ACCOUNTANCY AGE is delighted to reveal the top ten firms from our 2014 Best Employer Survey.
The 2014 Accountancy Age – Best Employer Survey has set out to identify and flag up the best firms to work for in the UK. The project is a joint effort between Accountancy Age and Best Companies Group.
Employer and employee surveys were completed, with the firms being judged on their working environment, training, remuneration and employee benefits packages. The highest-ranked practice will be revealed at the British Accountancy Awards on 25 November at The Brewery.
Kevin Reed, editor, Accountancy Age, said: “I’m delighted that our Best Employer Survey has again proved popular, with new names on the shortlist for 2014. The best modern practices recognise that their people are their best asset. Embracing new ways of working, rewarding and motivating staff are vital to survive and thrive in such a tough market.
“These practices have made their way into the top ten from a long list of participants, and should be proud of their achievement.”
