Staffgroup makes London Stock Exchange Inspire Britain list
In its second year, the annual report celebrates some of the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized enterprises in the UK.
Commenting on the inclusion, Staffgroup’s managing director, Mark Znowski said, “It’s extremely humbling to be a business that is considered to be one of the most inspirational in Britain. To be in a select group of 1,000 out of over four million SMEs that operate throughout the UK really is a great testament to the work that has been done in our business over the past 11 years.
“Last year alone saw our London operations grow our Berlin office double in size as well as new ventures started up in Hamburg and Houston. We are now a £50m turnover company and have achieved our growth and success completely organically and we hope that it shows entrepreneurs and other business owners what can be achieved if you hire the right people and give them the autonomy and opportunity to succeed. All of our staff around the world are our single most important asset and without them we simply would not be included in this report.”
George Osborne, chancellor of the exchequer, commented, “This is a remarkable list of outstanding companies. These businesses have been built by the drive, commitment and vision of Britain’s entrepreneurs and business leaders.”
Chuka Umunna, shadow secretary of state for business, innovation and skills also said, “London Stock Exchange Group has done a stellar job of bringing together this latest version of 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain. It does exactly what it says on the tin, showcasing some of the brightest stars in the UK business firmament. The recognition of these companies is deserved, and it is right to celebrate their success.”
