Unlocking success: The importance of self-development in payroll

8th September 2023

To round off our series of articles to mark the 2023 National Payroll Week, we focus on the importance of self-development in payroll.

In the ever-evolving world of payroll management, staying up-to-date with the latest regulations, technologies, and best practices is crucial. One of the most effective ways to achieve this is through continuous self-development. At Rowleys, we have recently invested in a new training platform for our payroll team. Here, we share more about the platform and shed light on the importance of self-development in the payroll profession.

Embracing continuous learning

The payroll profession is not static. Tax rates change, regulations evolve, and technologies advance. Staying relevant and effective as a payroll professional requires ongoing learning and adaptation. Our new training platform, Act, from The Payroll Centre recognises this need and provides a structured environment for payroll professionals to enhance their knowledge and skills.

Tailored Learning Paths

Every payroll professional has unique needs and areas for improvement. The Act platform recognises this by offering tailored learning paths, allowing our team to further develop in the relevant areas.

Interactive learning experience

The Act platform offers an interactive and immersive experience. Through webinars, workshops, quizzes, and case studies, our team can actively participate in their own education. This hands-on approach not only deepens understanding but also makes learning enjoyable.

Demonstrating our commitment to excellence

Our commitment to developing our team and investing in industry-standard training platforms, like Act, highlights our dedication to excellence. At Rowleys, we are proactive about keeping our payroll processes efficient and compliant and investing in our team.


Radoslaw Grela, a payroll adviser in our payroll team, shares his thoughts on the new platform: “The ACT training platform was introduced to me to help me with my development. It is a great opportunity to realise my strengths and weaknesses. The platform includes manuals and quizzes which help to improve my payroll knowledge and build my confidence.”

The Rowleys payroll team are excited about using the Act platform to continue to develop and improve their payroll knowledge and skills.
