I am delighted to announce that Sterling Finance (UK) Limited is a finalist for the Accountancy Excellence Awards 2022 for the category of Accounting Web’s “PRIDE”. This is the fourth consecutive finalist award as we were also nominated in 2019, 2020 and 2021. In the past, we were finalists in several categories.
The PRIDE category is very precious to us because our team has had to deal with not only the financial matters but also the bereavement and mental health issues faced by clients during the Covid-19 period. During the pandemic, our team continued to remain committed to dealing with many issues related to our clients who lost their livelihood and loved ones.
Since 2016 I have dedicated my efforts to raise awareness of mental health-related issues in the workplace. We have adopted several local mental health charity organisations and raised thousands of pounds worth of funds for these charities. In 2022, we hosted a dinner and invited Gerald Ratner former CEO of Ratner’s Group which was attended by local businesses and professionals and raised over £6,000 in donation for The Anthony Seddon Funds Charity which supports people who have been impacted by mental health and suicide.
Our mental health initiative will continue to grow and we have increased further financial commitments for the training, team building and mentoring activities.
Sterling Finance believes in family values and takes a genuine interest in every staff member which is aimed at improving the mental health and well-being of everyone in the team.
The award ceremony for Accounting Excellence 2022 will be held on Thursday 8th September 2022 in London.
