Can hourly employees be paid monthly?

Yes, hourly employees can be paid monthly, although it is a less common situation compared to other pay frequency options, which may be biweekly or semimonthly. In some regions, there may be regulations, specifically the maximum pay frequency for hourly employees.

Paying hourly employees monthly can somehow advantage the employers, like streamlining payroll and minimizing administrative costs.

How to convert hourly to yearly salary calculator?

To convert an hourly wage to its equivalent yearly salary, here are a few steps to help you calculate the yearly salary from an hourly wage:

  1. Identify the hourly wage
  2. Determine weekly work hours
  3. Calculate annual work weeks
  4. Using the conversion formula

  1. Identify the hourly wage: Identify the employee’s hourly wage.

Let's understand with an illustration the hourly wage of an employee is $30.

  1. Determine weekly work hours: Determine the hours the employee works per week. A full-time employee works around 40 hours per week.

Moving forward with the above illustration, let’s assume the employee works 40 hours per week.

  1. Calculate annual work weeks: Consider the number of weeks the employee works in a particular year, which is 52 weeks, by assuming no extended unpaid leaves.
  2. Using the conversion formula: Apply the formula to calculate the annual salary:
Annual income = Hourly wage x Weekly work hours x Annual work week

Solving the equation,

Annual income = $30/hour x 40 hours/week x 52 weeks/year

  1. Calculate the annual salary:

Annual income = $30 x 40 x 52

Annual income = $62,400

The equivalent annual salary for an employee with an hourly wage of $30 is $62,400 in a year.

Employee pulse surveys:

These are short surveys that can be sent frequently to check what your employees think about an issue quickly. The survey comprises fewer questions (not more than 10) to get the information quickly. These can be administered at regular intervals (monthly/weekly/quarterly).

One-on-one meetings:

Having periodic, hour-long meetings for an informal chat with every team member is an excellent way to get a true sense of what’s happening with them. Since it is a safe and private conversation, it helps you get better details about an issue.


eNPS (employee Net Promoter score) is one of the simplest yet effective ways to assess your employee's opinion of your company. It includes one intriguing question that gauges loyalty. An example of eNPS questions include: How likely are you to recommend our company to others? Employees respond to the eNPS survey on a scale of 1-10, where 10 denotes they are ‘highly likely’ to recommend the company and 1 signifies they are ‘highly unlikely’ to recommend it.

Based on the responses, employees can be placed in three different categories:

  • Promoters
    Employees who have responded positively or agreed.
  • Detractors
    Employees who have reacted negatively or disagreed.
  • Passives
    Employees who have stayed neutral with their responses.
