PKF Francis Clark is officially one of UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellbeing

PKF Francis Clark has officially been named one of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing (2023) by Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture.

The accountancy firm, which has more than 850 employees and 55 partners in Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth, Poole, Salisbury, Southampton, Taunton, Torquay and Truro, is ranked 40th among large organisations in the newly published list of Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing.

Initiatives to promote colleague wellbeing at PKF Francis Clark include Wellbeing Wednesdays, an ongoing programme of events and resources focusing on physical, mental and financial wellbeing, such as webinars with sports psychologists, dieticians and other experts. The firm also has a menopause support group, as well as health and wellbeing champions and mental health first aiders in each office.

Great Place to Work’s culture experts analysed thousands of employee surveys, assessing people’s holistic experiences of wellbeing at work to determine the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list. The surveys asked employees to comment on how their company supports their work-life balance, sense of fulfilment, job satisfaction, psychological safety and financial security. Evaluations also included an assessment of how well the organisation was able to deliver consistency of their employee experience across all departments and seniority levels.

The accolade comes after PKF Francis Clark achieved Great Place to Work certification in September last year.

Amy Taylor, chief people officer, said: “Health and wellbeing is hugely important to us, so we’re very proud to be recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces for Wellbeing. We’ve invested in lots of initiatives to support the wellbeing of our people – like our Wellbeing Wednesdays and a comprehensive package of benefits, including free access to confidential counselling and an online GP service – and we’re actively looking at what more we can do.

“I’d also like to thank our network of health and wellbeing champions, mental health first aiders and local office charity, social and wellbeing committees, who play an important role in providing peer-to-peer support for colleague wellbeing.”

Benedict Gautrey, managing director of Great Place to Work® UK, said: “At the heart of every organisation are its people and looking after their wellbeing should be much more than a package of impressive perks on a careers website.

“We know when employees feel genuinely contented and at ease within their roles, they are much more engaged and productive. Now in our second year of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Wellbeing list, we’re once again able to showcase the leading organisations providing cultures conducive to outstanding psychological, physical and social wellbeing. A huge congratulations to PKF Francis Clark for making this prestigious list.”
