Smiths News PLC is awarded Silver

Friday 1st June 2012

Smiths News PLC has just been awarded the Silver Government Quality Mark Award for its Payroll Giving scheme.

The Silver Award is a symbol of excellence and is only awarded to businesses that offer and actively promote the Payroll Giving scheme to its employees. Rebecca Hedges, Communications Executive at Smiths News said:

“Qualifying for the Silver Award is a great achievement. It just shows how well our employees have responded to the scheme. The payroll giving scheme allows staff to nominate a charity that is important to them and give a regular monthly donation via their pay. We now have more than 5% of our employees giving through their pay.”

The Payroll Giving Quality Mark and Awards scheme is funded by HM Government and recognises and rewards businesses for making Payroll Giving available to staff. It’s an easy-to-use service which allows employees to give to the charities they care about.
