In addition to providing software solutions, they also perform staffing analyses/workforce studies.

Care Systems UK exercises ultimate integrity in being frank and open, whether it be matters relating to client projects, financial dealings, hiring, office place treatment of employees, or any other business or personnel matters. They also impose timelines on themselves, even when their clients or partners do not due to internal constraints and are radically honest with all their clients and partners.
In what way does Care Systems UK support the local community, and why is this important to them?
Care Systems UK has always been committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. They actively eliminate all forms of discrimination on the grounds of race, ethnicity, religion, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, and age in order to maintain a healthy work environment with equal opportunities for all their staff.

What made you choose Smithfield Works (and Stoke-on-Trent) as the location for the business to start/grow?
Care Systems found Smithfield works office to be a one-stop shop. It had everything we were looking for like a clean new building at a prime location close to the city centre, it has the latest infrastructure with high-end security/CCTV cameras etc. Another reason was that the rent we pay covers all utility bills etc. This saves us time doing administrative work and focus on our business.
Smithfield also promotes helping local businesses which is another reason we choose this place. From the day we contacted Smithfield their community manager Ms Teece answered all our queries and explained/showcased the building and the benefits it can offer to our requirements. So, we did not have to look elsewhere.
