Digital engineering and innovation agency, Softwire, has won three Best Companies awards and secured a ‘world-class’ rating for employee engagement.

Softwire, the digital design and software engineering agency, has been recognised in three major awards in the prestigious 2022 Best Companies Lists.

“We’ve had over 20 years to embed our cultural values, which underpin this success. By establishing a strong foundation in employee engagement we’ve been able to come through the last year in such great shape.

“The benefits of engagement are clear: when we have a loyal workforce that sees solutions where others see problems, and that feels empowered, energised, and supported in doing whatever’s needed, we can deliver extraordinary results for our employees, customers, and for the business.”
