Make no mistake, 2021 was just as—if not more—stressful, confusing and resource-straining than 2020. A resurgent COVID pandemic; new rules and laws around employee health, safety, wages and more; a worsening labor shortage; growing diversity and inclusion campaigns; new technologies and markets; and of course a bevy of work that still needs to be done and jobs waiting to be won—these were among the industry’s chief 2021 focal points.
As we look to put 2021 behind us and focus on a new year (and era) ahead of us, there is one more vital hurdle to overcome—those often dreaded year-end processes for taxes, wages and other federally and locally required tasks. Not to worry though, Viewpoint has you covered with a host of resources to help you streamline these processes and make year-end a simpler, more efficient undertaking.
