Portsmouth-based Telecoms and Internet provider M12 Solutions were delighted to win an award at the prestigious Business Excellence Awards in February. Having been announced as finalists for the Training Programme of the Year Award in December, the M12 team were absolutely thrilled to find out on the night that they had won.

Organised by The News, Portsmouth and held at Portsmouth Guildhall, the awards evening was one not to be missed. At the black tie affair, the evening brought together local business leaders to celebrate Portsmouth’s business success and achievements. The awards ranged from Entrepreneur of the Year and Apprentice of the Year, to those celebrating Diversity, Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability. There were many fantastic nominees and a total of 15 deserving winners, including M12 Solutions.

M12 boasts some of the best retention figures in the market, including employees that have been with the company since its inception in 2003. Over the years, the leadership team have committed more than ever on staff engagement initiatives with away days, performance and development programmes, social activities and charity initiatives. M12 launched their Internet brand, Giganet, in 2018, which has prompted rapid growth of the team and an increased importance placed on training.

Commenting on their win, M12’s Marketing Manager Ruth Seals said: “It is such a privilege to be recognised locally for our achievements and the awards evening was an amazing way to celebrate. M12 is a brilliant place to work and we place a lot of emphasis on training, empowering and motivating our staff. On average our employees have been with us for 8 years, which is a great achievement, especially in this industry.”

Andrew Skipsey, Managing Director of M12/Giganet said: “What a great feeling to win this award. Apart from being a very nice attribute for the business, winning an award says to our customers that we care about the professional development of our team, that we are a really attractive place for people looking for a new position and that we stand out in our Telecoms and Internet industry. All quite hard when there is some hot competition out there. Thank you to the judges and sponsors and most importantly to our M12 team who made this happen.”
