Today, RAM Tracking has been shortlisted for The Croner Employer of the Year award at this year’s National Business Awards in partnership with Orange. RAM Tracking is one of the UK’s leading providers of vehicle tracking technology for SMEs with a mobile workforce. With headquarters in Leeds and a second office in Ontario, Canada, RAM has over 3,000 clients and a 36-strong workforce.
Going up against the likes of multimedia company UKRD – operator of 16 commercial radio stations including Stray FM and Minster FM – and London-based Baringa Partners, RAM will battle it out for the prestigious award, with the winner being revealed at the National Business Awards gala dinner held on 13th November in London.
Simon Perryman CEO, UK Commission for Employment & Skills and judge for the category said: “Vehicle tracking company Remote Asset Management is growing through customer satisfaction and creative thinking backed by excellent HR practices.”
Upon hearing the news that RAM Tracking had successfully become a finalist, managing director Chris McClellan said: “RAM has become a successful business in the UK and Canada, through foresight, determination and a passion for the industry and clients we work with. We are incredibly proud of our incredible staff retention rate and believe that the careful recruitment and nurturing of employees has played the most crucial part in 92% client retention, almost eight years’ continued growth and our launch of the ‘next generation in vehicle tracking’ earlier this year.
“We couldn’t have asked to have been shortlisted in a more prestigious category and are delighted to be a part of the exclusive community of organisations recognised for their exceptional performance.”
The National Business Awards has today revealed over 150 of Britain’s leading businesses and business leaders as finalists in the prestigious awards programme. Organisations shortlisted include a range of private, public and third sector companies, including National Grid, Marks and Spencer and London Early Years Foundation.
All National Business Awards finalists represent an annual turnover in excess of £135 billion and collectively employ over 700,000. They cover activities as diverse as digital marketing, international road haulage and logistics, water engineering and life sciences: sectors that reflect key areas of UK capability with high potential for international expansion. The diverse size of the companies entering is also huge – ranging from a business with an annual turnover of less than £50k to high growth and high value companies with multi-billion revenues.
Baroness Virginia Bottomley, Chair of Judges said: “This year has been a challenging environment for British businesses: these finalists demonstrate how companies are succeeding in the current climate through innovation, originality and tenacity. It’s good to see a broad range of companies both in sector and size – an impressive representation of the potential British businesses have. Congratulations to all our finalists.”
