Revealed: The Rewards winners 2018

The winners of The Rewards 2018, which took place at the Hilton London Bankside last night (November 7), have been revealed. 


With payroll still at the heart of the event, the 19 award categories reflected the widening remit of the profession and its close association with HR, reward, pensions and employee benefits.


The host for the evening, comedian Sean Collins, supplied more than enough entertainment for guests. Collins is known for his appearances on the likes of McIntyre’s Roadshow, Live at the Apollo and The Comedy Store Television Show on Paramount.


During the evening, guests raised more than £2,500 for the Bone Cancer Research Trust, a charity dedicated to fighting primary bone cancer. Money was raised through a charity raffle as well as a silent auction in partnership with Impulse Decisions.


The evening was supported by a range of sponsors including Cintra HR & Payroll, ePayslip Secure, FMP Global, Investors in People, The Payroll Centre, pensionsync, SD Worx, Smart Penion and Western Union.


Once again, the awards night followed the Payroll Autumn Update Conference held during the day at the same venue. The conference was sponsored by SD Worx, Modulr, ePayslip Secure, Ceridian, Cintra HR & Payroll, iiPay, and supported by The Payroll Centre.
