Teva UK Receives Silver Award from the British Government

 

Teva UK Limited has been awarded a Silver Quality Mark by the British Government for its charity donations.
The Quality Mark has been awarded in recognition of the uptake of a Payroll Giving scheme among the company’s employees. The contributions mean employees are raising over £8,000 each year for a variety of charities.

Lynda Wilebore, Teva UK’s HR Director, said: “We’re really pleased to have been recognized by the Government with this award. Fostering a culture of philanthropy is important to us as an organization, and it’s great to see that so many employees are getting involved and making a difference to a wide range of good causes.”

The Silver Award is a symbol of excellence and is awarded to employers that have succeeded in generating substantial income sources for UK charities through Payroll Giving.

Teva UK, which has sites in Castleford (West Yorkshire), Harlow (Essex) and Eastbourne (East Sussex), launched Payroll Giving in 2010. It is a flexible scheme which gives employees the opportunity to contribute part of their salary tax-free to their chosen charity/charities. The charities not only receive the amount donated, but also the tax that would have been paid on the sum.
