The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) named Hays ‘In-house payroll team of the year 2015’ at its 12th Annual Payroll and Pensions Excellence Awards celebrated on Thursday 8 October at the Celtic Manor Resort in Wales.

Hays is the first recruiter to ever receive this award, which was awarded by a panel of independent judges in recognition of the Hays payroll team striving towards excellence through encouraging professional and personal development aligned with corporate goals, and demonstrating the impact payroll has on the overall business.

Paul Schofield, Head of Transactional Operations at Hays UK, commented on his team’s award win: “We are so pleased to win the CIPP in-house team of the year award. This recognises the dedication of our payroll team and the service we offer to both our temporary contractors and our permanent staff. I am delighted that, in a category with stiff competition, we won this award.”

This award follows the Payroll Assurance Scheme (PAS) accreditation awarded to Hays by the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP). The CIPP PAS accreditation helps to demonstrate the high standards that Hays adheres to with its payroll processes and procedures. It shows that they are fit for purpose, comply with current government legislation and that they can adapt to legislative changes.
