Employee Testing & Covid Precautions
In April 2021, Neuways introduced voluntary COVID-19 lateral flow tests into the business for staff. It allows employees to safely work in the office, safe in the knowledge they were neither carriers of the virus or at risk from their colleagues.
It is important to Neuways that all it’s staff, suppliers and visitors feel safe and confident as they enter the offices. Regular staff testing is just one of the measures Neuways has introduced to ensure anyone entering the building is as safe as possible. Masks, anti-bac stations, temperature checks, track and trace and increased cleaning are all in place at the Neuways offices to help reduce the risk of Covid-19.
Neuways is serious about leading the way with its environmental standards.
Our £1.2m Head Office in Chellaston, Derby, is fully equipped with solar panels that generate a large amount of our electricity. We also have a unified recycling culture, with recycling points placed strategically throughout our building.
As a business in the IT sector, Neuways has the opportunity to leverage technology to lower not only our own carbon footprint, but that of our supply chain too.
Through using online web-based technology for meetings and calls, we promote a paper-free workspace for our staff, while our support team is primed to make remote fixes wherever possible. This saves on petroleum use, but it also increases our productivity and allows us to service our customers more quickly and efficiently.
But it isn’t just Neuways that benefits from our environment-first ethos. The solutions we offer, including cloud computing, allow our customers to work greener, extending our impact across the country.

Neuways recognise just how important its people are – they make Neuways what it is today. We know to be the best, you need to invest in the best. That is why we are delighted to see our employees succeed in Microsoft examinations such as MS-100: Microsoft 365 Identity and Services, and MS-101: Microsoft 365 Mobility and Security exams. This continued dedication to improving our people and their ability to excel is a further commitment to our customers that we will continue to deliver the best services around.
Here at Neuways, we offer work experience for those with an interest in STEM career paths, as well as local school leavers to help them develop their employability skills. In 2021, our latest apprenticeship successes passed their courses with flying colours. Both have gone on to become fully fledged members of the Neuways team. We see apprenticeships as a key way to show our dedication to supporting the next generation as they look to begin their professional careers.
Not only are our employees the cream of the crop, but at Neuways we understand our role in supporting the local community of Chellaston. In 2020, we co-funded the installation of a defibrillator at our location at Neustro House. In the event of an emergency, employees of neighbouring businesses at Bradgate Park View, as well as local Chellaston residents will have access to the defibrillator.
Neuways understands the privileged position it is in and that there are lots of people in less fortunate positions. Our ethos is to support charities that can make a difference, with regular fundraising and activity aiming to raise significant funds.
We are proud to have worked with a number of fantastic charities over the years. Seasonal work with Save the Children for their ‘Christmas Jumper Day’ campaign, as well as donations replacing customer presents and cards saw plenty of monies raised.
And, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 saw Neuways staff and directors band together to raise the spirits of local people, through working alongside Chellaston-based foodbank, Springwater Charity. The foodbank are a community group who source surplus products from supermarkets and the Fareshare scheme, to help those in need. Neuways staff donated a variety of items, from toiletries to children’s toys and food parcels to winter clothing, to aid Springwater’s ability to help the local community.
