Here at Allium, we have been working extremely hard this year supporting our customers throughout the UK. We have experienced a significant increase in workload in the business, especially during the second half of the year and as a result we have seen a 45% growth in site staff with a 49% increase in turnover.
Having opened our Yorkshire branch during 2020 this has allowed us to be in a position to offer our clients improved coverage in the North and Midlands regions, expanding our regional coverage enables us to further increase our services throughout the UK. In May of this year we were delighted to open the Welsh office and welcome Nicky Honing to the team to support our clients within the Wales and West regions.
As some of you may be aware during December last year we obtained UKAS ISO 17025 for Air Monitoring which enabled us to add another key service offering to new and existing clients. We have seen a significant uptake in our air monitoring services from clients in a variety of sectors and have been delighted with the progress to date.
I am particularly pleased with achieving Investors in People which recognises our dedication to invest in our people and value all their efforts, having a positive and happy workforce is critical to any organisation’s success. For these reasons, we believe investing in our people is vital and helps us to deliver the high levels of service we pride ourselves on.
And finally I would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year from all the team at Allium.
