Press release from: Pro-Sapien



Leading EHS software provider on SharePoint and Office 365 Pro-Sapien has demonstrated its commitment to fairness and equality by taking the Scottish Business Pledge.

The Scottish Business Pledge is a partnership between Government and business, in which businesses pledge to up to 9 components. Pro-Sapien has committed to all 9 components The Scottish Business Pledge is a partnership between Government and business, in which businesses pledge to up to 9 components. Pro-Sapien has committed to all 9 components, which include:

1. Paying the living wage
2. Not using exploitative zero hours contracts
3. Supporting progressive workforce engagement
4. Investing in Youth
5. Making progress on diversity and gender balance
6. Committing to an innovation programme
7. Pursuing international business opportunities
8. Playing an active role in the community
9. Committing to prompt payment

As of February 2017, 334 Scottish businesses had signed up to the Business Pledge which represents 0.2% of Scotland’s registered business base. Of this 334, Pro-Sapien is one of 112 companies that are already fulfilling at least eight elements of the pledge.

As an IT company, Pro-Sapien is part of an industry that struggles with gender imbalances. In the UK just 13% of computer science students are female . Pro-Sapien has always maintained the position that it hires the best person for the job and as part of this aim is proud to commit to making progress on a balanced workforce, particularly through the company’s investment in youth. In other business areas such as Marketing, the Pro-Sapien workforce is currently 50/50 female/male.

Murray Ferguson, Commercial Director at Pro-Sapien said: “Since day one Pro-Sapien has always been committed to providing employees with a great place to work. By taking the Scottish Business Pledge, we hope to formalise our ambitions of equality, fairness and productivity. We are also proud to be part of Scotland’s exporters community, with 75% of new business coming from out with the UK. We look forward to continuing to pursue the nine components of the SBP as the company grows.”

Product innovation, research and development, one of the SBP pledges, will be key to Pro-Sapien’s growth in 2017/2018 as the company increases exports and significantly expands its development team.

The Scottish Business Pledge can be taken by any registered business in Scotland that pays the living wage (£8.34) or above, that already meets at least two other components, and that can commit to all other elements of the pledge in order to “bring your business to a different level.”

Pro-Sapien specializes in providing tailored Environmental, Health, Safety and Quality (EHSQ) management software on SharePoint and Office 365 for some of the world's largest organizations. Developed with high risk and heavily regulated sectors in mind, Pro-Sapien’s award-winning HSEQ Innovate software harnesses the Microsoft SharePoint or Azure/Office 365 based platforms to support business processes, manage forms and produce reports.
