We are delighted to announce that Quanta has received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade 2016. The Queen’s Award is the UK’s highest official accolade for business success and it is a great honour for the team at Quanta to receive this prestigious title.

The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise recognises outstanding achievement in UK businesses across three categories: innovation, international trade and sustainable development. As a winner, Quanta will also enjoy a reception at Buckingham Palace hosted by Her Majesty the Queen on 14 July 2016.

Founded in 1992, Quanta has been successfully recruiting in the life sciences and renewable energy sectors. Now operating in over 20 countries from headquarters in Berkhamsted, their strategy has always been focused on establishing a strong UK base and developing a high performing multilingual team to service their clients.

This has really paid off with year on year growth for the business and now a Queen’s Award for International trade. This approach, combined with a positive company culture and commitment to ‘One Team’, has enabled them to maintain an extremely high quality of service based on solid expertise within their specialist sectors.

In 2010, they commenced a language training policy and now offer fully funded German and French language training to all employees. They also provide English tuition to international employees to continue their professional development.

Quanta’s commitment to recruitment excellence has not gone unnoticed within the industry. They have been recognised as ‘One of 1000 companies to inspire Britain’ for the past three years running and are a current holder of the 2016 Best UK Staffing Firms to Work For.

Quanta CEO and Founder Stephen Trigg is thrilled with the announcement.

“This is a significant milestone in the development of the company’s business strategy and a great accolade for all the employees of Quanta who put in such a tremendous amount of effort every working day of the year. Quanta will continue to build upon the successes achieved to date, seeking further opportunities to enhance their growth and reputation within the international arena.”
