Payroll Giving hits new heights

Payroll Giving hits new heights with 64% more Quality Marks being awarded this year!

Recent Payroll Giving Quality Marks figures show a significant increase in the number of employers effectively promoting Payroll Giving as well as a sharp upturn in the number of employers engaging in the scheme.

The Government backed annual Payroll Giving Quality Marks are giving to organisations which reach certain levels of employee engagement of Payroll Giving.

With around 1500 more Quality Marks being awarded this year (up from 2100 in 2018 to 3458 in 2019) Payroll Giving is reaching new heights every year. This is consistent with the findings from HMRC, showing an all time high in the number of employees signed up to Payroll Giving.

Of the individual levels, there’s good news across the board; 59% more employers achieved the newest Diamond Award level for 30% employee uptake compared to last year. These included Everton Football Club and our Founding Partners, The Entertainer and Beaverbrooks. 95% more achieved Platinum (20% employee uptake); and over 1000 additional Bronze awards (1% employee uptake) were awarded.
