Business continuity and disaster recovery provider, Databarracks has been named winner of the Barclays Developing Resilience Award at the Business in the Community’s 2018 Annual Responsible Business Gala in London, attended by nearly 1000 business leaders and influencers and hosted by Sir Lenny Henry.

The event was the culmination of the 2018 Responsible Business Awards, run by Business in the Community – The Prince’s Responsible Business Network - to celebrate the innovative ways that businesses in the UK and abroad are making a sustained difference and transforming communities. 

Databarracks was applauded for its ongoing commitment to improving IT resilience amongst small and medium sized businesses (SMEs). At the heart of this is its jargon-free podcast offering listeners insight into real life experiences from actual incidents. The episodes cover a range of subjects relating to IT and wider business continuity issues, as well as advice that small businesses can take-on-board to improve resilience.

Additionally, Databarracks has also published a series of free online tools designed to help prevent business disruption which are now used by more than 3,000 people a year. One of these – it’s tabletop testing tool – is a simulator that walks businesses through example recoveries and offers advice at the end of each scenario.

Commenting on the award Peter Groucutt, managing director of Databarracks said: “We are thrilled to win this award. Given the standards of the other finalists in the Barclays Developing Resilience category, the award is a testament to our employees’ hard work and enthusiasm in improving resilience for SMEs.

“We view it as our responsibility to share our knowledge with organisations that might otherwise be deterred from continuity planning. We want businesses of all sizes to know that business continuity and resiliency can be achieved through simple planning, common sense and effective organisational management. This is at the core of our educational projects.”

Amanda Mackenzie, chief executive at Business in the Community, said: “Huge congratulations to Databarracks on their success in this year’s Responsible Business Awards. They are putting responsible business practices at the core of their company and are helping to create our mission to create healthy communities with successful businesses at their heart. We know they will now use this award to inspire and teach others. They do Britain plc proud with their leadership on the responsible business agenda.”

The Business in the Community Responsible Business Awards celebrate the very best in responsible business, and aim to inspire and enlighten the world with the innovative business stories that are at the heart of every community, and to highlight the untold stories of businesses that are driving positive changes in their operations both nationally, and internationally.
