Firm makes top 40 in prestigious ‘best’ list
AFINANCIAL technology firm has kicked off the year with a bang after being named among the best companies to work for in the UK.
Quint Group, based on Oxford Road, Macclesfield, has also shown its support for the community by raising more than £5,000 for the East Cheshire Hospice.
Quint Group, which was founded in 2009 and operates in Poland, the US and Australian territories, employs more than 100 staff, with 76 based at the Macclesfield headquarters.
It has been ranked number 40 in the Sunday Times Best Small Companies to Work For list for 2017.
Mike Ransom, managing director at Quint Group, said: “The Sunday Times’ best companies ranking is widely acknowledged as the benchmark for employee engagement in this country and to be selected is a great achievement.
“We’re proud of the culture that we have created here at Quint and we support our staff in any way that we can.
“Development of our staff is very important to us and we have a learning and development manager who focuses on this.
“Balance is important in the workplace – we encourage all staff take regular time away from their desks in our break- out area where they can play pool, table tennis and Xbox.
“It’s an exciting time here at Quint after the launch of our new comparison site moneyguru. com and we have plans for further expansion both here in the UK and abroad.”
When they are not busy working, staff at the Macclesfield headquarters have been taking part in a number of fundraising activities, including the Born Survivor Challenge, a sponsored cycle cover- ing the distance from Macclesfield to Warsaw, and several baking competitions in aid of East Cheshire Hospice.
Mr Ransom added: “We are extremely happy to be able to help out the local community in any way we can.
“It’s not just about rais- ing money, it’s about giving back to the community.”
Camilla Crockett, corporate and community relationship manager at East Cheshire Hospice, said: “Quint has supported East Cheshire with fundraising and volunteering over a number of years, as a local business their support is key to the hospice.
“Having worked with their staff on different projects it is a pleasure to see how engaged they are with the cause, and how ready to get involved they are.
“Their enthusiasm, ideas and can-do attitude has made a real impact here at the hospice.”
The Group was also recently shortlisted for the Amazon Employer of the Year award and for best use of mobile for the FS Tech awards, which recognise excellence and innovation in the ‘fintech’ sector.
The awards are independently judged and the winners will be announced at the FStech Awards gala dinner and ceremony on March 23 at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square.
