National Payroll Week 2021

Celebrate National Payroll Week

National Payroll Week, which took place from the 6 to 10 of September, was an opportunity to celebrate the amazing work payrollers have done to keep the UK paid during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We held a series of virtual activities during the week to pay tribute to the outstanding work you or your colleagues have done. Thanks to everyone who took part in the celebrations!

We catch up with Paul Schofield, SSC Director at Hays, on the changes he has implemented to the Hays Central Payroll function since his last podcast, which changes are here to stay and how to successfully onboard new members virtually to your payroll team.

Congratulations to our Payroll Professional of the Year

Following a week of nominations during National Payroll Week, we’re delighted to announce Lisa Wilson as our Payroll Professional of the Year! Paul Schofield, SSC Director at Hays, comments on Lisa’s nomination:

“This is always a hard competition to judge due to the high calibre of nominations, and this year is no exception. Lisa’s nomination stood out for us as it is always difficult to come in at the end of a project to help get it over the line, the team is new and the early challenges of remote working are present, but Lisa played a key part in the team that successfully completed the project. Her subsequent promotion is no doubt thoroughly deserved – well done Lisa.”

Thank you to everyone who nominated, and thanks to all those who joined in celebrating the successes of the payroll profession.
