We’re 14th Best Small Company to work for!
25 February 2016, by Amy Wood
Softwire are pleased to announce that for the 6th year running we’ve placed in the top 25 on the Sunday Times’ Best Small Companies to Work for list. Having surveyed all of our wonderful staff about what it’s like to work at Softwire we came in the 14th this year, placing even higher than last year.
Softwire have always aimed to create a great place to work, this is all part of showing our staff that they are valued and giving them the room to grow and flourish in their careers. We’re very proud of this, so we thought we’d share just some of the reasons why it’s so great working here;
‘I like working at Softwire because of the culture. Being surrounded by motivated people who are keen to write good code, deliver good results, help each other out and have fun doing so makes Softwire a fantastic place to work.’
Rob P – Developer
‘I like the fact that I can count my colleagues as friends, that I’m trusted to do my work without someone peering over my shoulder constantly and that my boss actually cares about my wellbeing.’
Ellie – Office Manager
‘I like being pushed to be the best that I can. There are lots of opportunities to try new and challenging things but with people who will support you if you get out of your depth. I get lots of head-hunters approach me through LinkedIn and they can never seem to understand that I value the company atmosphere more than a 6 figure salary. I really like it here, and I’m paid well, so why would I leave?’
Chris A – Developer
‘I love the opportunity to work on interesting, challenging problems that I haven’t already solved many times before. I like working with people who are real experts. I like the trust that lets me accomplish things in a way that works for me, including the lack of clock-watching.’
Alex W – Head of Project Delivery
‘I think primarily because my contribution is respected – I’m rewarded for good work and given help to do better when I’m finding things tricky. Managers here both listen and take action to change things when they need changing.’
Jenny – Tester
So as you can see there are plenty of reasons why we’ve placed 14th and we’re very chuffed, but that’s not the most important thing here we’re most happy that our staff are happy. The happier they are, the longer we get to keep them and see them flourish!
