Geeks Win the Award of Best Business in London for Training & Development


We’re hugely proud to announce that Geeks won Best Business for Training & Development in the 2014 London Business Awards last night.

Over the last two years we have been working with over 20 young employees to provide them with exceptional training and development opportunities in various challenging roles. Our tailor-made system has enabled them to receive enhanced training through collaboration on our online training platform and software-verified hands on practices. With support and coaching from our directors and senior developers, these employees now far outperform their competitors.

“We have developed software for our in-house training in which every employee has an account and can see the list of their training which includes videos, exercises, group discussions and articles,” commented Somayeh Aghnianejad, “…employees can also share their knowledge using the same software.

Also employees are provided with resources such as books, third party technical education material, and are able to take exams at no extra cost, whilst they are encouraged to attend courses and conferences arranged by the company.”

On accepting the award last night, Director Paymon Khamooshi commented, “Geeks’ team-oriented attitude creates an opportunity for investment in our young talent. We are hugely proud to win this award tonight which demonstrates an on-going commitment to training and development within our business to ensure our clients receive an exceptional service.”

Geeks’ focus on training and development did not go unnoticed by the judges at the London Business Awards, who awarded them with “Best Business for Training & Development” over 13 other finalists in the category. The London Business Awards 2014 ceremony was hosted by Prospects on 17th June, at the Brewery in London.

Rose Saunders, from the London Business Awards said, “Congratulations to everyone involved in the awards. The judges were blown away by the standard of entries… tonight’s awards proved that there are so many fantastic companies in the capital. For this reason, I am convinced that the London Business Awards will become even bigger in the coming years.”
