IT infrastructure provider Softcat has been named ‘Best Workplace’ in the UK in the 500+ employee category by Great Place to Work. This is the fith year in a row that the company has been ranked a Best Workplace. The awards are based on
an employee survey and an audit of each organisation’s management and HR practices.
Softcat chief executive Martin Hellawell said: “We don’t have any intellectual property – we haven’t invented any products or make any – so the attitude of our employees and quality and enthusiasm of the customer service we offer is how we differentiate ourselves; it is the cornerstone of our success. Our formula is simple: we recruit the right staff in the fist place, continuously train and develop them and ensure they are engaged so they offer a fantastic service to customers.”
Softcat, which employs more than 900 people, was runner up in the Best Workplaces awards (large business category) in both 2014 and 2015.
