The ceremony’s process and selection criteria for category winners


Shortlisted candidates will participate in a panel discussion with five judges. These judges have been carefully selected based on their experience with payroll practices across various industries and public services. As leaders in their fields, the panel of judges understand what it takes to achieve excellence and are seeking to recognise candidates and service providers that demonstrate exemplary leadership, teamwork, and cutting-edge innovative practices.


The importance of this event for global payroll operations

Accurate payroll is recognised as one of the fundamental processes in the operation of a successful organisation. However, the role payroll plays in the effective expansion of global companies is often overlooked. Organisations that are expanding globally, particularly into countries in Africa, must consider significant factors such as how to uphold compliance and data privacy, as well as ensuring alignment to best practices in sometimes unstable political or economic contexts.

  • Compliance: Countries with disparate geographies have vastly different labour laws, which impact the way statutory contributions, employer deductions and salaries are calculated. Organisations need to understand and align to these laws to remain compliant in their country of operation.
  • Data privacy and protection: Increasingly, payroll practitioners must ensure that the methods of capturing and storing employee personal data are aligned to country-specific Data Protection & Privacy laws. Should this not happen, organisations are liable to legal and financial penalties, and may damage their reputation as a service provider and employer of choice in the consumer and labour market respectively.

Given these considerations, organisations need to ensure they partner with payroll service providers who are local experts and aligned with global norms of quality and accuracy in their profession.

African payroll operations

Many African countries are undergoing exceptional growth, with booming industries and an upcoming young and skilled workforce. However, many African countries still have high barriers to entry, as well as challenging legal and tax systems. As such, it is imperative to partner with a service provider that is local to not one, but multi-countries in Africa, and can apply their ‘on-the-ground’ knowledge of best practice.

As the headline sponsor of the Global Payroll Awards 2022, Africa HR Solutions hopes to be a torchbearer for the global payroll industry, as well as the African market. Africa HR Solutions hopes to facilitate business investment opportunities, highlight social aid needs and encourage the development of African infrastructure and economies.
