Award wins and avoiding growing pains
by Jake Sargent-Group Content Director|Wed Oct 05 2022
We're thrilled to have won six awards in the last month for rapid growth, company culture and innovation with our clients My First Five Years and Chetwood Financial.
Aside from an opportunity for humble brags and back-slapping (because if you can’t shout about the wins then why bother entering) awards also provide an opportunity to pause and reflect.
Delivering digital products for ambitious clients is demanding and doing it well means time-poor teams don’t often have the chance to take stock. But award entries do just that.
Pulling together submissions and presenting your case means you’re forced to take a step back and look at how far you’ve come.
Apadmi has enjoyed significant recent growth, but the acid test in any growth journey is doing it without over-stretching your teams or compromising the things which make the business somewhere people love to work. All while simultaneously solving complex client problems.
So imagine the satisfaction at covering all bases by winning the Rapid Growth Award at this year's Prolific North Tech Awards, Best Place to Work and Business of the Year at the MPA Inspiration Awards. Plus, Best Fintech Innovation and App of the Year for our work with Chetwood Financial and the Innovation Award for our work with My First Five Years.
As the saying goes, culture eats strategy for breakfast, so keeping Apadmi’s culture intact while realising our growth ambitions is something we’re incredibly proud of. So too, it seems, are our teams with Apadmi’s Glassdoor rating higher than it’s ever been.
Say what you like about the proliferation of award ceremonies for just about everything, sometimes it’s worth taking the time to take stock.
Humble brag and back-slapping session over.
And if you’d like to join our growing team of experts, we’d love to hear from you.
