The experts in cloud, business and digital transformation at risual have helped the 2005-founded company build tremendous success in recent years. But the Stafford-based company has no interest in putting its foot on the break, in keeping with its policy of continuous investment and organic growth.

For risual growth brings new challenges to overcome and new technologies to understand. Founded in 2005 by Alun Rogers and Richard Proud, risual drives value for clients through the latest Microsoft tech alongside championing the values of honesty, openness and trust. That it has never taken on work that does not benefit the client is a point of pride for risual, which has a mission to do more with technology to improve the world. Local investment in talent – pushed for by risual – has helped drive the managed services side of the business, in which the company boasts ten-year client relationships.

It continues to invest in the consulting arm of operations, underpinned by the belief that in a world of cloud technology, people need guidance from experts more than ever. Channelling empathy at the pandemic's outset, risual leaders recognised that employees would be impacted differently, depending on whether they were working alone at home and at risk of feeling disconnected, or distracted by busy families and possibly feeling overloaded.

Communications were transparent, regular and delivered in a variety of formats while two Covid-secure office buildings were opened for staff without a suitable working environment at home, or who were struggling with the pandemic

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

96% of staff agreed

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

Fortunately, risual did not have to make any Covid-related redundancies, and staff on furlough – whose pay was topped up to 100% – remained actively engaged with the business via team meetings, company update calls and daily catch-ups, along with investment in their personal development. All colleagues took part in virtual social events too, such as quizzes and competitions.

My Team

92% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

With the 2020 Olympics postponed the virtual risual Olympics was born, formed of cross-divisional teams that sparked communication. The company encouraged all employees to be mentally and physically active during the pandemic, hosting varied activities from running, walking and cycling to reading books, watching films and a guess the baby challenge.

Giving Something Back

93% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

The risual founders took the company's social responsibility a step further in 2020, forming a charitable foundation. Work towards its aim of giving back to people, communities and businesses has already begun with the launch a careers club, designed to help people get back into work by deploying risual employees' knowledge and experience.
