Price Bailey's Smart Working initiative came into its own during the pandemic – it puts the emphasis on working smarter, not harder, enabling staff to balance the peaks and troughs of their work and home lives.

Post-lockdown, the accountancy and business advisory firm is looking to introduce new working practices to accommodate a more flexible environment and culture.

Price Bailey was founded in 1938 with one office in Bishop's Stortford and a single partner. Today it has seven locations in London and East Anglia and 30 partners.

The managing director has, through choice, retained a client portfolio to ensure he maintains an understanding of how the firm's systems and procedures are working.

That's not to say Price Bailey's senior leaders take life too seriously. Some can be found with their heads and hands in stocks on charity day, facing a barrage of wet sponges.

The MD provided a weekly update for staff during lockdown, and they had added support from the resilience training provided by the firm through the charity CABA.

Price Bailey has a large number of trainee accountants, who are taken on as apprentices and at graduate level. Staff are encouraged to return to their old schools or universities to promote the firm. Recruitment assessments moved online during the pandemic to ensure a full complement of trainees this year.

The PB Inspires initiative works with local schools to develop the next generation of employees from disadvantaged backgrounds. It also develops the leadership skills of staff who take part.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

89% of staff agreed

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

Price Bailey added a circuit-breaker day to the Christmas holiday, giving staff extra time off in recognition of their commitment during the Covid-19 restrictions. The firm's IT systems were shut down to ensure everyone had a proper break from work.

Fair Deal

56% of staff agreed

I am paid fairly for the work I do relative to people in similar positions in similar organisations

All members of staff are invited to join the employee share scheme once they have completed 12 months' service with Price Bailey. The scheme gives them a stake in the success of the business and recognises the value of their contribution.

Giving Something Back

75% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

Price Bailey has a fleet of electric pool cars available to all employees when they need to travel between the firm's offices or to visit clients. There has been an enthusiastic take-up of hybrid company cars. The firm also has a cycle-to-work scheme.
