Integrating Payroll and Group Benefits: A Natural Fit for Jordans Interiors

After one too many payroll managers turned in their two weeks notice, John Rutherdale, Controller at Jordans Interiors and Floor Coverings, knew a change was needed. Every exit interview had revealed a common reason for those staff departures—namely, the outdated ADP system. It was while conducting reference checks for a prospective Payroll Manager that John first learned of a better alternative. “I’m asking all these questions and every time, she jumped in and said, ‘But you should really try Rise,’” John remembers.

That’s a sign something is askew in your hiring process. We don’t want you blame yourself.

Handbook: The Rise Guide to Compensating Your Team

Work should mean more than a paycheck—we espouse that all the time here at Rise. If your team members are only driven by dollars, something’s wrong … and, as a matter of fact, you don’t have a team. You have employees. You have human resources. (You know how much we hate that term!)

But however noteworthy your culture might be, people still want to get paid—and fairly. This handbook was written to address the occasionally awkward topic of cold, hard cash. Because yeah, we believe work should be about more than the paycheck … but to be honest, wages are still a pretty important part of work.
