Workplace management company celebrates Queen’s recognition of their world-class innovation
London, 26 July 2015 – The Lord Lieutenant of London presents workplace management company Condeco Software with their prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise win. The company, which won an award in the Innovation category, was one of only nine companies in Greater London to receive the award this year.
As the highest official award for UK businesses, the prize is granted on the advice of the Prime Minister and an advisory committee. It identifies the best in breed of British innovation, in recognition of companies whose products and services cement the UK’s world-leading reputation.
Lesley Morgan OBE, the Lord Lieutenant of London, presenting the award to a group of Condeco’s employees, said: “This is a distinction you have all worked for, and it is truly a distinction. It demonstrates to the world your quality and your outstanding contribution to innovation.”
Condeco’s excellence is built on the back of a growing desire amongst companies to transform their workplace, empowering employee engagement, collaboration and increased efficiency. Their hardware and software products offer businesses a complete solution, with everything from meeting room booking to real-time occupancy data.
Paul Statham, founder and CEO of Condeco Software, said: “If you’re a software company who prides yourself on powering change then this gives you something to cherish for a long period of time. It’s a great honour, as hundreds of companies apply. When you hear the due diligence that the judges go through to arrive at this decision, you understand how big an achievement this is.”
“When we started out, from a small office with a handful of people, all we had was a good idea. Now, we have 11 offices around the world and over 150 people. In winning the highest business award in the country, we are delighted that our hard work has been acknowledged.”
Julie Kortens, who formerly lead transformation at Channel 4, said: “When we were looking for a new facilities management contract many years ago, we were searching for something that bound our team together and helped to change the culture to bring Channel 4 to the forefront of innovation.
“Working with Condeco suddenly enabled us to move forward, and we never looked back. Previously, we knew that we weren’t using our office space effectively, but this technology gave us empirical data to redesign the way we worked.”
