ABOUT THE PAYROLL GIVING QUALITY MARK

We’re calculating your Quality Mark level 2018

The Payroll Giving Quality Mark is a government-backed accreditation, rewarding companies offering Payroll Giving with a Quality Mark which they can use to celebrate and promote their achievements. Organisations of all sizes, whose employees donate to charity through Payroll Giving are recognised with either a Standard, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum or Diamond level Quality Mark (see the criteria below).

We are proud to deliver the Payroll Giving Quality Mark to all of our CAF Give As You Earn clients and will be announcing the results early June, so keep watching this space. You’ll receive a certificate and a PGQM logo with your achieved level, and a whole load of gratitude from the many charities that have benefited from receiving sustainable income streams thanks to you!

AN ACHIEVEMENT TO SHOUT ABOUT

Are you ready to enter a whole new ball game?

  • It’s an official government-backed accreditation to showcase the goodwill of your company and can boost employee engagement.

  • Socially aware customers mean higher expectations from companies. Improve your brand perception with a PGQM and show that social responsibility matters.

  • 75% of millennials are willing to take a pay cut to work for a responsible company and 83% would be more loyal to a business that enables them to contribute towards solving social and environmental problems*. Payroll Giving is a great way to show you care.

Once you are awarded a Quality Mark, you will receive a certificate and a copy of the recognised logo which you can use on your website, letterheads and other corporate literature to promote your achievement to staff, clients, customers and other important stakeholders.
