Allan Hall Business Advisors wins Wellness Program of the Year at Australian Accounting Awards
AccountantsDaily announced the Australian Accounting Awards winners at the ninth gala event in Sydney. In a record field of 652 submissions and 297 finalists in 2022, Allan Hall Business Advisors took out one of only 14 National Group awards, winning the Wellness Program of the Year.
Demonstrating how employee initiatives enrich the understanding and importance of wellness among Australia’s accounting industry was key to being acknowledged in this award category.
Allan Hall has been actively advocating health and wellness initiatives, events and activities within the business and wider community for many years, recognising that the key to success is not only supporting clients but also the people within.
This made the award win a very special one as it provides industry recognition of the emphasis the firm places on its employees and their wellbeing.
Accepting the award, Allan Hall HR Director, Janelle Parish said, “To win this particular award would be special at any time but we are extremely proud to have won it this year, to be recognised nationally for our support of staff with our wellness initiatives over such a challenging period.”
“Our firm has a fabulous, collaborative culture with Directors and Managers who are all very supportive of employee wellbeing and any wellness initiatives put forward.”
“Promoting health and wellbeing has been an essential aspect of our HR management through our ‘Thrive’ wellbeing program which follows four pillars of mind, body, spirit and work culture. Our Thrive wellbeing committee was able to adjust our approach over the past 12 months to the challenging COVID-19 climate to ensure our employees’ physical and mental wellbeing remained a major focus.”
The Australian Accounting Awards are known as the benchmark for excellence nationally as they focus on professional development and innovation, and recognise the successes of accountants, bookkeepers, partners, superannuation specialists, thought leaders, executives, as well as rising stars of tomorrow.
In his opening address, Accountants Daily editor Philip King said the Australian Accountants Awards offer a moment to pause and honour the best of the best in the profession. View the full list of winners here »
