Healthcare specialist scoops top business accolade

WARRINGTON-based preven-tative healthcare specialist, PAM Group, has scooped a special Business of the Year Award for companies with turnover of £25m-£40m.

The award was presented to chief executive James Murphy and his team at a ceremony held at the Kimpton Clocktower Hotel in Manchester, hosted by broadcaster Nicholas Owen.

James said: “It was a huge honour to have been nominated alongside some fantastic and successful businesses.

“To have won is a great achievement and recognises the hard work put in by all our team to make PAM Group the success it is.

“I am so proud of the 650 colleagues who have built and delivered such an amazing business for our clients and their employees, and one that provides us all with long-term, secure jobs.

“We are immensely proud to be based in the north west and continue to invest and create employment opportunities across the region, and beyond.”

PAM Group is one of the largest occupational health, employee assistance programme and wellbeing providers in the UK. It offers a range of integrated services to public and private sector clients, supporting more than one million employees at over 1,000 businesses and organisations.

The group’s services include absence management, physiotherapy, employee assistance programmes, psychological support, corporate health assessments and neurodiversity assessments, drug and alcohol screening.

It also has a retail arm which supplies fitness, exercise and rehabilitation equipment to consumers, sports clubs and sports and physiotherapy professionals.

PAM is looking to double turnover to £80m over the next few years through continued organic growth and acquisitions. Last year the company received backing from private equity firm LDC to support its growth and the launch of new products and services.

The group has seen revenues surge from £29m in 2020 to £40m in 2021. The pandemic has brought the issue of employee health and wellbeing into sharp focus, leading to an expanded customer base alongside the introduction of new services.

Over the past 12 months PAM has undertaken a multi-million pound investment in a new warehouse and office complex, made a number of key senior appointments and created dozens of jobs.
Last month, PAM unveiled a social value plan outlining a range of measures to help its staff, clients, stakeholders and communities to live better, healthier and happier lives.

The blueprint includes giving staff 1.5 days’ paid leave each year to volunteer with local organisations, a new charity fund giving employees the opportunity to nominate their chosen good causes for grants, a pledge to support apprenticeships and work placements, sustainability policies and the expansion of its staff learning academy.
