The evening of the recent Payroll & Reward Conference at The Chelsea Harbour Hotel, London, saw the unveiling of the inaugural Reward 300. A gala dinner marked the evolution of the 2017 Reward 100, a prestigious index which has been expanded to better reflect the range of leading lights across the profession.

The Reward 300 celebrates the individuals who have been recognised as the most influential leaders and dedicated professionals working across payroll, HR, employee benefits, workplace pensions and associated sectors.

The Reward 300 is formed from industry nominations and a selection of candidates that were put forward by our editorial team who take suggestions and keep note of high profile, influential individuals throughout the year. The final 300 were decided with consultation from an independent steering committee of industry experts.

Head of Legislation and Compliance, Ian Holloway and CEO Carsten Staehr were both recognised in the new index.

Commenting on the recognition, Ian said: “It’s humbling to be listed amongst such stalwarts of the reward industry. Those who know me know that payroll is my passion – I do what I do out of a genuine love for the industry I work in, so it’s great to know that others feel that what I do makes a difference.”

CEO Carsten Staehr commented: “I love the fact that the list has broadened to reflect the fact that the remit of the payroll profession has widened considerably in recent years. Cintra people are dedicated, passionate professionals and this individual recognition really echoes the commitment of everyone at Cintra to the payroll profession. Everything we do is based on teamwork and our focus is totally devoted to our wonderful clients: for this to be recognised by the industry is fantastic. I am privileged to be at the helm of such a great organisation, helping our clients to stay at the cutting edge of the ever changing payroll world.”
