Martin Kornacki, Brand editor at Payroll World Awards tells a little more about the Payroll World Awards and how you can get involved.
I’m very pleased to announce that this year’s Payroll World Awards, sponsored by Intuit QuickBooks, look like they will be the biggest ever. More importantly, entries close this week! Now is the time to get your submission in. And this year it’s easier than ever. Once you have selected your category, and more on that later, the first step is to submit a short 200 words on why you feel your company, team or nominated individual should be shortlisted. That’s it, all you need to do is submit 200 words. Only if your entry has been shortlisted will you be asked to submit a longer entry, and fuller details. So what do you have to lose?
Whether you are an awards veteran or whether this will be the first time you participate in an industry awards scheme, put your initial short entry in now. As the leading independent award scheme for the payroll industry we have implemented this new system to ensure there are no barriers to entry. This is especially true for smaller companies and employers that may lack the resource to dedicate individuals specially to writing long awards entries, before knowing if they are even shortlisted. We, along with our sponsor partners Intuit QuickBooks, appreciate how busy you are. At the same time, we are both passionate about drawing out best practice and outstanding achievement in the payroll industry.
Writing an award submission is a great way to reflect on your own achievements, boost employee engagement and staff morale, and recognise those that have made a real difference in the world of payroll. This year there are also a number of exciting new categories including ‘Best Company to work for in Payroll’ and the ‘Auto-enrolment Engagement Award’ – see the full list here:
And of course all the most hotly contested categories remain from previous years, including for best payroll provider and best in-house payroll team. The awards night itself is the highlight of any payroll calendar, set to be held on November 12 at the Tower Hotel in Central London. Find the full list of categories, more on this year’s judges and tips on writing a great entry.

Good luck. Now get entering!
