We are still buzzing here at Recite Me Towers that we recently won the Technology Company of the Year Award at the National Centre for Diversity (NCFD) Grand Awards in recognition of our innovative service.
The award recognises our efforts towards spreading fairness, respect, equality, diversity, inclusion and engagement.
And it reflects the fact that Recite Me is a member of the Government’s Disability Confident employer scheme.
Our cloud-based web accessibility and language software can work on any website to let people customise the way the website looks and works to suit their needs.
It helps the one in five people in the UK who have a disability, plus the ten per cent of people who don’t speak English as their first language, to do what they need to do on a website.
We supply our software to customers from a wide range of sectors, including Great Western Railway (GWR), St Johnstone FC, Gatwick Airport, South East Water, Anglian Building Products and Yorkshire Ambulance Service.
The National Centre for Diversity aims to advance fairness for all in the workplace by helping organisations to embed best Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) practices.
The Grand Awards celebrate the stars who practice the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion, and honour the public and private sector organisations and people who are advancing these principles in the workplace.
Ross Linnett, Recite Me CEO and founder, said:
“We are thrilled to receive this award as it recognises the work we do to promote and achieve diversity, inclusion and equality.
“It’s even more satisfying for us to take over the award from last year’s winner Sage, as like them we started in the North East, and we are a successful growing software company aspiring to emulate their success.
“Thank you to all our staff, customers, suppliers and partners for helping us do what we do and win this award.”
Solat Chaudhry, CEO of the National Centre for Diversity said:
“It is brilliant when a SME’s commits itself to this agenda.
“It sets a great example to other SMEs that actually, Fairness, Respect, Equality, Diversity, Inclusion and Engagement (FREDIE) are important to all businesses whatever their size and actually, they determine profits levels".
