Last Friday morning AEST at a virtual black-tie event streamed live from London, Aurion was recognised at the Global Payroll Awards 2020 for our expert solutions and service excellence, with a place on the shortlist for 2020 In-Country Payroll Provider of the Year.

Kathryn Wilson, Aurion’s Executive General Manager, praised Aurion’s achievements during a challenging year. “It’s been a tough 12 months for payroll in Australia. We already have the award for the most complex country in the world to pay staff, and our customer community has had to comply with major legislative changes for annualised salaries and government stimulus payments under the pandemic.”
“I think that what got us over the line for these awards isn’t just our strong tech solution,” said Kathryn, “but simply our team members’ expertise and ability to collaborate with our customers in a true partnership – we were there for each other when things got tough.”
