Cirrus to remain small scale, focus on company culture

cirrus to remain small scale  focus on company culture

Managing director of software development company Cirrus Real Time Processing Systems Peter Freed has said the firm is content to work within a relatively modest footprint, focusing on its healthy company culture in a bid to retain talent.

Managing director of software development company Cirrus Real Time Processing Systems Peter Freed has said the firm is content to work within a relatively modest footprint, focusing on its healthy company culture in a bid to retain talent.

"I would say that our ambition is not to conquer the world," Freed told Defence Connect. "We have limits of how far we would want to grow; we are a small company and that is our culture [and] we don't necessarily want to move too far from that which has worked so well for us previously."

Asked if he could nominate a secret to the company’s recruitment process that other players might try to replicate, Freed declined to answer in great detail.

However, he did acknowledge the demanding nature of the Cirrus policy around attracting and retaining staff.

"We're very choosy on who we select," he said. "However, in terms of retention of our staff, we do find that we do tend to keep our engineers and they stay with us for long periods of time because we have a pretty fun culture internally within our organisation."

While noting that the firm was very serious in terms of meeting its business obligations, Freed said the team was made up largely of "a group of people who are fairly like-minded, wanting to crack on and get the job done".

"But it's a good culture and everyone gets on very well within our organisation, and people really don't want to leave that," he added.
