HR provider’s 1150% growth over the last 4 years recognized with prestigious accolade

Global cloud HRMS provider Sage People has been named as one of the UK’s fastest growing technology companies for the second consecutive year. The company placed 15th in the Deloitte 2015 UK Technology Fast 50, one of the UK’s most prestigious technology awards.

The Deloitte 2015 UK Technology Fast 50, now in its 18th year, celebrates innovation and entrepreneurship across all technology sectors, and is awarded on the basis of revenue growth. Sage People won its place on the list in recognition of its rapid expansion, growing 1150% over the last four years, and quadrupling its staff in the last two.

Sage People’s HRMS (HR management system) has had enormous success in helping small to mid-sized organizations transform the acquisition, engagement, management and development of their workforces. As well as adding a series of high profile clients to its customer portfolio over the last twelve months, Sage People has risen to become the number one HR app on the industry-leading platform, and is one of their top three Independent Software Vendors (ISV) in the EMEA market.


“Sage People has worked hard throughout 2015 to build on its reputation as a truly disruptive force in the global cloud HR market, emerging as a clear winner against other larger vendors because of our comprehensive functionality and our niche understanding of global mid-size organizations,” said Adam Hale, CEO at Sage People. “We are delighted to be part of the Deloitte Fast 50 for the second year in a row. The past 12 months have been fantastic for the Sage People brand and our global team, and across the company it’s a great recognition of our collective achievements to have been placed once again.”

The award is the third of its kind in recent months for Sage People, which has also been named as one of Aragon Research’s “Hot Vendors”, and been highly commended in the Cloud Provider of the Year category at Computing’s UK IT Awards.

“We’re delighted to be supporting businesses with an intuitive HR solution that is proactively helping mid-size businesses to have superb workforce visibility, hugely increased HR productivity and to deliver world class workforce experiences,” said Hale.

Sage People placed at number 15 in the Fast 50 – a rise of 24 points from number 39 in last year’s list. They were also ranked the second fastest growing company in the South East. Others named in the Fast 50 were Sage People customer Skyscanner and partner Kimble, also a part of the Sage Live and Salesforce ecosystem.

“Being part of the Fast 50 is a tribute not only to the team we have at Sage People, but also our growing client list,” said Hale.We’d also like to extend our congratulations to all other firms who have joined the Fast 50 this year – we’re in great company.”
