The Walt Disney Company and Wales Millennium Centre achieve The CIPP's prestigious PQP accreditation

10 June 2014

The Walt Disney Company and Wales Millennium Centre have obtained the prestigious Payroll Quality Partnership (PQP) accreditation from the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP).

The Chartered Institute is also pleased to announce that Peverel Services Limited, Sherwood Forest Hospital and Shropshire County Council have all been re-accredited.

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 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 The Walt Disney Company and Wales Millennium Centre have 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.”

Belinda Rowlands ACIPP, Accounts and Payroll Manager at the Wales Millennium Centre comments: “Wales Millennium Centre, opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 2004, is Wales’ national centre for the performing arts. Crucial to the Centre’s ambition and leadership role is that we excel in all that we do, both on and off the stage. When we embarked on this journey towards the PQP accreditation our aim was to achieve best practice and to demonstrate the Centre’s commitment to the development and continual improvement of its payroll staff and its processes. We are delighted and proud to have achieved this accreditation in just over nine months, and especially in our 10th anniversary year.
