CONGRATULATIONS PGQM 2018 WINNERS

Our Payroll Giving clients knocked it out of the park this year

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 excited to reveal the winners of this year's Payroll Giving Quality Mark and want to congratulate all of our Give As You Earn clients for their commitment to Payroll Giving! The generosity of your employees means charities have benefited hugely from receiving sustainable income streams and we can't thank you enough.

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're awarded a Quality Mark, you'll 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.
