A brightly coloured office decor reflects the culture at accountancy firm Carter Backer Winter, where staff are made to feel like family. Many have been with the firm for more than a decade and client retention is high.

The City of London-based firm of accountants and tax and business advisers spans a range of sectors. Clients include high net-worth individuals and entrepreneurs, as well as multinational companies. CBW was formed in 1983, after the merger of Backer Winter and Carter Poynter, both founded in 1957.

Today the company has 18 partners and more than 165 staff. CBW believes it is small enough to care about clients and their business, and big enough to support and help them achieve their dreams. it aims to be an employer of choice, which is reflected in its social media posts, Glassdoor reviews, flexibility, values and feedback.

CBW has incorporated an open approach within its culture, which is supported by the open-plan layout of the modern office space, where all of the CBW team, including partners, work. There are break-out areas for meetings or quiet working and the lunchroom is equipped with a television and foosball table.

The company believes that much of its success is down to the long-standing relationships that have been built over decades between the CBW team and its clients, and the investment the firm has made in developing its people so that there are no limits to the service offered.
