London – Harrington Starr, global leader in financial services and commodities technology recruitment, has chosen VoxSmart, global leader in Communications Surveillance, as their Ultimate FinTech Workplace of 2020.

 An accolade that commends great company culture and an exemplary place to work, the Ultimate FinTech Workplace Award is an annual celebration of companies who have gone the extra mile to look after their teams. VoxSmart was chosen as this years’ winner and tops the list of 100 other inspiring entrants, including leading firms and household names in Finance and FinTech.

Among the judging panel, chaired by Harrington Starr, include multinational consultancy Ernst & Young, specialist management consultancy Baringa Partners and Capital Markets firm Deutsche Börse Group who are all well-known for their industry excellence within Financial Services, Energy and Commodities.  

One judge comments, “(VoxSmart) stands out as an exemplary workspace given a culture defined by collaboration, communication, fun, respect and recognition. With a management team following the approach to lead by example, foster internal mobility and develop individual strengths while keeping mental health and family focus as one of the top priorities, VoxSmart provides an open and productive work environment. Happy employees are productive employees.

Adrienne Muir, VoxSmart COO, is defiant that the company culture is no accident, remarking that “From the beginning of our journey, we wanted our culture to serve as our anchor to our success. We lead with our values in everything we do.” The FinTech has experienced a period of rapid growth due to increased demand for Mobile and Instant Message Capture technology during the first half of this year, which has opened many opportunities across the company.

To bolster the company’s position as global leaders in Communications Surveillance, it has been paramount to build a team with like-minded values of passion, resilience, respect, responsibility, and collaboration. “If you choose to work with us, we do not take that for granted. We thrive on watching our employees succeed and if that is by moving through the business in different roles, we embrace that wholeheartedly and support you on the journey.” Adrienne ads.

To summarise the winning entry, another award judge said, “I love that the founders set out from the start to build a great culture. The quality and thought that has gone into the cultural interventions are well rounded, predicated on a social contract with their people and come across as very authentic. The breadth, depth and authenticity behind the people practices and policies are top notch. Makes me feel like I want to meet them.

Other companies recognised for their contributions to fostering a great working environment include: VoxSmart partner Eventus SystemsCloud9 technologies and Nasdaq.
