Yorkshire and North Derbyshire’s largest independent firm of Chartered Accountants, BHP, has been named in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the second year running.

Increasing their position by 16 places, BHP was ranked number 84 on the 2020 list which marked the 20th year of the survey that recognises the very best in employee engagement across the UK.

Based on staff feedback, BHP introduced a range of new initiatives that included staff wellness days, physio support, time to talk days, a wellbeing channel, water bottles to encourage reduction in single use plastics and a paid for volunteering day for all staff.

Lisa Leighton, Joint Managing Partner at BHP, said: “Everyone at BHP is exceptionally proud to have climbed the rankings in one of the most respected employee engagement rankings in the UK.

“By listening and supporting our staff, we have been able to make continuous improvements throughout the year to ensure that the needs of our staff are exceeded.”

Lisa continued: “It has been great to see the implementation of the new initiatives and how everyone at BHP has benefitted from them. The staff wellness days have been well received and many of the team used their volunteer day to support environmental based charities.

“We are continuously looking to attract new talent, especially well-rounded individuals who have the potential to grow and flourish here at BHP. We would encourage anyone thinking of taking the next step in their career to get in touch.”

BHP has over 300 staff, including 37 partners. Over the last 10 years the business has increased turnover from £8m to over £22m.

Representatives from BHP including Joint Managing Partners, Lisa Leighton and Hamish Morrison accepted the award at a ceremony held in London on 21 February at Battersea Evolution.

The Sunday Times Top 100 ranks Britain’s best companies to work for based on several criteria around staff satisfaction. A robust workforce survey includes 70 statements about staff wellbeing, pay and benefits, personal growth, the team, and company leadership. This results in each company receiving a Best Companies Index (BCI) score, and potential accreditation ranging from ‘Ones to Watch’ right through to ‘3 Star’ status.
