Our Quality People
David Howard is a company focused on maintaining top quality, engaged and enthusiastic staff, with skills developed to help our clients needs as best we can. We use specialist Business Associates to make sure we have at our fingertips all the specialist skills our clients require, so advise on even the most technically complex matters is only a phone call or meeting away.
We believe that by investing in our staff, encouraging career development and responsibility we have excellent employee retention. This leads to a happy working environment and that with extra skills, continuity, depth of client knowledge and an enthusiastic approach to our work, we work more effectively with our clients. Throughout all roles we provide external courses as well as working hard at internal development in both technical and 'people skills' which matter to our clients. Three of our four Partners obtained their Accountancy qualification with the firm as well as four of our Managers.
We are proud of our status as an approved employer and training office for ACA, ACCA and AAT. As such it has been recognised that we follow best practice in the support and development of trainees. We have an experienced training principal and a structured training programme to ensure all trainees are fully supported in all aspects in obtaining the professional qualifications.
We believe that coming to work should be enjoyable. We expect our staff share a common enthusiasm and drive through their commitment and hard work, but we do this with a smile and enjoy every success that we and our clients attain.
We have for many years offered a commitment to flexible working. Our paperless office is one of the ways we have improved the efficiency of our business, but it has also helped us support staff through flexibility of hours and location. Flexible hours and home working have enabled us to help staff with responsibilities and commitments return to work, and balance family and other commitments as well as their work/life balance. We believe that this approach benefits our clients through the retention of quality and motivated staff. The ease of access of information makes communication efficient and clients benefit as we are quickly able to give answers and solutions. Our office is often staffed from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. and because flexible working senior staff are encouraged to access emails etc through a long day and will often respond outside normal working hours.
