We are providing a premium service for clients – but we make sure that this is without compromising our principles – something we’re deeply passionate about. We are an award-winning firm, but alongside awards recognising the work we do for our clients, we are also immensely proud to have been named Best Employer in Tax at the Tolley’s Taxation Awards 2022 and Employer of the Year at the 2023 Yorkshire Accountancy Awards. So whilst we look after our clients well, we know that we are also looking after our team.
Because personal time is valuable for every team member at all levels and is fundamentally important to personal well-being, we do not expect any of our team to work more than the basic weekly hours. And we do monitor this, with
- HR Dashboards report on overtime statistics. The current average of just below 1hr per person per month is well below the industry average
- management lead by example and do not work overtime
- partners often chat to the team before leaving at the end of the day to ensure nobody is feeling under pressure to stay late
- conversations will be held with anyone posting overtime to discuss the situation and determine whether workload can be reallocated etc.
