Suits Me and Contis Group win Card and Payments award
Suits Me has won an award at the Card and Payments awards, in a joint submission with Contis Group.
Suits Me and Contis Group were presented with the Best Business Card programme award.
Suits Me, which is an alternative to traditional banking, says it was given the award for demonstrating a pioneering card programme focussed on delivering value to users, managing costs and driving savings.
The awards were held on the 4th February at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London and were hosted by writer and comedian Simon Evans.
Speaking at the ceremony after receiving the award, Phil McDonald, managing director of Suits Me, said, “It is great to see our efforts recognised through the Card and Payments Best Business Card Programme award.
“From our research, we discovered that 12% of temporary workers were sharing accounts, meaning that, based on ONS figures for UK temporary workers, this figure could be over 190,000 nationally.
“This award serves as testament to the hard work we are doing to change attitudes and perceptions in the temporary recruitment industry, bringing light to a frequently overlooked underworld of financial exclusion. I look forward to seeing the programme develop even further.”
Peter Cox, chairman and chief executive of Contis Group, commented, “I am delighted to receive this award on behalf of everyone who has worked so hard to get Suits Me Card to the market.
“Contis Group has always strived to bring innovative products to the market and it is great for our work to be recognised by our peers and the industry in general.”
