National Payroll Week (NPW), September 2-6, celebrates America’s employees and the payroll professionals who pay them.
NPW coincides with the week of Labor Day, and highlights the achievements and symbiotic partnerships between America’s employees, payroll professionals, and various government programs and agencies. The APA, its local chapters, and others in the payroll industry use the week as a platform to spread awareness of the payroll withholding system, to host community service projects, and to educate others on how paychecks are calculated and how to get the most out of their pay.
The official slogan for NPW is “America Works Because We’re Working for America.®” The money that payroll professionals collect from employees’ paychecks through the payroll withholding system is vital to the funding of important government programs that keep America working smoothly such as Medicare, the building of federal highways, social security, the U.S. military, and much more.
You can even take the “What’s your Payroll Hero Secret Identity?” Quiz!
