Growing accountancy firm boosts its staff benefits offer

Sponsored Article

A THRIVING firm of chartered accountants has enhanced its comprehensive staff benefits package to attract even more of its industry’s brightest talents.

Rushden-based Elsby & Co celebrated its 30th anniversary last year and is systematically growing its award-winning team.

The firm is already accredited as a Living Wage Employer and by the Good Business Charter which celebrates organisations that are committed to the highest standards in relation to things like wages, fairer hours, employee wellbeing and diversity and inclusion.

It has now also extended its staff benefits package and has delivered a range of initiatives focussed on mindfulness and its staff’s wellbeing this year.

Partner Leona Bateman said: “Growth is only possible if you have the right people to drive it which is why we’ve created a culture and reward structure that enables our staff to thrive.

“In recent months, we’ve enhanced our staff benefits package so we offer significantly more than many of our peers.

“Our extensive package includes support with studying, health, wellbeing and environmental benefits, retail discounts and rewards and recognition for hard work.

“We’re also keen to help our staff with things that are important to them. In the past we have rewarded a team member with extra holiday and the flight cost for long service so they could visit family abroad.

“In addition, we offer flexible working options to enable people like parents who are returning to work the opportunity to have great career prospects.”

Highlights of Elsby & Co’s benefits package include an ACCA gold accredited study support package for trainees which features a range of support for Elsby apprentices, including ringfenced learning time, structured learning, flexible access to courses, support from a mentor and a recognised qualification at the end of the programme.

It also offers a community support scheme, an electric car company car scheme for managers, a bonus scheme, a long service holiday award and the firm is part of a benefits scheme which provides staff with discounts via an app to a range of supermarkets, department stores, cinemas and popular restaurants and bars.

Its health and wellbeing package includes access to a free GP 24/7 service and a confidential Employee Assistance Programme.

This year it launched Mindful May and gave every employee either the choice of an hour off to do something for themselves – such as an exercise class or a walk with a friend – or up to £100 to spend on a wellness activity.

During the summer it also organised an Employee Team Building Day at The Falcon at Castle Ashby, which included a wellness session, team building activities and the chance to take part in an open water swim, a yoga session or a hike.
