Employee benefits can be an excellent tool when it comes to recruiting and retaining staff, writes Georgiana Head
It is funny the things that tie people to a firm or in-house tax team. I will always remember my first client visit when I moved into recruitment. I went to see the then accountancy practice Littlejohn Frazer in their old office in the Docklands. I was struck by what a lovely office it was, because it had a fish pond in the reception and a duck island moored outside on the river, which you could see from the office windows. I remember thinking very clearly that if I had known firms like that existed, I might not have left a career in tax.
