Top 1000 Companies To Inspire Britain
23-Feb-16

As many of you may well have heard, GEM Partnership have been named in the top 1000 companies to inspire Britain in 2016, an annual celebration sponsored by The London Stock Exchange of some of the fastest growing and most dynamic small & medium sized enterprise (SME’s) in the UK today.

But what does it examine?
This annual report examines in detail the opportunities and challenges facing SME’s and looks at the sectors and trends that will shape the future of the UK economy, given SME’s provide the catalyst for job creation and growth.

The methodology behind the report…
To be selected for the list, companies must have demonstrated the following:

  • Incorporated company status
  • SME designation
  • Financial performance in growth terms over the preceding 4 years
  • Sector benchmarking – significantly outperform sector peers

Who undertook this extensive research?
A Financial Technology company named DueDil, Co-founder of DueDil Justin Fitzpatrick believes that this report is evidence that the “United Kingdom is a great place to start and grow a company, as the UK has an incredibly friendly environment for entrepreneurs from around the world, with tax incentives, proportionate and consistent regulation, and visa structures for highly qualified migrants.”

What can we see from our perspective?
GEM Partnership are one of the 24 companies selected from the North East, we are the only one from this area within the Employment Services sector; something we are incredibly proud of. The recruitment industry in total nationally was well represented, with 53 employment companies making the list. The employment services sector is the 8th fastest growing sector within the UK.

The companies in this report have seen an average 50% increase in annual growth, with a rather large section of this growth coming from outside of London and the South East of England. This demonstrated an interesting emerging trend within the UK as entrepreneurial momentum is shifting from London to more regional parts of the UK economy, and GEM are delighted to be a contributor flying the flag for the North East of England.

We are extremely pleased to have made it on the London Stock Exchange’s Top 1000 Companies that inspire Britain and aim to repeat the feat in 2017. We are also proud to be the only Employment Services company within the North east that has made the list, and are looking forward to continuing to support business and economic growth within the region over the coming 12 months.
