Having placed first in its sector in 8 of the 13 categories in the study - Quality of Products and Services; Ability to Attract; Develop & Retain Top Talent; Capacity to Innovate; Effective use of Corporate Assets; Inspirational Leadership; Competitiveness; Effective Corporate Governance; and Commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion – QinetiQ went on to take the overall sector award.

“This accolade is just recognition of their efforts, their diligence and their dedication to both customer delivery and business performance. I’m deeply proud of what we have all achieved together and how we are setting up for our next phase of growth.”
