Ceridian (NYSE: CDAY; TSX: CDAY), a global human capital management (HCM) technology company, today announced plans to offer enhanced HR capabilities within its Powerpay platform. This new functionality gives Canadian small businesses a simpler, more streamlined way to manage employees through an integrated HR and payroll application.

“Our small business customers tell us they are challenged to juggle daily operational priorities while maintaining an employee-centric workplace,” said Chris Armstrong, Chief Operating Officer, Ceridian. “Powerpay helps modernize HR processes and creates time-saving operational efficiencies, giving Canadian small business owners peace of mind and time back in their day to focus on business growth and employee development.”

Powerpay is one of Canada’s largest HR and payroll solutions for small businesses trusted to pay over one million employees. These new enhancements give customers the ability to:

  • Build an employee database in the cloud: A single system for tracking all employee information to reduce the risk of human error and storing confidential information on paper.
  • Secure company-sensitive documentation: A central repository for critical HR documents such as employee handbooks and employee documentation.
  • Modernize the onboarding process: Engage with new employees immediately using a customizable online welcome package that showcases company culture, eliminates paperwork and waste, and fast-tracks employee set-up.
  • Manage time off efficiently: Self-service capabilities enable employees to submit their own time off requests, from anywhere, with any device. This simple measure also ensures employers demonstrate compliance to track vacation and leave time.

Serving Canadian small and medium-sized business for more than two decades, Powerpay is trusted by household names including PUR Gum, 98 Food Co. and The Sydney Call Centre. To learn more about partnering with Ceridian, visit:
