  • OSVAtmosphere: Removing the Mystery from HR & Payroll Service Delivery

    Oct 07, 2020, by Pete Tiliakos

      The recent impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic exposed many HR and payroll service delivery models as being unequipped and unprepared to pivot to remote work, access the data needed to obtain government support, and move money to employees in a timely and compliant fashion.
