Systemagic named a ‘Great Place to Work’ as it makes a series of new hires

By Nick Batten on 8 August, 2023

Bradford-on-Avon-based IT support provider, Systemagic, has been certified as a ‘Great Place to Work’ in an independent audit.

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, built on the belief that great employee experiences are better for people, for business and for the world.

As part of the certification process, Systemagic employees completed an anonymised Trust Index™ employee survey, which asked questions about the company’s management, employee rewards, recognition and training opportunities.

Using over 30 years of research, Systemagic’s results were compared against industry benchmarks and confirmed that employees have a consistent experience.

In addition to the employee survey, GPTW reviewed the working culture at Systemagic and found it to be a fun, engaging, psychologically and mentally healthy place to work.

Fiona Major, Operations Director said, “We’re over the moon to be externally recognised as a great place to work. As a people-focused business, we’re passionate about providing the best service to our customers and employee experience to our staff.”

Systemagic’s average employee retention is six years, compared to the industry average of 19 months.

James Eades, Managing Director, said, “We’re very fortunate to have such a long average employee retention at Systemagic. In fact, our Field Technician, Will, is celebrating 10 years with us this month.”

Systemagic’s accreditation comes as the IT support provider takes on four brand-new team members.

Imogen Hewitt joins as Helpdesk Co-Ordinator, Joe Timmins as Sales Administrator, Jody Anza as Finance Manager and Ronan Gillick as a Level 3 IT Apprentice. All four roles will increase operational efficiency and boost resources as the company continues to enjoy strong revenue and profit growth. The addition of these four roles takes Systemagic to 19 strong.
