Novatech is one of the UK’s leading providers of PC hardware, custom gaming systems and bespoke workstations. The specialist manufacturer works in a range of sectors, including retail, education, defence and public sector, designing, engineering, and building systems, servers, simulators, and a host of other hardware and software solutions.

It has a strong wellbeing ethos, with initiatives including weekly wellbeing 'info bites', care packages and having 10% of the workforce trained as Mental Health First Aiders. It offers employees the option to work remotely to support a positive work/life balance.

Understanding the importance of social interaction, Novatech has gaming platforms, Team hangout sessions and a social allowance, which has seen people take up gin tasting and escape rooms. Colleagues can also look forward to Novatech's annual advent lotto, with teams coming together to see what each prize is and who has won.

Novatech cares about giving back to the community. In 2021, the organisation partnered with charity Cancer Research UK, and only a month in, raised £800 through a raffle of prizes donated from its partners and suppliers. Novatech also supports Football for Cancer, a local charity which supports those who have been affected by cancer in its local community by raising money through sport events.

Our ambition is to keeping making Novatech an even better place to work. We have been extremely busy during the pandemic and despite the challenges it has brought, everyone has risen to the occasion. A testament to the passion and team spirit we have. It is vital in return for everyone’s brilliant efforts, we put them first in everything we do. My priority is to always make sure we always do the right thing by our people and our customers. Wellbeing, was already been a priority for us and this has been even more so during the pandemic. Our previous Best Companies survey results have given us a great amount of honest feedback where we have made positive changes based on this. I am so pleased to that our people feel they are being listened to and feeling more valued and engaged. Our people are at the heart of what makes Novatech great, we wouldn’t be where we are after 34 years if it wasn’t for our fantastic team.
