Eira Hammond, chair of the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP), welcomed guests from the industry at a reception in the House of Commons and talked about the importance of payroll in the modern working environment.


She also highlighted the research project the institute is conducting called the Payroll Insight and Futures Survey. The survey runs until 22 September and can be found on the CIPP website,


Commenting on National Payroll Week, Jerome Smail, Reward Strategy editor, said: "Payroll professionals not only perform the crucial task of paying people the right amount at the right time, but they are also increasingly responsible for ensuring employers comply with legislation and regulations forming key government policy. Despite this, they seldom get the recognition that they deserve – mostly because they perform the task so effectively and efficiently that no one notices.


"National Payroll Week, therefore, is the perfect opportunity to put payroll in the spotlight and celebrate an industry and function that no one can live without."
