Kent County Council awarded PQP accreditation

24 June 2015

Kent County Council has obtained the prestigious Payroll Quality Partnership (PQP) accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP).

The PQP award recognises organisations that apply best practice in the development of their payroll professionals to enable them to provide customers with the highest level of service.

The Chartered Institute is also pleased to announce that The Payroll Services Company Ltd, DB Schenker Rail UK Ltd, Royal Mail, West Midlands Fire Service and RS Components Ltd have all been re-accredited.

The PQP accreditation scheme was launched in 2007 to provide a standard for performance management in payroll, encouraging organisations to maintain professional competence while enhancing and developing payroll skills and knowledge. Currently, there are more than 50 accredited organisations.

Mr Lindsay Melvin, Chief Executive of the CIPP, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Kent County Council has now joined the ranks of organisations to achieve this respected accreditation. I would also like to commend the companies that have achieved PQP re-accreditation – their ongoing dedication to their payroll staff’s professional development is a testament to the success that PQP is today.”
