HTG Receives Two National Accolades for Investing in Employees

South Tyneside Pledge organisation Howell Technology Group (HTG) has seen revenue grow by 60% and its headcount grow by 30% over the past 12 months following a string of new client wins. 

The growth follows a significant investment by the company last year to double the size of its South Tyneside head office at Hebburn’s Monkton Business Park South.

The investment paved the way for the company to increase its headcount and increase its range of services, resulting in increased business from both existing and new clients.

In addition to investing in growth, the company has also made a conscious effort to invest in introducing new employee benefits, leading to HTG receiving two major national accolades.

This includes being named among The Sunday Times Best Places to Work list for 2023 and becoming one of 61 organisations to take part in Mind’s seventh annual Workplace Wellbeing Index, securing a Gold Award.

Louise Roughley, Director of People Experience at HTG, said:

“We were absolutely thrilled to be recognised by MIND and The Sunday Times as an exemplar employer.

“As a business, we have made a real conscious effort over recent years to make HTG a really great place to work however this is just the start.

“Over the coming months and years, we will continue to work with our team to help ensure we remain an employer of choice and ensure our people really feel valued within their roles.

“Afterall, if we are to maintain a thriving, mentally healthy culture at HTG, then it is going to take continuous effort from everyone, but we are unwavering in our long-term commitment to improving the wellbeing of our team and making HTG a real employer of choice.”

Cllr Margaret Meling, Lead Member for Economic Growth and Transport on South Tyneside Council, said:

“HTG is a real South Tyneside success story, so it is fantastic to see the company continuing to invest here and create jobs for local people.

“We are also delighted that they have become one of more than 200 organisations to sign up to the South Tyneside Pledge which aims to boost local economic activity, reduce health inequalities, cut carbon emissions, and enhance civic pride for the benefit of the whole borough.

“They are a real example to follow for anyone looking to set up and grow a business and we are incredibly proud that they call South Tyneside home.”

The South Tyneside Pledge aims to encourage South Tyneside organisations to focus on local activities and practical steps such as local procurement and recruitment, that can help South Tyneside to thrive. Promoting a healthy workplace and workforce is one of the ways businesses can get involved.
