Accountants could be Britain's best boss

KPMG and Blick Rothenberg bosses make the shortlist

Bosses are not necessarily the most appreciated people in the world but it
seems a couple of accountants have turned that belief on its head.

Bob Rothenberg of Blick Rothenberg and Robert Li, a director at KPMG, have
both been shortlisted for the post of Britain’s Best Boss, run by work-life
balance charity Working Families and sponsored by BT.

Bob Rothenberg said: “If you have a contented workforce with a good work-life
balance, they will work more efficiently, feel confident to give that little bit
more and will deliver a better quality service to clients. This results in
happier clients who are more likely to give us repeat business. So I feel there
are real economic benefits to the business from ensuring people feel content and
looked after.”

Robert Li said: “I have encouraged each and every member of my team to
consider whether they would like to avail themselves of the numerous flexible
working schemes that are on offer at KPMG. I treat each team member as an
individual and not as part of a large corporate machine, and I think flexible
working is one of the most important things you can do for people.”

The winners will be announced at an event on 26 November.
