’s #paycon event:
Get “the state of payroll”
It’s good to start with a solid overall glimpse at where payroll is today. Learn about the key trends, technology innovations and challenges that lie ahead. Aaron Hurst, Ceridian’s vice president of global solutions, will be on hand to address the state of the industry Wednesday during this panel session hosted by the Global Payroll Management Institute Wednesday May 11, 2016 at 8:00 am – 9:30 am | Room: Canal A/B
Learn the basics of implementation
Next, get a feel for the payroll solution implementation process. Ceridian’s Mary Lyon will take the stage Wednesday morning to go over all the necessary tools and review the best practices you’ll need to get started. Get your hands on your very own “Implementation Survival Kit!” Wednesday May 11, 2016 at 8:00 am – 9:30 am | Room: Governor’s B
Build your global payroll strategy
Managing payroll on a global scale requires coordinating a lot of data, not to mention adhering to compliance best practices and understanding new technology. Ceridian’s Aaron Hurst will be at #Paycon to discuss all of these issues and more this morning. Wednesday May 11, 2016 at 9:50 am – 11:20 am | Room: Ryman Studio D&E
See a single cloud-based HCM solution in action!
Want to see a great payroll processing solution in action? If so, you’re in luck. On Thursday evening, you can join us for a live demo of Dayforce HCM (or swing by booth 210 to get one at any time). We’ll show you how you can benefit from joining payroll, HR, time and attendance, benefits, dashboards and talent management all in a single application.
Enjoy some booth activities
If you stop by Booth #210, you’ll also get a taste of all the bonus activities we’ve got to offer at #paycon this year. For starters, we’ll have two live screen printing stations that offer you the chance to make your own T-shirt (4 styles to choose from!) You’ll also get the chance to enter our raffle and win a $500 AMEX gift card, awarded to one randomly selected participant in our survey.
We look forward to seeing you at #paycon!
