Phaidon International named Best Small Company to Work For 2016
Phaidon International has been named Best Small Company to Work For by The Sunday Times.
The company was originally listed second, but it says that The Sunday Times visited its offices last week and informed CEO, Adam Buck, personally that the company's listing had been changed to first.
The company says that the recognition comes at an exciting time for the group, after securing £18m investment from Muzinich & Co to create a platform to accelerate growth.
The group specialise in securing mid-senior level talent in STEM sectors for clients in over 63 countries worldwide, from its offices in the US, Europe and Asia. Plans already underway include further US expansion with a local office opening in Chicago, adding to the success of New York, San Francisco and Boston; Germany and Benelux are next for Europe.
Phaidon states that people are central to its growth strategy and the development of every individual, from entry level to director, is prioritised to ensure growth targets are met. Development frameworks have been introduced to ensure the path to progression is accessible and transparent; The “Learn To” training academy, popular with consultants of all levels has been extended to offer 38 new self-service courses, ensuring every employee has the necessary resources to progress in their role.
Stuart Batchelor, Chief Strategy Officer, said, “The leadership team is committed to the development and well-being of employees, it’s the internal talent we develop that truly fuels our growth.”
Adam Buck, CEO, commented, "It has always been our aim to create a positive working environment where success can be achieved and enjoyed by everyone. It makes me very proud that in just 12 years we have achieved Best Company to Work For status across all industries, it’s probably the best news I have had all year!”
