NaturalHR wins scale-up business of the year at 2021 West Midlands Tech Awards

Natural HR is incredibly proud to have won the Scale-Up Business of the Year category at this year’s prestigious West Midlands Tech Awards.

This is the second West Midlands Tech Awards that has seen Natural HR bring home a prize, with the last awards in 2019 seeing our COO and Co-Founder was named the West Midlands Woman in Tech.

Sarah Dowzell, COO and Co-Founder of Natural HR, attended the glittering awards ceremony alongside her husband and CEO Jason. On winning the award, she said: “We are thrilled to have been named the West Midlands Scale-Up Business of the Year. It is an honour to be recognised for all of our dedicated team’s hard work to grow Natural HR into the successful business it is today.

“This award is testament to the unwavering commitment of our ever-growing team: from sales through to support, development, marketing and implementation; it is fantastic to be recognised in celebrating Natural HR’s achievements and growth.”

But what does scale-up business of the year mean? The Reach PLC Judging panel criteria for the category is; “We are looking for established tech and digital businesses which are more than three years old, have more than £1m in annual revenue and are currently experiencing or getting set for rapid growth.

“You will have proven your product or service in your initial market or with key customers and now see a route to growth by expanding into new locations, launching new products and securing new customers.”

With December fast approaching, this is another success for the Birmingham-based team as our team continues to grow and scale up as 2020 has seen us welcome nine new colleagues in key positions, including marketing, sales, service and development – taking us to a headcount of 37 employees with 5 more new team members due to join in the next few weeks.
