Paxton design and manufacture access control, door entry and video management systems. Paxton offer free installer training and market leading customer support across their product range.

Paxton has continually developed and improved its offering over the past 30 years in an effort to listen and exceed the expectations of the customer base. Originally operating out of a premises in Lewes and shipping products from the local post office, the organisation has now grown to one with over 250 dedicated employees, operating from four different site locations.

They are firm believers in providing each and every employee with opportunities to grow and develop their skill sets.

The Paxton learning portal allows employees to access work and non work related courses to aid personal development. They have used actors as part of their leadership course during the last year, where actors use live forum theatre to act out scenes that can be redirected for better outcomes. They have also used this as part of their appraisal training to help make appraisals energising and motivating.
