CIPP bags best association award and makes top 100 best not-for-profits

29 February 2016

The prestigious awards follow a record year of success for the CIPP and pays homage to the dedication of its staff that have helped the organisation become the leading voice within the payroll and rewards industry.

The Overall Best UK Association award acknowledges the CIPP’s growing membership which now has over 11,500 members who process and implement payroll, pensions and rewards. In addition, the award also recognises the CIPP’s position as market leader of qualifications in its field and its continued hard work in supporting its current 944 students to achieve their qualifications goals.

The CIPP was also placed in The Sunday Times top 100 best not-for-profit organisations to work after demonstrating its commitment towards staff development. The award acknowledges excellence in workplace engagement and is judged purely on a staff survey – with only the highest level of overall employee engagement qualifying for the top 100.

Lindsay Melvin, CEO of the CIPP, said: “It’s great to be recognised for our hard work and dedication, but to be acknowledged twice in a week by two major awards is a massive achievement. 2015 was a huge year for us and these awards will spur us on to bigger and better things in 2016.”

In addition, the CIPP also picked up a mark of excellence for Best Development of an Existing Event for its 31st Payroll & Pensions Conference & Exhibition. And was shortlisted for Best Advancement of a Cause which recognises its work with credit unions.

Shirley Harris, Head of HR, added: “It gives me great joy and pride knowing that we work for an organisation which is so highly regarded. We want our employees to be happy and to not treat their job as just a 9 to 5 - and that’s why our relationship with our employees is so important. We treat everyone as an individual and help nurture and grow talent.”

The awards follow a record year of success for the CIPP and recognises the Institute for delivering best practice in all areas of running a successful, responsible and sustainable association – focused on serving members needs and delivering value. It also comes the organisation celebrates a year since its move into our new head office to help facilitate and support its rapid growth.

Lindsay Melvin, CEO of the CIPP, added: “I would like to dedicate this award to our employees. None of this would have been possible without the dedication and hard work of all of them, who always go above and beyond the call of duty for us and our customers.”
