Leading legal expenses and emergency assistance provider ARAG has been presented with the 2017 Payroll Giving Platinum Award by the Charities Aid Foundation. The award recognises the achievements and commitment of ARAG and its employees who support charitable causes through payroll giving.

The award is presented to companies in which more than 20% of staff are enrolled in the scheme and recognises the organisation’s commitment to fostering a culture of philanthropy and committed giving in the workplace, by promoting Payroll Giving to the very highest standard. To support the scheme, ARAG matches the first month’s donation for each employee who registers and an extra 10% is added thereafter. As each donation is taken before tax, the benefit to charities is even greater.

Payroll giving

The Payroll Giving scheme is super simple and provides the best value for money for our staff who wish to donate regularly to a charity of their choice.” comments Ian Screen, Head of HR and Facilities “We are really proud of our staff who have signed up to the scheme. It’s important for us to help support their chosen charities and our charity team have done a fantastic job of encouraging donations.
