Gateshead based Cintra HR & Payroll Services, award winning UK leader in flexible payroll and HR systems, is celebrating after their CEO, Carsten Staehr, picked up the accolade of ‘Best Boss’ at the Payroll World Awards, held in London last week.

Designed to recognise and celebrate excellence within the payroll industry, the Payroll World Awards champion the achievements of outstanding companies and individuals.

The team at Cintra entered their CEO for the Best Boss award without his knowledge and were delighted when they received the news that he was amongst 8 finalists in the category.  They were absolutely overjoyed when he was announced as the winner.

Carsten’s PA, Alex Hawes said: “Carsten is everything you could wish for in a boss: a native of Denmark, although now firmly an adopted Geordie, his nick name at Cintra is ‘The Great Dane’.  An unstoppable whirlwind of energy and positivity, he instils enthusiasm and makes you believe everything is possible.  He leads from the front and people respect his open and honest management style.”

The judges were touched by staff testimonials which demonstrated the overwhelming belief that Carsten has the best interests of his staff and his customers at the heart of everything he does.  He takes a genuine interest in staff, ensuring that they have all they need to be the best that they can be and in the history of his tenure as CEO, Carsten has never declined a training request.  Also, if personal issues arise, staff know that they can count on his support, compassion and flexibility. As well as supporting his Cintra family, Carsten’s charitable activity is legendary.  His passion for contributing to the wider community is infectious and staff take pleasure is supporting the charitable initiatives he leads, from running marathons and cycling the Coast to Coast to donating blood!  A true character and one of life’s good guys, Cintra staff are cock-a-hoop that Carsten has been recognised as the great boss he is!
