Azets is celebrating after winning the hat trick at the Yorkshire Accountancy Awards.
The firm, which has offices in Leeds and York, recently announced ambitious growth plans and this latest accolade is a further boost for the firm that plans to take on over 100 new recruits over the next three years.
Azets won Best Employer of the Year, Audit Service Award and Team of the Year. It’s the second year running the firm has won Best Employer across the whole of the region. The firm’s Corporate Finance and Tax were also finalists for Tax Service of the Year and Corporate Finance Team of the Year.
In presenting the award, the judges commented on the firm being ‘a fantastic job creator’ in Yorkshire and praised its apprentice programme, focus on developing soft and technical skills and efforts to improve wellbeing as well as being an employer that works very hard to keep its staff, which ‘sets it apart from its competition’.
The judges also said: “Azets is gaining lots of new business and undergoing significant growth, all while achieving incredible rates of staff retention, serving clients to a high standard and investing in technology to complement its excellent audit service.”
Russell Turner, Regional Managing Partner at Azets in Yorkshire said:
“To win three awards against such tough competition is truly amazing and it reflects the quality of people we have in Yorkshire and the importance we place on our people. Our team are brilliant at what they do, genuinely care and that's what makes Azets stand out from the crowd. I’d like to thank them all.”
“The way people prefer to work has significantly changed over the last 2 years and continues to do so. Staff want flexibility on how and where they work. At Azets, this is seen as an opportunity to attract, retain and develop the best people which, in turn, will ensure our clients receive excellent service from a team that genuinely cares. We believe we create an energising and rewarding place to work and our culture is focused on the ethos that our people matter. There has never been a better time to join Azets and be part of an ambitious and forward-thinking team.”
