Global Payroll Association hosts glittering Global Payroll Awards ceremony in Amsterdam

The black tie event at Amsterdam’s Westerkerk comprised more than 200 attendees from 18 countries around the world.

The Global Payroll Association held its glittering awards ceremony on Thursday 8 June 2017 at the beautiful Westerkerk, a Renaissance-era former church in central Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The black-tie event, which is the world’s only awards ceremony for global and in-country payroll professionals, was hosted by Melanie Pizzey, the GPA’s chief executive.

She said: “It was a well-deserved evening of fun, with a serious message. The night was all about celebrating the hard work of the global and in-country payroll industry and honouring the amazing achievements of both our winners and those who came highly recommended in their categories. I salute them all.”

Mel also thanked the ceremony’s key sponsor, Frontier Software, and partner global payroll services provider Immensum as well as award sponsors, Cintra; HRcomparison.com; SD Worx; The Hackett Group; HiFX; FrontierPay; Neeyamo; Srf Konsulterna and the CIPP.
