The company received their first Queens Award for International Trade in April 2005 and will receive their second award in 2014 for Sustainable Development at a ceremony in London in July.

Bro McFerran, Managing Director, Allstate Northern Ireland said:

"Winning the Queen's Award is a huge accolade for Allstate. We operate in the global arena not just in Northern Ireland so winning an award of this stature further endorses the quality of work and the talent that is on offer here. We are thrilled to be rewarded for our continuous efforts in looking after our people, our community and our environment."

US-owned Allstate Northern Ireland was established in Belfast in 1998 and has grown to over 2,200 employees in a relatively short time to become Northern Ireland's largest IT company. It provides high quality software development services and high end business solutions in support of its US parent's operations, the Allstate Corporation, the largest publicly held personal lines property and casualty insurer in America.

On average only 10 companies each year have received the Queen's Award for Sustainable Development and Allstate NI is delighted to have received this award for outstanding business achievement. Winners of The Queen's Awards can expect an invitation to attend a special reception at Buckingham Palace. They can also use The Queen's Award Emblem in advertising, marketing and on packaging for a period of five years as a symbol of their quality and success.

Rose Kelly, Vice President & Chief Administration Officer said:

"Allstate NI is privileged to have won this most prestigious award which is a wonderful endorsement of the excellence of our practices in Human Resources and people management which ensures a better quality of work-life for everyone. It is also a tribute to the hundreds of employee volunteers who have worked with us over the years to create significant and sustainable improvements in the local communities where we live and work."

The awards are made annually by HM The Queen and are only given for the highest level of excellence demonstrated in each category. To find out more about next year's awards visit www.queensawards.org.uk.
