Lone worker protection device specialist SoloProtect has been 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 24 February.
The Sheffield-based company, which manufactures Identicom – one of the most widely-used dedicated devices for lone worker safety and security in the UK – was delighted to make its debut in this prestigious 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 employed by upwards of 150,000 lone workers.
SoloProtect continues to assist employers in reducing 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. The company also helps clients understand the associated business risks that employing lone workers invariably carries, and works closely alongside them at all times to help mitigate those financial and employee-focused risks.
Last year, SoloProtect relocated to a brand new UK head office facility in Tinsley, Sheffield. That relocation also witnessed the business investing in a purpose-built, EN50518-accredited Alarm Receiving Centre specifically designed to support its many customers.
Craig Swallow, managing director at SoloProtect UK, told Risk UK: “SoloProtect’s inclusion in The Sunday Times Top 100 list for the first time was genuinely exciting. This result is really 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 fantastic efforts to date, and also to ask that they continue to help us drive SoloProtect forward with the same dedication in 2016 and beyond.”
