Mission: To build enduring relationships with Clients by harnessing technology to drive successful business outcomes. Vision: To deliver Peace of Mind to the CIO's of mid market enterprises.
THE PERSONAL TOUCH is big at this IT firm. Every year, co-founder and chief executive Mark Fowle hosts a weekend away for the year’s outstanding achievers and their partners, known as the “ascent club”. They recently visited Lisbon.
Fowle and his equally sociable senior colleagues push a drinks trolley round the Staines headquarters at “beer o’clock” on Friday afternoons. The monthly company update, delivered by the boss from on top of a desk, is broadcast over a video link to the firm’s office in Caerphilly and to people working from home, a flexible option that 99% of employees have used.
Founded in 2000 and formerly known as Attenda, the business had its status as one of the UK’s leading managers of IT services and cloud providers recognised by Chicago-based IT firm Ensono, which bought it last year for an undisclosed sum, with Fowle joining its board.
The 273 staff feel their views are heard by senior managers, a 76% positive score, and consider their leader to be inspirational (81%).
Everybody can take two paid days to volunteer for good causes, and last year a group cycled from London to Paris to raise funds for the children’s hospice charities this organisation supports.
