Accor Services has launched a payroll-giving scheme and pledged to match its employees’ contributions as part of its commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR).
The perk enables employees to make donations to a charity of their choice tax-efficiently direct from salary. This means the charity receives the donation, as well as the tax that the employee would otherwise have paid on this amount.
Patrick Langlois, managing director at Accor Services, said: “It is an easy and convenient way for employees to donate to charity, and gives them confidence that their chosen charity deservedly receives the tax contribution as well.†
“We believe our CSR strategy should be owned and influenced by our employees and the payroll-giving scheme supports this by providing [staff] with choice.”
