SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ninety-two percent of America's employees are confident their paycheck is accurate, according to the 2016 "Getting Paid In America" survey recently conducted by the American Payroll Association (APA). This is an increase of three percent from APA's 2015 survey findings.
"With so many people relying on their paychecks for financial stability, the need for accurate and timely payroll is critical," said Schott Scherr, founder, president and CEO of Ultimate Software. "The ability of companies to produce consistently accurate payrolls builds employee trust and is the cornerstone of a positive employee experience."
The APA survey asked "How certain are you that your payroll withholding and the net amount of your paycheck are correct each payday?" In response, 92 percent of survey participants said they are very certain or somewhat certain that their paycheck is accurate each payday.
The "Getting Paid In America" survey was held in conjunction with National Payroll Week (NPW), APA's annual public awareness campaign. Over 27,000 individuals responded to the survey, providing insight into how workers are paid in America. For complete results, visit www.nationalpayrollweek.com.
