Macclesfield based payroll specialist for the hospitality sector, Fourth, have been reaccredited for the fourth time by the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals’ (CIPP) Payroll Assurance Scheme.
The Payroll Assurance Scheme is the gold standard for both people and payroll processes within the industry, and shows the organisation’s processes are in line with compliance and best practice in the field, as set out by CIPP.
Assessors from CIPP commented:
“Fourth deliver an exceptional quality service with a proven accuracy rate of 99.6%. All previous recommendations have been adopted (though there have never been very many)
“Fourth is one of too many organisations that has been adversely affected by the pandemic and redundancies throughout the business have occurred in recent months. However, proven efficiencies, staff morale and their impressive continuous development culture has continued throughout. Fourth took the initiative to provide some great (and relevant) testimonials from colleagues and clients and these have been included in this report. All testimonials were given during 2020. No improvements to recommend”
Kathryn Wright, Head of Payroll Operations at Fourth said:
“We invest a huge amount of effort into managing our people and our processes to enable our payroll professionals to provide our customers with the highest level of value and service possible.
“The Fourth Payroll Operations are all qualified payrollers committed to delivering excellent customer service and accurate payrolls. Receiving the gold standard PAS has assured me and our customers that we are committed and dedicated to compliance and best practice in payroll. I am so proud to quote that our department has been CIPP measured and found to be fit for purpose. We will continue to provide and manage life-long learning and development.
“I would encourage any payroll department to sign up to the PAS process. It is an excellent way to ensure full compliance and to identify any risks. Our assessor was helpful and on hand throughout the whole process.”
