Employee Benefits for Accountants

Small, medium and large firms

Employee benefits & wellbeing are key for the accounting industry. Here’s why.

Accountancy firms are operating in an increasingly challenging industry. Adapting and quickly evolving the workplace is fundamental to maintaining a strong, focused and flexible workforce.

Last year many firms were impacted by ‘the great resignation’ where many accountancy professionals at all stages of their career unexpectedly quit and moved to pastures new, leaving firm owners struggling with what to do. 

The focus for many firms is now on retaining staff and tackling turnover and with more than 35% of millennials expecting to leave their current role in the next 18 months, it’s an important focus.

Employee benefits play a crucial role in your recruitment and retention strategies. They say a lot about who you are as a firm. They can set you apart from the crowd and can grab the attention of the top talent out there.

Our specialist team understand the accountancy sector, the current challenges and are ready to help you build a benefits & wellbeing programme to meet your specific needs. As your trusted adviser, we can remove the hassle of searching the market by providing great benefit solutions that are right for your business, your people and your budget.
