May The Fourth Be With The International Payroll Day Celebrations!

May 4, 2018 | Aoife Flynn 5 mins read

Today we are delighted to be celebrating not one, but two of our favourite celebrations of the year, Star Wars Day and International Payroll Day!

May the 4th has come around faster than an Ewok on a speeder bike!

Whilst Star Wars Day celebrates the Lucasfilm franchise in a galaxy far, far away, back on earth we are celebrating the gathering of the global and in-country payroll community to honor their achievements and growing strategic importance within businesses.

Throughout this historic occasion, the Global Payroll Association will be holding a series of ground-breaking webinars and panel discussions to mark the event.



  • 10am – The Swedish Brief – Zennie Sjolund discusses the latest payroll updates in Sweden.
  • 11am – The UK Brief – Kate Upcraft discusses the latest payroll updates in the UK.
  • 12pm – The APAC Brief – Ramco discuss the latest payroll updates in India and the APAC region.



Join the conversation with the GPA and friends during the 4th of May by using @GPA and @InternationalPayrollDay on Twitter and Instagram and share your snaps to be in with a chance to win an amazing prize.

Spend a minute taking a couple of snaps and the best view from the office window will gain its just reward. Don’t forget to download the International Payroll Day flag and include it in your photo.

Using Payslip, we can manage all our payrolls across nine in-country vendors on one platform. When the global Covid-19 pandemic arose, it was not an issue from a payroll perspective, and critically getting everyone paid. The Payslip platform enabled continuity for our international payroll service including the fast and seamless implementation of the Payslip Employment Self Service during this time.
