Office Move 2023: A Glimpse into Our Modern Workplace
In September 2023, Fitzrovia IT relocated to our new offices in Rathbone Place. This move was not merely a change of address; it marked the creation of a modern workplace designed for the future. The spacious layout facilitates expansion, inspiration and collaboration.

Investors in People – Gold Standard Excellency
One of our proudest achievements in 2023 was the retention of the Investors in People Gold accreditation for the second time. This prestigious accolade reaffirms our commitment to our team, showcasing our dedication to creating an environment where policies come to life. With a remarkable improvement in our Gold score – from 772/900 in 2020 to 810/900 in 2023 – Fitzrovia stands tall among the top-tier Gold-accredited businesses in the IT and MSP realm. Our people-first approach has not only secured our place but elevated us as leaders in developing talent within our industry.

Investors in People Awards 2023: A Glimpse of Recognition
In November 2023, Fitzrovia was honoured by being shortlisted for the UK Employer of the Year: Gold Category (50-249 people) in the Investors in People Awards. Although we did not win on this occasion, the nomination itself was a source of immense pride, reflecting our dedication to being an exemplary employer.

Microsoft Accreditations – A Triumphant Hat-Trick
In the evolving landscape of Microsoft certifications, Fitzrovia IT ended 2023 with three Solution Partner Designations. We proudly wear the badges of Security Solution Partner, Azure Solution Partner, and Modern Work Solution Partner. This recognition underlines our commitment to professional training, ensuring that our team is equipped to provide optimal solutions for security, Modern Work, and Azure needs.

A Voice at Microsoft: Joining the Modern Work CSP Partner Council
Fitzrovia IT’s Technical Director, Anuj Mehta was honoured to be selected to join the prestigious Modern Work CSP Partner Council. Anuj represented us at the council summit in Redmond, Seattle, in November, where our voice was heard on strategic topics related to Microsoft 365. This opportunity not only allows us to influence product functionality but also plays a role in shaping market strategies.

Implementation of AI Services: Pioneering the Global AI Transformation
As part of the global AI transformation, Fitzrovia proudly implemented internal AI systems in 2023. These systems are poised to enhance services for our clients while providing knowledge and performance insights for our engineering team.
