Logistics technology specialist recognised as outstanding employer
A fast-growing technology company that specialises in providing software to the logistics sector is celebrating after being named as an outstanding employer by the UK's leading evaluator of employer cultures.
Wise, a technology firm that has created a platform to help logistics companies engage their self-employed workforce, recently undertook a rigorous testing process and staff satisfaction survey in collaboration with Great Place To Work(TM). The Wise platform is currently used by over 250 logistics firms to help engage their self-employed subcontractor workforce across a variety of areas including: recruitment, onboarding, finance and importantly, compliance. Following this staff satisfaction survey, the Solihull-based firm was awarded Great Place To Work(TM) certification, with an overall staff satisfaction level of 89%.
This news comes as the technology company has, earlier this September, moved into a brand new large office space in Solihull town centre, bringing together the entire workforce. Simon Hills, Chief Executive Officer of Wise, said: "Over the last eighteen months, the business has gone through a tremendous amount of change and growth with the headcount going from 15 to 47. "Throughout all this time, everyone within Wise was determined to not only retain but enhance our culture of compassion and inclusivity and to have this kind of positive feedback and Great Place To Work(TM) certification confirmed in the week we move into our new home is wonderful."
