The Salaries Section is responsible for the payment of all Hospital staff through the operation of weekly, fortnightly and monthly payrolls. The size and complexity of the Hospital together with the wide variety of staff grades, payment entitlements and agreements creates significant complexity in the payroll function. The Section works closely with the HR Department of the Hospital and operating departments in ensuring that all employees are paid accurately and on time.
In addition to the payment of staff salaries, the Salaries Section facilitates a number of staff deduction schemes including Trade Union Subscriptions and Health Insurance Savings. A Beaumont Hospital Salaries Information Booklet is available to assist staff in understanding their salary payslips. In addition, The Salaries Section provides a counter service at designated times to deal with staff queries.
Pay accounts for in excess of 65% of the hospital's total spending and the accurate analysis and reporting of pay spending is critical to the Hospital's budgetary control and reporting functions.
