Kingston Smith wins another gold star for its staff-centric approach

Kingston Smith is delighted to be named Employer of the Year at the Reigate & Banstead Business Awards. Following the firm’s recent win at the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards also for Employer of the Year, it is a great accolade for the top 20 accountancy firm to be twice considered best employer by the local business community.

Kingston Smith is becoming recognised for its employee focus, including such aspects as its award-winning innovation, above-average exam pass rates, staff wellbeing initiatives, charity fundraising and agile working practices.

Paul Samrah, partner at Kingston Smith’s Redhill office, said: “We’re honoured to have won Employer of the Year at Reigate & Banstead Business Awards, and so soon after the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards. It’s important to us that Kingston Smith is a great place to work. Our people work hard for our clients and we want to acknowledge that.”

Judges from the Surrey Chamber of Commerce said: “Kingston Smith has managed to re-create itself as a modern employer with clear values. They allow everyone to be the very best they can and the commitment is clear from the top of the company. […] their flexibility examples show they are serious about keeping their employees and listening to them.”
