Pillow May is very proud to announce that we are one of the first accounting firms in the UK to commit to making our world an even better place publicly.
We decided after our fantastic trip to Cambodia and in light of recent events that we wanted to work with our clients in a brand-new way. So, we joined a worldwide group of accountants committed to working together to build a better future for everyone. A staggering 207 million worldwide giving impacts have already been created by companies associated with Accountants for Good.
Through the pandemic, we have seen some exciting things happen. Still, the thing that stood out for us was the remarkably different outcomes for those clients with whom we’d been working closely BEFORE the pandemic hit and those where the relationship was just about doing what had to be done from a regulatory point of view.
We saw clearly that those clients committed to leading their businesses in a different ‘purposeful’ way and using us to help them do that are now building even better sustainable companies coming out of Covid-19. So, we want to help every business client define their purpose, with the help of the Sustainable Development Goals — 17 very specific things that the UN has identified as needed by 2030 to create an even better world.
Paul Dunn, the Founder of Accountants for Good, expresses it this way: “The Global Goals are a ‘must achieve’ thing, the most important thing about them is it’s NOT Governments signing off on agreements that do it, it’s businesses that make it happen. It’s already clear that purpose-driven companies make more money, have more engaged employees, more loyal customers and are better at innovation and transformational change.
Pillow May aims to involve its entire community in the initiative. As Accountants for Good, we’re looking forward to giving both new and existing clients a new sense of purpose and connection, helping them differentiate themselves in their markets, impacting their families, their communities and our world.
