The group has been nominated for the ‘Best Employer’ and the ‘Independent Firm of the Year’ categories at this year’s awards for the third year in a row.
The Yorkshire Accountancy Awards celebrates the “achievements” and “successes” from the region’s accountants, auditors and advisors across the Yorkshire region.
Reviewing the award entries for this year’s awards was an independent judging panel composed of accredited professionals who evaluated entries and shared a shortlist of finalists that “reflects the talent, commitment and dedication of the accountancy profession in the region”.
For the best employer category, finalists showcased training initiatives and accreditations received, “dedication” to development and welfare of staff, jobs created in the region and recognition from staff and training providers.
Entries for the independent firm of the year were asked to demonstrate client appreciation, client initiatives which “set them apart from competitors”, contribution to the business community and recognition from other firms.
Kevin Winterburn, director at Sheards, said: “We are over the moon to be shortlisted for not one but two awards at this year’s Yorkshire Accountancy Awards. This is the third year in a row we’ve been fortunate enough to shortlist in these categories and it’s a testament to the hard work of the entire team.
“Over the past 12 months, we’ve been committed to delivering important services to all of our clients, supporting them with the ongoing changes and business objectives.”
He added: “With the ongoing pandemic, the team have been on hand everyday to support clients with additional activities and take advantage of government support schemes within their industries.”
