First Point has been included in a landmark report by The London Stock Exchange which identifies 1,000 of the UK’s most notable small and medium-sized enterprises to inspire Britain.
First Point is one of just 22 staffing and recruiting firms included in the list, and one of only four in Greater London. In total, 3 million companies were researched for this report, and to qualify for inclusion they had to demonstrate not only a positive growth in revenue over the last four years, but also an increase in employee numbers, workspace, contract wins or patent filings and revenue growth against peers.
“It is always good to receive some recognition, especially as we did not apply to be included and it is not only recruitment companies but a large selection of UK business that were researched for the report” says David Taylor, M.D. of First Point Group
As well as identifying 1,000 companies, the report examines in detail the opportunities and challenges facing SMEs and looks at the sectors and trends that will shape the future of the UK economy. “The UK has some of the most inspiring growth businesses in the world. Our report showcases some of these fast-growing and dynamic companies; the type of companies we believe will help fuel the long-term growth of the UK economy,” says Xavier Rolet, chief executive of London Stock Exchange Group.
