Reward Strategy. Incoporating Payroll World.

Revealed: The Reward 300 2019 and Reward 300 Individual Awards winners

The Reward 300 2019 and Individual Awards winners have been revealed at the The 10th Anniversary Reward 300 Gala Dinner & Awards, sponsored by Cintra HR & Payroll Services, in London.


In 2009, the Payroll Top 50 was launched to recognise the most influential individuals in the profession. Over the years, the remit of payroll has widened considerably. The function no longer focusses on technical tasks alone, but also strategic ones.


Therefore, the move into this wider space - known to be reward - has meant the make up of the index has also changed, and gradually become The Reward 300.


Congratulations to all of the individuals included on The Reward 300 2019 index, which can be found here.


This year marked the 10th anniversary of the index, and to mark this special occasion we evolved the recognition element to award the leading light from each of the seven sections of the index. Below you will find the winners:


Payroll Leader, sponsored by Cintra HR & Payroll Services

Richie Jones, Head of Global Payroll at Deliveroo


Reward Industry Luminary

Rosemary Lemon, Group Head of Reward at Hays


Knowledge and Professional Services Leader

Nick Day, Managing Director at JGA Recruitment


Pensions Expert, sponsored by EQGlobal

Ros Altmann, Former Pensions Minister


HR Leader, sponsored by JGA Recruitment

Luke Wilkins, Head of HR at Gett


Employee Benefits Expert

Neil Robson, Benefits Contracts Manager at Northumbrian Water


Employment Law Leader

Tarun Tawakley, Head of Employment Law and Commercial Litigation at Deliveroo


At the event we raised more than £880, through a raffle, for our chosen charity, Welsh Women’s Aid.


The celebratory evening revealing the index and winners took place last night, June 5 at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel, London. It followed on from the first day of the Payroll & Reward Conference, headline sponsored by Western Union Business Solutions, at the same venue.
