Albert Goodman, a leading accountancy firm with six offices in the south west, decided staff needed cheering up during the pandemic. It organised a comedy night via Zoom in place of the annual outing.

Former 8 Out of 10 Cats comedian Jason Manford and friends entertained employees who were recovering from a busy month in January. They said they felt as though they had had an evening out.

The company was started by Albert Goodman in Taunton in 1866. Today, it has 275 employees in its Bristol, Weston-super-Mare, Taunton, Chard, Yeovil and Weymouth offices.

Its main focus is providing expert advice and an excellent service to clients in a range of areas, including tax, insolvency, financial planning and payroll. From the day they join the firm, employees are supported in training and development and are given the chance to pursue a varied and challenging career.

Albert Goodman prides itself on its costumer service and has won prestigious industry awards.

The company believes in the importance of giving something back to the community and each of its offices has chosen a local charity to support. Staff raise funds by staging events, from coffee runs to dress-down days.

A sustainability group was also set up this year. It has organised a “30 days to more sustainable ways” challenge across the firm, as well as a TerraCycle programme, which not only enables recycling but also gives back to local communities.
