This week marks the annual celebration of all things payroll: National Payroll Week, where the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) encourage the industry to shine a light on those #keepingtheUKpaid.
Payroll is the largest expenditure in most UK organisations and National Payroll Week, which this year is celebrating its 21st anniversary, aims to highlight the contribution that payroll professionals make to keep the wheels of industry turning. As well as making sure employees are paid correctly and on time, payroll is also responsible for contributing a staggering £301bn to the wider economy through the collection of income tax and National Insurance.
Cintra HR & Payroll, a proud stalwart of the payroll industry, provides HR & payroll software and outsourced payroll services to over 950 clients of all sizes and types, across a variety of UK public and private sector industries, with over 250,000 employees paid each month using a Cintra Payroll solution.
As brass is a traditional gift for a 21st anniversary Cintra has themed its activity accordingly and has focussed on collecting small change in strategically placed pockets in a bespoke ‘Cintra Fairground’, where employees can take a well-earned break and indulge in some light-hearted fun, exchanging their copper for a turn on the likes of the penny arcade, tin can alley, hook a duck or our very own creation, ‘brass in pocket’!
Cintra CEO, Carsten Staehr says: “I can’t believe National Payroll Week is celebrating its 21st anniversary! We’ve had a great week so far, collecting everyone’s change at the Cintra Fairground! As always, we like to support a worth cause as part of our National Payroll Week activity and this year Cintra will match the money raised at the fairground, which will go towards the fundraising pot of our three brave boxers; Reece ‘Ricco’ Calvert, Lysa ‘Pocket Rocket’ Morrison and Carrina ‘Carriba Carriba’ Adamson, who are taking part in an Ultra White Collar boxing match later this month, in aid of Cancer Research”.
