The HR and payroll software company Cascade has enjoyed phenomenal growth since it was established in 1994.

Cascade started out as a four-strong team based in Pudsey. Following 20 per cent annual growth for nine successive years, the tech brand was then acquired by IRIS Software Group in April 2014.

The move took the business to an organisation with collectively more than 1,000 employees.
