SSCL Payroll Team Named as Best Service Provider

SSCL (Shared Services Connected Ltd) is celebrating another award win this week, picking up the Reward Strategy 2018 Best Service Provider - Team for the payroll services it provides to Government.

Stu Clennell, Head of Payroll Operations for SSCL Government, was also shortlisted for UK Best Leader, and Lee Willis, SSCL Government’s Operations Manager, was a finalist in the UK Best Payroll Manager category.

The SSCL Government Payroll delivery team is based in Newcastle, Newport, York and Pune in India. They manage the payroll for 23 Government agencies, ensuring over a quarter of a million public sector workers are paid each month.

The award recognises the team’s success in managing such a large payroll operation and increasing payroll accuracy whilst also transforming multiple payroll platforms onto a new payroll system for our clients. In addition, the team was also recognised for making significant efficiency improvements, including putting offshoring, robotics and automation at the heart of what we do.

David Parsons, Director of HR & Payroll Services for SSCL Government, said: “This is well-deserved recognition for an outstanding team that have delivered transformation to over 50% of the civil service in an unprecedented timescale. They are really living up to the ambition, commitment, drive and passion that SSCL represents, and I am incredibly proud of what they have achieved.”

SSCL Government Managing Director, Jeannette Smith, said: “This is fantastic for the Payroll team, and for SSCL! This team delivers a great service to all of our Government clients, and the award recognises their dedication to payroll.

“We constantly strive for excellence, so being recognised in these awards really reinforces our values and underlines the hard work of our colleagues.”

This award is just one accolade in a winning streak for SSCL this year. Last month, SSCL were winners of the best HR and Learning & Development Supplier 2018 in the prestigious CIPD People Management Annual Awards. This recognised SSCL’s outstanding contribution to recruitment, vetting and project teamwork to support the resourcing challenges of the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). The excellent results saw SSCL’s innovative technology solutions achieve targets to recruit 2,500 new prison officers nine months ahead of schedule!

SSCL is also a finalist in the forthcoming Personnel Today, Ideas UK, Engage, and CIPD Wales Awards.
