What others did last year

The CIPP spotlight awards

In keeping with the theme ‘putting payroll in the spotlight’ the CIPP held its own employee spotlight awards where staff got the chance to vote and choose the winners for sixteen categories. The awards were held in our Solihull office on Tuesday 5 September where Ken Pullar, CIPP’s chief executive officer, hosted and presented the awards to the winners. Our very own payroll team were presented with flowers and gifts to recognise their hard work and put them in the spotlight.

Portfolio Payroll

Portfolio Payroll is proud to have a long-standing relationship with the CIPP, and we were excited to once again be the main sponsors for this year’s National Payroll Week. With an emphasis on putting payroll in the spotlight, we’ve been celebrating and highlighting the important role that payroll plays in the success of any organisation through to celebrating the hard work and dedication of payroll professionals throughout the UK. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the launch evening at the House of Commons, a fantastic setting to put the #spotlightonpayroll! And we hope you all had the opportunity to enjoy celebrating NPW and had fun with the fantastic contributions you all made.

George Hay Chartered Accountants

George Hay accountants’ payroll team Elaine, Andrea, Diane, Frances and Sam organised some fun activities for our three offices. To kick things off they put together a quiz for colleagues made up of perplexing payroll-related questions covering everything from tax codes to P60s and pension contributions.
Staff made donations in exchange for cupcakes, scones and biscuits, and we also ran a ‘Where’s Workie?’ competition. We raised £92 which will goes to The Luton & Dunstable NICU Parents Accommodation Appeal charity.

Pay Dashboard

As official sponsors of National Payroll Week, PayDashboard were really excited to throw ourselves into the celebrations. We attended the CIPP’s launch event at the House of Commons, where Tim Phillips our new commercial director enjoyed meeting CIPP members and staff. Back in the office our marketing team were busy working on five employee guides which we shared throughout NPW and for which we have received positive feedback. For us, it was great to see so many people getting involved in #NPW17. We work with companies to deliver digital payslips to their employees, so we know exactly how important payroll is to a company and how stressful and frantic things can be. It was great to take time out to celebrate the fantastic role that payroll plays in businesses – because, let’s face it, no employee likes being paid late or incorrectly! Well done to everyone involved for making #NPW17 a success.
