​Behind the scenes at Farnell Clarke

Posted 01/06/2020 by Amy Patterson

You may have seen our recent blog all about what we're doing for our clients through these crazy times but we've also been doing a lot behind the scenes with our team. Below are just some of the things we've been up to.

Weekly catch up

Every Friday the whole firm catches up on zoom and it’s really great to see everyone’s faces! Our office hosts a great atmosphere, and everyone is missing that.

Friday afternoon quiz

Staff are taking it in turns every Friday to host the weekly quiz. We’ve had all sorts of themes from Disney to music. It’s a great way to end the working week and start the weekend on a positive.

Weekly wellness sessions

Our client Catherine from Cup-O-T has provided fantastic online sessions focusing on wellbeing such as relaxation, sleep techniques as well as desk yoga. Getting together virtually each week to focus on these subjects has been really well received by the team.

Communication

We’ve used Slack within the company for over a year now and it’s been a vital piece of software throughout these times. Keeping in regular contact with everyone on a daily basis has helped us all continue to work as a team.

Lobbying

Our founder and director Will Farnell has been battling at government level with the ACCA pushing to bring urgent change and reform to help businesses before it is too late. Will was invited to join a conference call with Paul Sculley MP, the Minster for Small Business. The call consisted of representatives from the ACCA and ICAEW (UK accountancy bodies), the British Chambers of Commerce and the Institute of Directors (IoD).

We're constantly updating the way the we work to ensure that our staff are coping while working from home. We recently included some light hearted entertainment by adding a daily Through the Keyhole of the team's beautiful houses.

Don't forget to check out what we're doing for our clients too. If you need some help and support at the moment then please book a phone/zoom call with Rebecca, she’d love to hear from you! Our team are hear to help you.
