20 things you might not know about Leaf.

It’s hard to believe we are celebrating our 20th year!  20 years supporting our clients, providing them with industry leading technologies and a 5-star service.  Ahead of our celebration events in May we thought we share 20 nuggets of information that you might not know about us.

 

  1. It’s all about you!  Like McFly’s 2005 No1 single – All About You, our ethos here at Leaf is that it’s all about you, our clients.  Ensuring you get trusted advice and solutions, backed by our 5-star service to help your business prosper and grow.
  2. A cloudy outlook is not always a bad thing.  Did you know we have helped over 8000 users migrate to the cloud?
  3. A quick call can be all it takes.  In 2023, 80% of our tickets were closed with less than 1 hour of billable time required.
  4. We’re all in this together.  Having partnerships with industry leading vendors and distributors is key to our offering to you.
  5. Those who can’t do, learn.  Training and development are a cornerstone of our business, ensuring our staff are trained to meet the needs of a fast-moving environment.
  6. A century of experience.  Yes, we might only be 20 years young, but did you know that from our founder Steven down to our latest team member we have a combined 140+ years of service with Leaf.
  7. Fun fun fun with a capital F.  Providing industry leading managed services is a serious business, sometimes we need to let our hair down and we do that with quarterly nights out and events, from axe throwing to caving, we’ve had some fun!
  8. And the Award goes to…  2023 saw us win the ConnectWise Cyber Security Partner of the Year award, you might not know that, we don’t like to make a big deal of it😊
  9. You will you will!  If we had our own Mrs Doyle looking after us, she’d be busy as we go through roughly 2000 cups of tea and coffee each month.
  10. Giving is in our nature.  Leaf supports multiple charities across the country and our staff get involved in events to help raise much needed funds.  From marathons to bakes sales and even this year a team abseil down the Europa.  It’s all part of who we are.
  11. You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream.  Did you know that during the summer months we keep a freezer stocked with delicious frozen treats.
  12. Roll Up, Roll Up.  2024 is set to be our busiest year running client events.  We’ll continue this trend to help educate you on the latest technologies whilst giving you a reason to get away from your desk for an hour or 2.
  13. The road less travelled!  We aim to resolve 95% of your IT issues remotely, helping us cut emissions whilst getting your issue sorted quickly and efficiently.
  14. If music be the food of love play on.  Our CEO and Founder Steven has an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of all the hits from the past few decades.  He can give you the release year, artist, song title and even a few bars in his dulcet tones.
  15. Your Break!  We have our very own pool table for break/lunchtime use.
  16. Many happy returns, did you know our team members get their Birthday off!
  17. One Size does not fit all!  At Leaf we won’t try to force you down a standardised path, we’ll listen to your business needs and develop a solution with you that fits your business.
  18. Geek Alert!  Yes, we’ll unashamedly admit it, we are geeks.  We need to be to help you get the best from your IT, but we won’t bombard you with geek speak.  Unless you want us to!
  19. We are family!  That’s right, we think of Leaf as our 2nd family, creating a welcoming and nurturing staff environment is what has led to our high staff retention as mentioned in point 6.
  20. Pineapple does belong on pizza.  Controversial though it may be we can say from our many pizza themed lunches that its true.  Anchovies on the other hand, that’s only for Ninja Turtles!

 

So there you have it, well done for making it to the end and hopefully these 20 gems have helped you understand a bit more about Leaf and perhaps even brought a smile or a chuckle.  20 years is a big milestone, and we look forward to bringing you 20 more gems in 2044!
