Due to massive expansion our Tech team is growing under our CTO who has a vision of Alcumus not just being Technology led but Software driven. The markets we operate in were once highly reliant on paper-based processes, transitioned to digitised forms and our new strategy is to develop revolutionary applications to enable our clients to operate healthier, safer and stronger workplaces. With over 20% growth last year, the Alcumus business is expanding rapidly and offers unrivalled career progression opportunities with investment in our employees at all levels of their career.
 
Technology is one of our key pillars of focus for the next few years and I am pleased to show that we have had 233% growth in tech in 2018 alone! This is part of our drive to become software led with the right developers and testers in place to help us achieve our goals of providing more effective software solutions to our business units and their clients.
