Last chance to enter Practice Excellence awards

Today is your last chance to enter AccountingWEB's inaugural Practice Excellence Awards 2011.

All entrants will get a benchmark report on their performance against UK averages - giving you the chance to measure your firm against the best.

The awards have aroused a lot of interest among AccountingWEB members, including a good response from attendees at the AVN conference two weeks ago.

Firms that have already entered the awards said that the most compelling aspect of the awards was the benchmark report that each entrant would receive.

As well as getting a chance to pitch your practice, you will also get a fully personalised report assessing how your compares to the rest of the profession.

Steve McKibbin, digital manager at Sift Media and co-ordinator of the awards, said that the statistical analysis was what set the Practice Excellence Awards apart.

“People have been very keen so far to enter the awards, but equally, they want to get their hands on the benchmark report. What’s going to be fascinating about these awards is the outcome of this survey and the statistical comparisons,” he said.

The awards team is pleased with the response so far, but are looking for an even bigger sample base for the benchmark report to have the biggest impact.

McKibbin added: “We’ve had a great response, but quite frankly we want tonnes more!”

The new entry deadline for the awards is 15 July 2011. Find out more from the Practice Excellence Awards website.
