What is Back Office?

In a staffing context, the Back Office is part of the tech stack used to underpin the services of a Staffing Firm. It is used to create and distribute net pays and net bills (aka invoices) and to report and meet regulatory obligations which can range from payment of taxes to submission of gender balance statistics, etc. The Back Office is underpinned by the Staffing Firm’s financial systems. An HR module also captures key employee data which entails recording various entitlements such as leave types, classification conversion, visa, and specific employment conditions.
