Three more organisations gain Payroll Quality Partnership accreditation

McKesson, Epson Telford and NHS Payroll Services Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust have all been awarded the Institute of Payroll Professionals’ (IPP) Payroll Quality Partnership (PQP) accreditation.

The objective of the PQP is to enable payroll professionals to provide their customers with the highest level of value and service possible through effective payroll learning and development.

There are currently 19 PQP-accredited organisations and a further 63 organisations engaged to the scheme.

Liz Lay, associate director of learning and development at the IPP, said: “The PQP accreditation process is part of the Institute’s ongoing goal to uphold the highest standards in the payroll industry.

“It is because of organisations such as McKesson, Epson Telford and NHS Payroll Services Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust committing to their payroll department’s professional development that this becomes possible.”

Frank Rutley, workforce solutions director at McKesson, said: “McKesson Shared Services is extremely delighted to have been awarded the IPP’s PQP accreditation. This prestigious accreditation demonstrates our commitment to delivering high quality HR and payroll services to the NHS.

“At McKesson Shared Services, we continue to work hard to develop services that greatly assist healthcare organisations in eliminating inefficiencies in workforce management and the PQP accreditation highlights our dedication to continually improving payroll functions for both staff and our clients.”

“We are delighted to have been recognised for the commitment we place in the learning and development of our staff. Obtaining the PQP award also demonstrates our ongoing dedication to delivering a professional and high quality service to all the employees in our organisation.”
