Leading island accountancy practice PKF-FPM has scored another milestone success…. after being placed in the prestigious Sunday Times Top 100 Best Small Companies to Work for 2018.
PKF-FPM Accountants, currently employing 120 plus staff across six offices – 4 in Northern Ireland and 2 in the Republic of Ireland has established a reputation as one of the leading independent accountancy and business advisory firms operating on the island of Ireland.
Annually The Sunday Times assess and recognise the quality and popularity of companies to work for in the UK, across all sectors and industries. Now in its 18th year, the ‘Best Companies To Work For’ ranking celebrates the elite of Britain’s employers across four different categories: The 100 Best Companies, the 25 Best Big Companies, the 100 Best Small Companies and 100 Best Not-for Profit Organisations.
On average around 1,000 companies enter the Awards each year, making it widely acknowledged as the most comprehensive research into employee engagement across the UK.
Places in the rankings are determined by results of a extensive staff survey measuring seven key areas including Leadership; Personal Growth; Team; and Giving Something Back alongside a review of pay, benefits and work-life balance. Ranked 64th in the small-sized business category, PKF-FPM attained the maximum 3 Stars accreditation for ‘extraordinary’ levels of engagement. Indeed PKF-FPM were the only independent Northern Ireland firm to be recognised in their category.
