Going Gold with Payroll Giving

  
  

Payroll Giving Gold Award 2014

Payroll Giving Gold Award 2014

Arriva  London has been awarded the Gold Payroll Giving Quality Mark this week as even more of the 5000 staff members signed up to Payroll Giving.

With such a diverse workforce it means that over 120 charities benefit, from well-known national or international ones to very local causes.

Payroll Giving has been re-launched in Arriva London this year and underpins its Year Of The Bus celebrations. The initiative encourages employees to give to their chosen charity direct from their payroll which is tax efficient for both employee and charity.

With many more staff signing up each week Arriva London is the largest operator in London to have achieved the gold quality mark.

Caroline Ward, People and Change Manager said: “We are all very proud to have achieved the gold standard, its testament to the hundreds of our staff who take the trouble to support causes close to their hearts. It highlights the importance Arriva London places on working closely with colleagues to support their activities in both the local and wider community.”

“A new online employee rewards portal has meant that it’s easier for staff to sign up and choose exactly where their money goes. So many people have a good cause to support, payroll giving makes it really simple and we pledge to continue to promote this hopefully achieving the platinum award in 2015.”

In addition to publicity and garage roadshows Arriva are holding quarterly draws where four members of staff using payroll giving are picked at random to earn an extra £250 for their chosen charity.

The year will end with an opportunity for a number of staff to promote their chosen charity on top of a bus in The Lord Mayor’s Show.
