Sophos Employerof the Year Award

Abingdon-based Sophos has been named Employer of the Year at the Tech Leader Awards.

This is a flagship awards programme for the UK’s thriving IT industry, bringing together the highest achievers to honour excellence in tech leadership and showcase the powerful contributions of technology and innovation in today’s economy.

The UK’s world-leading tech sector is a vital part of the British economy, with digital industries growing 32 per cent faster than the rest of the economy, according to Tech City UK. The UK’s digital tech industries have a combined annual turnover of £161 billion, and the benefits are felt well beyond digital companies. Nearly half of digital jobs today exist in traditionally non-digital industries and organisations in all sectors must now ingrain technology in all facets of their business or face the consequences of being disrupted.

Tech Leaders Awards recognises the leading figures at the forefront of this disruption and innovation, playing a central role in helping organisations use technology to its full potential as a driver of business value, both at the top line and bottom line, as well as in the public sector for the benefit of UK citizens.

A Sophos spokesperson said: “One of the goals Sophos holds dear is to create and foster a positive, inspirational work environment, so we are very proud to announce that we’ve been named “Employer of the Year” at the Tech Leader Awards 2018.
