Reinvention and resilience: RSK features in Forbes Top 50 Report

December 04, 2020

RSK has been placed in Forbes Solicitors’ inaugural Reinvention and Resilience Top 50, an insightful report featuring North West businesses that have innovated and diversified during the coronavirus pandemic.

Forbes Chief Executive Officer, Oliver Burton, introduced the report and said, “A successful leader is one who has the ability to step outside of their comfort zone and adopt new ways of working that meets the needs of the business there and then. That’s exactly what the leaders of these 50 companies have done. The region has responded with the passion, personality and determination that sets us apart from others.”

Despite the significant and obvious business challenges of 2020, there have been some positive business developments in the North West, Forbes reports: “Research by O2 Business suggests that almost 200,000 companies were incorporated with Companies House since the country went into lockdown back in March to the end of June, with 4,014 new companies being registered in Manchester alone – the UK’s highest figure per population.”

RSK features on page 18: “RSK Group has always been a company with an eye for acquisitions and the onset of a global pandemic has not deterred from its wider aims. In fact, in 2020, RSK has continued to strengthen and diversify its services with nine strategic business acquisitions, including an Austrian environmental consultancy and a serious entry into the water sector with the acquisition of Irish water business Nicholas O’Dwyer and WRc, previously known as Water Research Centre, the UK’s leading centre for water research.”

RSK’s decontamination services are cited as an example of the business adapting in light of the public health crisis.

RSK global director, David Taylor is also quoted, outlining RSK’s approach over the last few months: “While we’ve not necessarily reinvented our business during lockdown, what we have done is made sure we are flexible and could move with changes in demand… It’s been quite different across the businesses and it’s that diversification which has enabled us to continue strongly despite the pandemic.”

The article furthermore alludes to RSK’s funding from Ares Management Corporation and points out that funding has actually increased since the start of the pandemic. This funding will allow RSK to continue its growth plans, with more acquisitions planned for the near future.

“Coronavirus, or no coronavirus, the foot is certainly not coming off the gas at RSK. With an unerring culture – one that is focused on nurturing and supporting its people – the company has not been thwarted by the global pandemic and continues to remain faithful to the approach that has delivered significant success for many years.”
