Our Cyber Essentials accreditation demonstrates to the industry we're even less vulnerable to cyber threats. To become certified, we successfully proved the active application of strong levels of cyber protection. Not only is our IT infrastructure better defended from cyber attacks, our clients are too, being subject to the same safety measures.
We're a '1 Star' accredited company by Best Companies for 2020, the organisation behind 'The Sunday Times Best Companies To Work For' top 100 lists, according to the recent survey. Our Best Companies status indicates workplace engagement as an integral component of our success and growth.

We've been voted 'Employer of the Year' in the Multiple Sclerosis Society Awards 2016. The judging panel were looking for organisations that create an excellent working environment for staff with MS, and show consistent awareness and consideration of the fluctuating nature of the illness. But, rather than employers just offering flexible working hours and more regular breaks from work, the winner would demonstrate going above and beyond normal practice to support staff with MS.
