Highlights of the content provided in this issue of Global Payroll magazine.


Moving to a single global payroll solution has many benefits, but how do you communicate those to company executives who are focused on cost and the bottom line? One CEO says it’s as easy as 1, 2, 3. In “Three Steps to a Better Business Case for Global Payroll,” he describes how to evaluate the hidden costs of your current system, understand what you need, and explain the value of change.

In last month’s Global Payroll, we explored worker welfare in Brazil, the formal work relationship regulated by labor code compared with the informal work relationship not regulated by labor code, and provided an overview of Brazilian labor law, payroll, and social security. Now, in “Social Security Challenges Impact Brazilian Labor Law, Part II,” learn about Brazil’s eSocial platform and its complex payroll, labor, and accessory obligation scenario.

Head northwest from Brazil and you’ll come to the lush jungles, rugged mountains, and pristine beaches of Costa Rica. In this month’s Country Spotlight, “What You Need to Know About Payroll in Costa Rica,” learn about the ins and outs of payroll in the Central American country.

As Founder and Chief Guardian of SafeGuard World International, Bjorn Reynolds has plenty to share about emerging trends in global payroll, the biggest challenges facing payroll teams, and much more. Read our Executive Spotlight to glean his insights.
