SoloProtect listed in Sunday Times Top 100: new entrant into this prestigious business awards
Lone Worker specialist, SoloProtect, placed 85th in the ‘Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies to work for 2016’ at the annual Best Companies Event which took place in London on 24th February.
The Sheffield-based company, which manufactures ‘Identicom’ – the most widely-used dedicated device for lone workers in the UK, was delighted to debut in the list after entering for the first time last year. Identicom – a small, mobile communications device that looks exactly like a worker’s ID badge – is now used by upwards of 150,000 lone workers.
SoloProtect continue to help employers reduce risk to their lone workers – often those that are community based, visiting remote locations or in a large fixed site – by providing 24/7 support, and class leading customer support. The company also helps clients understand the associated business risks that employing lone workers invariably carries – and working closely alongside them to help mitigate those financial risks.
SoloProtect relocated to a brand new UK Head Office facility in Tinsley, Sheffield in 2015. Part of the relocation saw the business invest in a purpose-built, EN50518 accredited, Alarm Receiving Centre to support SoloProtect customers.
Craig Swallow, Managing Director of SoloProtect UK commented:
“SoloProtect’s inclusion in the Sunday Times 100 list for the first time was genuinely exciting – and all down to our staff, and how engaged they are with what we’re doing in the business, and what we hope to do moving forward. I’d like to pay tribute to them and thank them for their efforts to date – and to ask that they continue to help us drive SoloProtect forward with the same dedication in 2016 and beyond.”
