Endava recognised as Business Services Company of the Year and Employer of the Year in its category in Romania, as well as for its Wellbeing programme
During the 7th edition of the Romanian Business Services Forum & Awards Gala in 2021, Endava was awarded 3 prizes: one for Business Services Company of the Year (for companies over 800 employees), another for Employer of the Year (800 employees), and finally, for its recently launched Wellbeing group-wide programme. These awards reinforce that Endava continues to be the employer of choice in our key markets.
The Romanian Business Services Forum & Awards Gala now in its seventh edition, is an elite event and a platform to recognise, reward and celebrate the success of the most prominent companies, projects and individuals acting in the business shared services field in Romania.
BUSINESS SERVICES COMPANY OF THE YEAR (over 800 employees)
During the challenging year of 2020 represented by the pandemic, Endava, like many other companies, had to adjust its operating model and adapt to the new working trends and environment. In March 2020, it was in a matter of days that all our employees switched to fully working from home and do so still today. We monitored closely the productivity impact of this change and realised it remained stable with an average 5% uplift while working from home.
The period has marked a continuous growth for us. While initially some clients from the most affected industries had to put a stop to their projects, Endava soon was hit with an increased demand from new clients needing digital projects to help them navigate the challenges of the “new world”.
EMPLOYER OF THE YEAR (over 800 employees)
We continue to strongly believe in our people and manage to convey our values among our employees. We care about diversity, inclusion, engagement, and the wellbeing of our employees. Amongst the main initiatives we have undertaken recently, to support this are:
WOMEN IN TECH: seeing more and more women embracing careers in tech and making a difference as IT professionals, leaders, mentors, and colleagues. Around 35% of our people are women with near gender parity in graduate and entry-level technical roles.
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION: we want all of our people to be the best they can be, and we’re committed to ensuring that there is both equality of access and equity of opportunity.
ENGAGEMENT: Endava cares deeply that everyone should have a voice and feels heard. Our CEO and the Executive Team regularly engage with our people, answering questions in company gatherings and live broadcasts hosted in all our regions.
BEST WELLBEING INITIATIVE
In 2020, we launched the Endava Wellbeing as a global programme that brings together a wealth of tools and resources organised around four key pillars – Mind, Body, Home, and Community. The programme encourages exploration of the mechanics of the Mind, discovering the most critical steps in taking care of the Body, examining the need for digital detoxing at Home, and learning about the important role Community plays in having a sense of belonging.
As of May 2021, over 7,000 participants joined the workshops and masterclasses led by renowned experts organised within the programme. More than 2,500 people signed up for different Wellbeing Apps and communities, and the content from our broad digital library was accessed over 4,000 times. Satisfaction levels are high, with 97% of participants recommending this Wellbeing programme to a colleague.
