SSCL has been recognised by the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals Annual Excellence Awards 2021 for the Best Coronavirus (Covid-19) Crisis Response.
Up against 16 other organisations, SSCL was named a winner with judges giving a glowing report on how SSCL managed numerous payrolls for our clients whilst supporting our people through the pandemic, referencing how quickly we moved colleagues to home working, whilst making sure we swiftly implemented daily risk logs with our clients keeping communications at the forefront of our response.
SSCL responded rapidly to the COVID crisis, prioritising the health and safety of colleagues, redeveloping our wellbeing strategy and quickly adapting our ways of working to ensure all employees could access support in a safe way.
The company’s resilience and determination to think differently enabled us to move almost 2,500 employees (approx 94%) to a home working model, including Contact Centre services within two weeks, a task which would have previously taken months or years to achieve but maintaining priority services ensuring our clients and their employees were paid on time.
Kenny Morris, Managing Director for SSCL Government said in response: “Receiving this award is a fantastic achievement and a credit to everyone involved in supporting our clients and our employees through the COVID pandemic.”
