This is the inaugural year for the Global Payroll Awards, which are presented by the Global Payroll Association.  The awards are presented as follows:

“The only award ceremony in the world for professionals involved in global payroll, and it takes place for the first time in London in May 2016.

The event is not limited to payroll teams in the UK, it will celebrate technical excellence and professional development amongst companies and their payroll teams operating internationally.”


After a nomination for the award was received back in April, Velocity Global sent Mark Jackson to the awards night which was hosted in the historic Tower of London.

The winner was decided by a multitude of factors which were evaluated by an elected judging panel.  The panel was made up of experts in the field of international payroll, business, and expansion.

CEO of Velocity Global, Ben Wright said the following in response to the win:

Winning this award is an honor for Velocity Global, not only because it is a reflection of our hard work as a team, but also because we live by the motto ‘be of service…’  We prefer to do this because it’s far more gratifying to help everyone we come in contact with and now it also seems to have set us apart as the leader in the space.

We at Velocity Global look forward to a long future of service for our colleagues and clients.  To us this award does not mean we should slow down or relax, but instead validates that hard work does pay off.  To understand how we think global expansion should be done in the modern world, take a look at our eBook The Ultimate Guide to Global Expansion.
