But how do they manage all these? That’s probably the question that everyone asks themselves. Well, the secret lies in their dedicated staff. The staff of the company, as well as the management team, are well trained, well paid, and there is a constant education on best practices in the market. The founders believe that for the client to be satisfied, you have to fulfill the employee first. That’s why the Sussex fraternity treats both clients and management as one big family.
