NEW DIAMOND AWARD

Increased recognition for companies

The brand new Quality Mark will be available this year to reward and recognise companies achieving 30% or more employee participation. It was announced to honour 30 years of Payroll Giving and the significant impact payroll givers have had on charities. We’re publicising the Diamond Award now to provide plenty of time to work towards achieving it, particularly if you currently hold a Gold or Platinum Quality Mark.

New to PGQM?

Apply next year! You automatically qualify to apply for a Quality Mark if you have a Payroll Giving scheme.

MAKE SOME NOISE – PGQM TOOLKIT

Support to increase your PGQM level next year

Whatever award level you currently hold, it’s already a great accomplishment. It demonstrates that you’re presenting a genuine benefit to your employees by providing tax effective giving to charity, and that you’re achieving a level of engagement through take up of the scheme.

We recommend setting new goals to achieve each year, to help support your CSR activities, and your engagement with staff. To help, we’ve created campaign materials to promote PGQM internally and share your new targets.
