Following an incredibly successful twelve months of rapid development, growth and expansion, Sage People is delighted to announce that it has been included in the Deloitte 2014 UK Technology Fast 50. The award recognizes Sage People as one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the UK.

The Deloitte UK Fast 50 is one of the UK’s foremost technology awards. Covering all sectors of technology, from B2B and consumer tech companies, to services and gaming, this prestigious award is presented to companies by ranking based on revenue growth over the last five years.

Through its global cloud HRMS (HR management system), Sage People has been hugely successful in helping fast growing mid-size organizations transform the way they acquire, engage, manage and develop their people. This is particularly the case for rapidly expanding multinationals whose growth is being hampered by their inability to manage the changing nature of work and the emergence of a new modern workforce. This, coupled with a global skills crisis, requires organizations to meet the challenges of finding new ways to engage their people, providing consistently great workforce experiences in order to be able to attract, motivate and retain the best talent.

“Sage People is disrupting the cloud HR market with an innovative product that meets the needs of growing global mid-size organizations that know more about their customers than their workforces,” said Adam Hale, CEO at Sage People. “To be recognized with an award that has been previously presented to companies and customers like Betfair and SDL, that have been equally as disruptive in their own markets, brings us a great sense of appreciation and pride.”

The award tops off a great year of innovation and continued customer wins for Sage People. When global tech company SDL wanted to integrate their formerly autonomous businesses in thirty-eight countries into a single operation, they chose Sage People to take them there.

Another notable customer is Betfair, where Sage People beat Workday to provide a global cloud HR system that manages Betfair’s 1,600 multinational workforce; paramount was the ability to implement rapidly, delivering their system within ninety days.

“Our treble digit growth in the last twelve months is evidence that Sage People is meeting the needs of our target market,” commented Hale. “We’re enabling our customers to manage their modern workforces, delivering immediate value, while enabling responsive and agile growth.”

Sage People joins the Fast 50 at number 39, and 4th fastest growing firm in the South East. As winners in the UK Technology Fast 50 receives automatic entry into the Deloitte Fast 500 EMEA programme, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology companies in Europe, the Middle East and Africa over the last five years. Adam Hale adds, “Our product is all about helping companies to maximize their talent, allowing talent the freedom to express themselves in the roles they excel in. This recognition of our growth is perfect evidence of how talented talent can grow companies fast and firm.”
