A Visit From The BBC

Jack Simpson

Head of Marketing and Communications

I know it was you, Fredo.

Look who popped in to our offices!

Our Chief Executive Craig Dean was interviewed for the BBC’s Sunday Politics show recently. Here are some stills from the program. Craig was asked about Web Apps views regarding the TA. As a company we are proud to support the armed forces and employ a reservist. However we do have some concerns, as would any small business if there was an increased reliance upon them.

Here’s a summary of what Craig said:

“A lot of the changes that are coming in place now do look like the government are trying to get businesses to foot the bill for the army. People can be called up for national emergencies very quickly. For us, that means he [the reservist] could phone up one day, and say ‘I’m not coming to work today.’ As we employ such talented people at Web Apps it would be difficult to find the same calibre of replacement so easily.”

It was very exciting having the BBC come to our offices for the day. I’m sure our upstairs office were jealous that some of the team were given their 15 minutes (or seconds) of fame!
