Sepura has received two significant awards in quick succession, to round off a year of growth and record revenues.

Following its latest assessment with Investors in People (IiP), Sepura is delighted to achieve the ‘We Invest in People Silver Accreditation’ – a rating that only 20% of companies assessed succeed in achieving. This followed on quickly from Sepura being confirmed as “Large Business of the Year” at the Cambridge News Business Awards.

Sepura radios and business awardCommenting on the double success, Sepura CEO Steve Barber said: “Our people are the reason for our continuing success, and the hard work we have undertaken to create a culture of bringing our people together productively are reflected in these awards. We are investing heavily in our R&D teams to bring our next generation LTE products to the critical communications market as well as building our commercial and business teams to support future growth.  IiP Silver accreditation is further proof that Sepura is the right place for highly skilled software and hardware developers and business specialists, to come to work and develop their careers. Sepura is a place where every employee can make a real difference in supporting our customers at the forefront of public safety, and to build the critical communication devices of the future.”

The accreditation is confirmation from Investors in People that Sepura has the right principles in place to manage its internal policies, but also that employees, team leaders and management are actively working to ensure consistency across the business, with the benefits being felt by the entire workforce.

Paul Devoy, CEO of Investors in People, commented: “We’d like to congratulate Sepura on this achievement; Silver accreditation on We Invest in People is a remarkable effort for any organisation, and places Sepura in company with leading organisations that truly understand the value of people.”

The Cambridge News Large Business Award was handed to Sepura at an online event last month, and saw Sepura recognised for stellar achievements in the past 18 months, including large fleet radio sales to the Metropolitan Police, Norfolk and Suffolk Constabularies and emergency services in Brazil, Sweden, Norway, Belgium and the Netherlands, among many others.

Joe McHugh, HR Director at Sepura added: “I want to dedicate both the Cambridge News Large Business of the Year Award and the Investors in People accreditation to our employees here in Cambridge and around the world who have all worked tirelessly to make Sepura a global leader in critical communications.”
