The Guidance Group listed in the Top 200 fastest growing companies in the East Midlands

May News


The Guidance Group has been listed at number 16 in the Top 200 fastest growing companies in the East Midlands.  The Top 200 showcases businesses in the region which are pushing into new markets, taking on new employees and setting themselves apart from their competitors.  The region wide report compiled by Grant Thornton, in partnership with CBI East Midlands, carries out a detailed analysis of the financial performance of the 200 businesses which have delivered the greatest sustained profit before tax over a three year period.

Presenting the East Midlands Top 200 2015 findings was Phil Sayers, partner in Grant Thornton’s Leicester office, who said: "“The growth of the East Midlands Top 200 companies appears to have been achieved in a number of ways - notably diversification into new markets, particularly new geographic markets. Many companies indicated their success over the last three years was also due in part to taking difficult decisions to invest in items such as people and R&D during the recession, which are now paying off."

In August last year, a report was published which suggested that, with the exception of London, the East Midlands was the fastest growing region in England. Given the tight criteria for sustained profit growth required for companies to be included, it is a testament to the strength of the regional economy that so many companies, including the Guidance Group qualified to be considered, with 46 out of the 200 companies located in Leicestershire.

Recognition that is generated with our inclusion in these reports, both locally and nationally will always be down to the effort of our employees.  As a business we continue to invest in our infrastructure in developing our team of talented employees that form the heartbeat of our company.
