Accountancy firms among UK's best employers

Three accountancy firms have been named as one of the hundred best companies to work for in the UK.

Deloitte and Touche (number 79), KPMG (number 82) and Ernst & Young (number 87)were named on the Sunday Times list, which was headed by supermarket Asda.

The firms did best on work/life balance issues where both E&Y and KPMG were named in the top ten for companies in this category. Some 79% of employees of both Ernst & Young and KPMG say they are encouraged to balance work with personal life.

Fairness also helped: 72% of E&Y employees said promotions went to the most deserving, earning the firm a place in the fairest promotions top ten.

However both E&Y and Deloittes have plunged from top 40 places in last year’s poll.

Accenture, formerly Andersen Consulting, is also ont he list at number 74.
