Intercity Technology operates through its “genuine passion” to offer innovative technologies to support public and private businesses in managed, cloud infrastructure, enterprise mobility, collaboration and security services. “Tech,” its says, “is in its DNA.”

Their aim is to make certain through an exceptional workforce that they deliver outstanding levels of service with tangible business benefits for their customers.

The Birmingham-based company wants to be known as the best technology partner to work for and with. Leadership teams see this as a key goal with every manager tasked with creating an action plan based on previous staff surveys to improve engagement scores.

Training, guidance and career development are seen as crucial to Intercity's success. Every manager, also now schooled in managing remote workers, creates a “plan on a page” for his team, which is linked back to company objectives. These detail team objectives for each quarter with performances managed through one-to-ones with team members.

Workplace connection to maintain mental health has not been given a back seat during the pandemic. Remote team building has taken place through interactive quiz nights, with attendance encouraged by managers sending out “goody boxes” containing drinks and sweets to participants as well as prizes. End of year socials included a murder mystery night, online escape room and a night at the races.

Quote from the top...
"The awarding of the 2 Star Accreditation is a testament and acknowledgement of the fantastic work and efforts the Intercity team has delivered over the past twelve months and the value we place on our colleagues. I’ve been incredibly impressed by how the whole business has come together to support colleagues as well as our customers during what has been an extremely challenging year for everyone. As part of our vision to be known as the best technology partner to work for and with, we not only have some fantastic talent right across the business but also have developed some exciting initiatives to support that talent. From our Management Academy and CPD workshops, to colleague recognition schemes and an adapted approach to our community outreach programmes, we have continued to provide development opportunities to our colleagues during this time. Through initiatives like these and clear company objectives through our integrated business plan, we have ensured that not only do our colleagues live and breathe our company vision but also have the tools available to them to support their own continued personal and professional development"

Andrew Jackson, CEO - Intercity Technology
