PKF International is delighted to congratulate their member firm PKF-FPM Accountants who won the Accountancy Age Top UK Accountancy Employer Award at the British Accountancy Awards.
The 2015 Best Employer Award sought to identify and recognise the best accountancy practice to work for in the UK. The project was a joint effort between Accountancy Age and the Best Companies Group.
Over the past six months, Employer and Employee surveys were completed, with participating firms being judged on their working environment, training, remuneration and employee benefits package.
On receiving the award on behalf of PKF-FPM, PKF-FPM Founder and Managing Director, Feargal McCormack stated that he was “humbled by the recognition of the PKF-FPM practice as the Best Employer in the UK but greatly honoured, to accept the premier Accountancy Award on behalf of TEAM PKF-FPM”. He added, “it was hard to believe that a practice which started as a one man business in Newry on 19 August 1991 (over 24 years ago) had now grown to be one of the leading accountancy and business consultancy practices operating on the island of Ireland, and globally as part of PKF International network family”.
Feargal stated that, “PKF-FPM has been successful in managing talent and developing and building a strong integrated client focused business team, to ensure excellence in service delivery, with priority given to collaboration, communications, innovation and creative thinking. Multi-disciplined teams are utilised at all levels, involving input from trainees to Directors. Within PKF-FPM significant emphasis is placed on shared responsibility, internal communications and continuous improvement”.
Winning the Accountancy Age Top UK Accountancy Employer Award 2015 will hopefully enable PKF-FPM to continue to attract, develop and reward the very best talent to ensure our business and our clients’ future success”.
Feargal was joined at the presentation ceremony by a cross section of members of TEAM PKF-FPM.
PKF International CEO John Sim commented, “Having just returned from a most enjoyable visit to meet TEAM PKF-FPM at their offices in Belfast and Newry it is easy to understand why the firm won this award. PKF’s current focus is to be known globally as a great place to work and we are building on PKF-FPMs experience and rolling it out globally”
Francois Duhau the Chairman of PKF EMEI Region said, “this award will come as no surprise to anyone who attended Feargal’s presentation at our 2015 EMEI regional conference in Dublin earlier this year.”
