Verifile wins the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2019!
Today, I am thrilled to announce that Verifile has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade. Our award recognises the outstanding growth in our overseas sales over the past six years.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the UK’s most prestigious business awards, recognising and celebrating business excellence across the UK. Our award highlights the growing demand worldwide for pre- and post-employment screening, as organisations look to mitigate their recruitment risks and insider threats.
Our business is all about helping employers to mitigate their recruitment risks. These include the risk of not complying with industry regulations or internal company procedures or of exposing their business to fraud, theft, brand damage, fines or lawsuits. Employers are all too aware of the potential fall-out from hiring the wrong person – and the cost, which can be financial, reputational or even human. Increasingly, this is now a global undertaking, helping businesses from around the world to expand their workforces.
I’m delighted that all the hard work put in by the team to grow this important part of our business has now been recognised by this Queen’s Award. I’m also incredibly proud that an idea I had over fifteen years ago has taken hold to the extent that we’re in a position to claim such a prestigious award.
Established in 1965, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are designed to recognise the achievements of British businesses. Verifile now joins over 4,500 other businesses recognised for their export achievements in the programme’s 50-year history.
We are elated to become the first screening company to receive this much-coveted honour, highlighting our status as a premium provider of global background screening services.
