How does ACT work?

The custom-built online platform uses our unique Payroll Competency Model to target the assessment based on your team members’ roles, ensuring relevant assessments and results for payrollers of all experience levels.

Monitor your whole team

Managers can get a view of how the entire team is progressing with a dashboard that displays an overview of the team. This allows training plans for individuals to be managed more effectively.

All of the questions and answers are presented to each user in a different order so as to reduce the temptation for sharing answers around the team. However, you can be assured that at the end of each section all users will have sat the same assessment and covered the same competencies so that you can make a true comparison across the team.

View personal development

Individual users are monitored to continually assess their status and progress. As a user progresses through their training programme the portal provides managers and users an instant snapshot of how they are developing.



What ACT does for your team

Assessment is carried out using a series of multiple-choice quizzes on the ACT Assessment Platform, these quizzes cover 3 levels of complexity so that you can assess individuals on their experience and knowledge across the payroll spectrum. Questions and answers are ordered randomly so as to reduce the potential for knowledge sharing amongst the team.

Customise your training day based on the assessment results so that the training delivered directly addresses your team’s development areas.

Train your team with customised inhouse training days delivered by one of our payroll experts at your premises.


Additional Assessment Opportunities

With the success of the 3 main ACT competency assessments, the portfolio has also been extended to cover other areas of your department that may benefit from assessment support:

  • Recruitment: two new assessments have been developed to help you in the evaluation of potential candidates and their ability versus what they say they can do. Aimed at two levels, Payroll Administrator & Senior Payroll Administrator, our assessments are already informing clients with candidate selections.
  • Payroll Update: based on our flagship course, this assessment is focused on testing the understanding and retention of information following attendance at the course. By assessing their knowledge it helps your staff digest what they learnt and retain information, as well as highlighting areas that might need a refresher as the year progresses.
  • To find out more simply tell us how many people are in your payroll team?
