Best Place to Work in IT (deja-vu)
Hot off the press. We are thrilled to be announced as winners for best place to work in IT, at this year’s UK IT Industry Awards. This is the second time we have been awarded this prestigious accolade, and is our third national Best Place to Work award. These wins really cement our efforts within employee engagement and our internal culture initiatives, that we develop for our staff’s benefit.
We focus on our employees in a way that no other company can claim. Just like you’d expect, we invest in the fun stuff and create a great working environment and of course, no employee engagement would be complete without plenty of benefits and incentives, but what we focus on is opportunity. We create opportunities for our people to advance their career and quickly. In fact, some people don’t even make it past their first 6-month probationary period without experiencing a promotion to a new role, this has happened more than once or twice. It’s great for the employee, but it also sends a clear message around the building, work hard, do well and the rest will follow.
These are really not easy awards to even be shortlisted for, so to be named as the overall winner is simply amazing. The judges’ comments on the night were what made it all seem that more real. They said that they had never seen another company that does as much as we do to create such a special culture. This is such as amazing win and at such a crucial time for us, with so many more exciting developments to come, within our culture and with our brand. It feels like we’ve only scratched the surface and we are well on our way to create an unrivalled name for ourselves as a great employer that values and rewards their employees.
Just like any progressive and dynamic employer, we chose to celebrate the win the only way we know how ‘Mariachi’.
