Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), one of the UK’s leading firms of Chartered Accountants & Business Advisors, has this year been a Best Company for eleven consecutive years, and has also secured a place on The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies To Work For List for three consecutive years.
Both the two-star Best Company award and securing the position of number 39 on The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies To Work For List have been achieved as a result of feedback from AAB employee’s responses to the Best Companies engagement survey, which examines the ins-and-outs of company life and reveals how employees really perceive their work environment.
AAB had an incredible response rate to the survey, which could be a result of the numerous ways in which the firm engages with its employees, as well as the exciting changes and developments which have occurred in the last twelve months. 2017 was an extremely busy year for AAB with a number of new service lines introduced, exciting growth being achieved in dedicated sector teams including E&P, Food & Drink and Healthcare, in addition to the firm expanding its global reach, resulting in new and exciting opportunities for the team. As well as this The Anderson Anderson & Brown Charitable Initiative (AABi) has had a huge role to play in employee engagement at AAB, with an incredible amount of fundraising activities happening across the firm and a direct result of those activities meaning AABi was able to donate over £70,000 of grants to over 45 different charities and causes. In addition, AABi has also donated over 1,250 hours of volunteering time to numerous charities across the City and Shire, including AAB staff being involved in 10 different education/mentoring programmes. Through AABi, the firm also gives local charities the opportunity to be the firms’ “charity of the month” and raise awareness of their projects to AAB staff and visitors, as well as host learning sessions at AAB’s offices, for staff to attend.
Graeme Allan, Managing Partner at AAB said “This is a fantastic achievement for everyone at our firm. We recognise that exceptional people are our greatest asset and strive to ensure that our employees are engaged, motivated, committed and ultimately empowered to be the best they can be.
