Payroll Talking Points--Special Needs of Hotel Clients

Typically, payroll needs are similar across various industries, but sometimes exceptions exist where a bit more knowledge will help you get a leg up on the competition.

For example, if you ever talk to a hotel, they will have payroll needs that are for the most part common to other businesses. One unique thing that they may ask you about is multiple pay rates for a single employee in the same pay period. You can tell them with confidence that we can absolutely handle this and can advise on the FLSA standards (Fair Labor Standards Act) what is expected of them.

For example, if you add the regular rate of an employee who works 35 hours per week at $15 per hour as a maintenance worker cutting grass and fixing things at the hotel ($525), who then works 10 hours the same week at $8 per hour busing tables in the hotel restaurant ($80), you get a total of $605 earned that week. If you divide by the total number of hours worked that week (45 hours) you get an average of $13.44 per hour. The overtime premium owed the employee is an additional $6.72 ($13.44 divided by 2) for each hour over 40, regardless of which job the employee performs during the extra hours. Paypros makes it easy to keep track of these types of scenarios.

All it takes to refer payroll is to obtain a payroll invoice from the client, then send it to us and we’ll take it from there. When the client signs up with payroll, you get paid a residual commission for the life of the client.

Remember, PayPros can typically save them 20-25% over what they are currently paying and they will get a dedicated customer service rep that really knows them and the ins and outs of their business.

Ask them for a current invoice, send it to us, and when it closes you get residual commission for the life of the client.

Tips to help you self-audit your sales process



Do you act like you’re on a mission while at work? If so, making time outside the workplace can help you show your softer side. By participating in the company’s softball league or happy hour, you can convey a more affable vibe without sacrificing business results.


While no one likes showcasing their failures, owning up to your mistakes and offering a sincere apology if needed can go a long way to improving your likability. "Hiding failures or diverting blame will corrode your reputation," says Blank.


It sounds so simple, yet smiling is one of the most overlooked practices. Smiling can make a powerful statement and be a huge step toward improving your likability. People who smile are seen as more approachable. "Genuinely think happy thoughts and radiate a positive smile to the world; you will become someone to whom people gravitate," says Errico.


Sure, gossiping may help you fit in with a certain crowd at work, and many people make the mistake of thinking that they’re making friends when they gossip with them. But getting caught up in the company’s rumor mill will most likely have coworkers steering away from you, and, Blank says, will erode the trust that is essential to true likability. People tend to avoid sharing personal information with trash talkers, which means they may not trust you with work-related information that could help you grow in your career.
