Gateshead based Cintra HR & Payroll Services; UK leader in flexible payroll and HR systems and services is celebrating after picking up one of the most sought- after accolades at the National Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) Annual Excellence Awards, held at the Celtic manor Resort in Wales last week.

The CIPP Awards are a true celebration of an amazing and sometimes underappreciated profession. With over 285 pieces of legislation impacting on the industry in the UK alone and over £250 billion collected through National Insurance and tax contributions, payroll and pensions play a significant role in the UK economy. The Awards herald the payroll and pension professionals who have made an outstanding contribution and demonstrated a commitment to excellence in their industry.

Payroll Service Provider of the Year is one of the most hotly contested categories and the standard of entries this year broke all records, with 14 companies making it onto the shortlist.  To be crowned the winner in such auspicious company is an amazing achievement and testament to the fact that Cintra’s motto of ‘making happy happen’ is a true reality for its wonderful clients.

Cintra has enjoyed double digit growth for the past twelve years but is not an organisation to rest on its laurels, having recently outlined an ambitious ten-year growth strategy which will see Cintra more than double its turnover. Outstanding customer service is at the heart of Cintra’s culture and key to Cintra’s long term growth plan.

Cintra CEO Carsten Staehr said: “This has been an absolutely amazing event. The camaraderie and support from fellow professionals, clients and competitors alike has been outstanding. Their unanimous joy at Cintra lifting the trophy for Best Payroll Service Provider is heart-warming. We strive to make happy happen for our clients and winning this award has certainly made happy happen for us at Cintra.”
