Blu Sky Rocket to Success for the Second Year Running
Winning the Independent Firm of the Year highlighted the exceptional 12 months of achievements, including launching their own forecasting and reporting product – Blu Prints, and becoming Xero Platinum partners. Blu Sky were delighted to accept the award, and thank their clients for the nominations.
Blu Sky differentiates themselves by provided bespoke packages to each client, looking after and supporting them through every aspect of the customer journey. In particular, relationships in the Tech and Creative sectors has encouraged a national reputation for delivering compliance, technical product support, management information and corporate finance support in a refreshingly unique manner.
Sam Wood, Lead Client Account Manager, commented that of the judging day, Blu Sky were the only ones to turn up in hoodies, which would either be the making or breaking of the session. The hoodies clearly paid off and are testament to the culture of Blu Sky – a no suits area, jeans and hoodies encouraged.
Blu Sky are committed to nurturing talent from within. They know that a healthy work/life balance is one of the best benefits a company can provide, so flexible working hours are a reality, as a hosted desktop solutions means the team can work from anywhere. An open plan office layout encourages collaboration for ideas and challenges. Combined with a flat management structure, this creates a strong culture of trust amongst the team, as does the office dress down policy and regular social events!
Last year, Blu Sky were crowned Small Accountancy Firm of the Year. Taking it a step further and being up against the likes of larger firms and still to win proves what the team said last year, that they still had work to do to get to where they want to be. 12 months later, and positive steps are being made; being recognised for those has boosted the team morale to an even higher state.
Of the Awards Evening, Co-founder, Dave Gibson said, “It was a very special night to cap a very special year. It was particularly pleasing to win for a second year in succession against a short list of high quality competition. The credit goes to a close knit team who have rolled their sleeves up and relentlessly attacked every challenge and opportunity with gusto.”
