Press Release: SolutionsPT recognised for ‘People First’ approach

We've once again received the coveted 3-star Best Companies award, reflecting our dedication to our employees.

As enablers of digital transformation and the exclusive vendor of AVEVA products in the UK and Ireland, SolutionsPT has once again been awarded the maximum 3-star accreditation rating from Best Companies. Representing a ‘world class’ level of engagement and support for all employees, the award reflects our commitment to a people first approach.

Coming hot on the heels of last years Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to Work For award, which we won for a 10th year in a row, we've implemented several initiatives to promote talent in industry. The most recent innovation concerns the Apprentice Academy, which now works close with Universities and education providers to directly address the growing skills gap in the market by creating the next generation of digital transformation ambassadors.

Celebrating our award last year, just before social distancing became a thing:

Sue Roche, General Manager, said: “It’s fantastic to be recognised with another prestigious business accreditation. We have always said to our customers that it is people that transform businesses not just technology, and this philosophy runs through everything we do. In an era of change, when digital transformation is impacting the nature of work and the skills required to succeed, we believe that it is only by investing in staff that companies can gain the full benefit of technology.

It’s gratifying to know that our approach is appreciated by employees and when your employees are happy, your customers are usually even happier! Moreover, our approach underpins the continuity that characterises our lasting relationships with our customers, supported by long-serving, highly valued staff.”   

Andy Graham, Solutions Manager, adds “I am a walking, talking example of SolutionsPT’s commitment to its staff. Having been with the company now for more than 15 years, I was initially SolutionsPT’s first university apprentice. Since beginning my journey in the support team, SolutionsPT has given me the opportunity to experience several different roles in the company, all the way to my current role and including representing the company at GAMBICA council meetings.”

Best Companies has more than 20 years’ experience helping organisations measure and improve employee engagement using a robust methodology, with their accreditation standards certifying excellence in the workplace since 2006.

Jonathan Austin, Founder and CEO of Best Companies, said: “SolutionsPT should be very proud of this achievement, demonstrating world-class levels of engagement. This accreditation is recognition of all they have done to be a best company to work for, and always putting their people first.”

Digital Transformation is a journey which industrial enterprises must all undertake to be sustainable, productive and efficient. The single most critical element in successful Digital Transformation approaches centres on the enterprise’s most important asset, its people. SolutionsPT understands this and works closely with its customers to develop long-sighted digital transformation pathways that deliver Return on Investment at every step to ensure success for every enterprise.
