National Payroll Week

National Payroll Week

National Payroll Week is an annual charity event that spotlights the achievements of employees, payroll professionals and government agencies and programmes, who all have a hand in making payroll and workplace charitable giving work efficiently and effectively.

Established in the UK by the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals in 1998, National Payroll Week gives the payroll profession the recognition it deserves. From September 6th – 10th, National Payroll Week will work to raise the profile and awareness of payroll in the UK.

It’s a week where businesses and employers across all sectors and of every size have the chance to hear about different payroll systems and to get a sneak preview of new developments on the horizon.


Employee experience – a top priority

Employers are always looking for ways to improve the experience of their teams, and making sure their payroll is as efficient as it can be, so that everyone gets paid on time and the right amount. National Payroll Week also helps educate employers on how payroll can work beyond simply salary admin, in terms of employee incentives and charitable giving.


Using payroll for good

Payroll is not just about salaries for employees. It also contributes to the enormous amount of charitable giving that takes place through workplaces with Payroll Giving, harnessing people’s hard graft to make important change.

As our world lurches between pandemics, wars, environmental and economic crises, it’s hard enough to look after ourselves and our families, yet there are millions of amazing people who are always doing their best for those less fortunate.

Anyone who donates to charity deserves to be celebrated, and those who do so through Payroll Giving are harnessing the power of technology and innovation to ensure that their donations work even harder, and that charities receive more from each donation.

In 2021 National Payroll Week enjoyed unprecedented success. Over 5,500 information packs were downloaded and engagement rates skyrocketed. The uptake of Payroll Giving since the event has been significant. People want to give, and they want their giving to work as hard as they do. We live in an unpredictable world, but the human spirit is stronger than ever and kindness and social responsibility are at an all-time high.


National Payroll Week 22

This year’s event is set to be the biggest yet. The organisers aim to get payroll professionals across the UK involved and to celebrate their enormous success at keeping British workers paid.

Payroll professionals facilitate reward and remuneration for employees and make their lives, in the workplace and at home, seamless, through easy payment systems. Payroll may be the largest outgoing for most organisations and it takes highly trained, experienced and dedicated professionals to ensure it runs smoothly, so that everyone gets paid accurately and on time, and that charities get the maximum amount possible from employee donations.
