Small businesses of 50 employees or less could save just under 10 per cent on their labour costs through electronic payroll and other management services rolled out by Ceridian Canada, the company said recently.
Initially focused on the Alberta market, Ceridian for Small Business starts at $44 a month and includes not only payroll but electronic services to run employee assistance programs, hire and retain staff.
In an interview with the Calgary Herald, Ceridian Canada president Dave MacKay (pictured) said SMBs have been stymied by a plethora of human capital management (HCM) software services from a confusing mix of providers. He promised to level the playing field and ease the transition for SMBs that want to move beyond issuing paper cheques and forms.
“(The services) will actually save them anywhere from nine per cent to 60 per cent depending on the range of services that they go for,” he said.
