IT solutions re-seller Phoenix Software has been a key provider to UK public sector organisations since 1990, specialising in end-to-end IT solutions and service. Staff are the cornerstone of Phoenix, providing clients with their expertise in software licensing and transformational infrastructure solutions coupled with insight and innovation. Based in spacious offices in a rural spot outside York, Phoenix fosters an open, collaborative and team-orientated culture across the business – and also with its partners, which include Microsoft.

Feeling able to challenge one another is key to delivering the best outcomes, believes Phoenix, and staff are comfortable to participate and achieve their potential. Diversity and inclusivity are ingrained and as a Disability Confident Committed employer Phoenix is allied to a scheme aimed at recruiting and retaining disabled people and those with health conditions.

On site the company's Centre of Excellence, where solutions are showcased, is fully accessible to both staff and customers. When the pandemic hit staff could return to the office – in a controlled way – to collect chairs, monitors and laptops and spare desks were given to anyone who needed one.

Employee engagement has remained high in spite of the shift to remote working thanks to a host of pandemic-friendly practices such as ‘bear hug' treats packages sent to all staff as part of mental health awareness day. A 2021 ‘kick-off' party began the new working year, where everyone dressed in their finery to celebrate the previous year's success.

Featured Workplace Factors

Leadership

95% of staff agreed

I have confidence in the leadership skills of the senior management team

Managing director Sam Mudd led from the front as soon as the government advised people to work from home, sending regular videos recorded on her phone to keep people up to speed on issues such as getting hold of home office equipment. She also sent business updates and recommended Ted talks to keep people motivated.

My Team

93% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

A Friday quiz at 4.30pm has kept colleagues interacting over the past year, the £50 prize up for grabs donated to the winner's chosen charity. Staff have also united for virtual fitness classes, bingo sessions and ‘tea and toast' chats, while funny hats have lightened the mood of some team meetings.

Giving Something Back

96% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

Recognising that not-for-profit organisations were being hit hard by lockdown, due to the lack of fundraising opportunities, Phoenix extended its Azure Essentials Managed Service to these clients for free to help keep their IT systems running. All employees have a day per year to volunteer.
