Patersons HR and Payroll Solutions Named National Business Awards Finalist Across Four Categories — Leading Global HR and Payroll Provider Earns Accolades for Business Innovation, Growth Strategy and Business of the Year; CEO Karen Paterson in Running for Entrepreneur of the Year
SALISBURY, U.K. (6 July 2009) — Patersons HR and Payroll Solutions, a leading global HR and payroll software and services business delivering expert solutions to clients in more than 160 countries, announced today that it has been selected as a National Business Awards regional finalist in four categories. Patersons was named a South of England Regional Programme Finalist for the Business Innovation of the Year, Growth Strategy of the Year and Grant Thornton Business of the Year awards. Karen Paterson, founder and chief executive, is a finalist for the Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
A National Business Award is the U.K.’s most sought after business honor, providing finalists and winners with real recognition of their achievements. To be selected as a finalist, Patersons underwent an intense scrutiny by a team of pre-eminent business professionals. All finalists will present to a panel of experts prior to the final judging.
“We are honored that the hard work and dedication of our global team have been recognized four times over by the National Business Awards,” said Karen Paterson, CEO of Patersons HR and Payroll Solutions. “Companies turn to us for reliable, affordable SaaS-based payroll solutions, especially in the current economy when reigning in costs is paramount. We are committed to providing them with the latest technological advances as well as highest levels of customer service.”
Paterson was acknowledged for designing the world’s first Internet-based global payroll management system. In doing so, she resolved what is potentially the largest problem faced by growing global organizations: the lack of a single contract, single platform payroll system that helps companies pay employees while managing the inherent risks involved in fielding local- and country- level tax and compliance regulations. Today, Patersons’ flagship software-as-a-service offering CloudPay, which is finalist for the Business Innovation of the Year Award, features employee and manager self service; a global multi-lingual, multi-currency HR suite; online international payroll processing; expatriate management; performance management; flexible benefits and benefits administration; and a full business intelligence and reporting suite.
Winners of the South of England Regional Awards will be announced during an awards dinner on Tuesday, 14 July at the London Hilton Park, London. The winners of each regional category will go forward as finalists in the National programme. For more information about the awards, visit http://www.nationalbusinessawards.co.uk/regionals/.
