Fairsail scores spectacular hat-trick in Deloitte UK Tech Fast 50

Deloitte - Fast 50 2016

Fairsail, has been ranked as one of the UK’s fastest growing technology companies in the Deloitte 2016 UK Technology Fast 50 for the third consecutive year. Fairsail placed 13th in the 19th year of the prestigious technology listing, moving up from last year’s 15th position and ranking 2nd in the South East region.

“When joining Fairsail I wanted to achieve two things: firstly, to disrupt HR as we know it by offering HR and people solutions that would enable mid-market businesses all over the world to become People Companies. Secondly, I wanted to create a business that was built upon customer success; working with some of the best brands to help them get the best out of their people. Fairsail is firmly on this path and Deloitte’s recognition is testament to our team and customers globally,” said Adam Hale, CEO at Fairsail.


Celebrating technology innovation and entrepreneurship, the awards rank the UK’s 50 fastest growing technology companies based on their revenue growth over the last four years. Fairsail secured its placement after growing 1277% over the last four years and increasing its headcount from 8 in 2012, to its current tally of over 110. It marks the end of an astonishing year for the company with major highlights including the expansion of a strategic partnership with Sage, as well as a £10m investment from the technology giant. The company also expanded internationally, opening its third US office in Chicago, IL.

Fairsail’s inclusion in the Deloitte UK Tech Fast 50 is the company’s latest accolade in a year which also saw the company win the first prize at Clearwater International’s Cloudex Awards, place 21st in The Sunday Times Tech Track and take home ‘Scale Up of the Year’ title at the WCIT Enterprise Awards. The company was also this week announced as the fastest growing company in the UK’s “Silicon Valley” by The Business Magazine and winner of Cloud Innovation Provider of the Year at the UK IT Industry Awards.

Hale continued: “As a collective, the Fairsail team works very hard to ensure we’re providing outstanding workforce visibility for our customers, and we’re seeing that dedication and passion pay off both in bottom line terms, and also through the increasing industry recognition we’re receiving year-on-year.”

Fairsail is joined on The Deloitte 2016 UK Technology Fast 50 list by its customer, Skyscanner, the global travel search site.

“The UK Tech Fast 50 listing is a credit to our team, but also a tribute to our fantastic customers,” concluded Hale. “On behalf of our team, I’d like to congratulate the other 49 companies that feature on this year’s list.”
