PrimeGlobal is proud to announce that it has been selected as a finalist for the Association of the year, Rising Star Association of the year, and Sustainable Organization of the year by the International Accounting Bulletin Digital Accountancy Awards.
2019/20 has been a remarkable year, with PrimeGlobal achieving record size and coverage. PrimeGlobal’s culture, diversity and reach strengthened – adding 24 new member firms and introducing a new governance model, innovative tools, impactful thought leadership and extensive member support during the pandemic. Being selected as finalists for three separate awards is recognition of PrimeGlobal and member firms’ collective effort to support business when they needed it most.
“I am proud that PrimeGlobal has been selected as a finalist for the IAB Digital Accountancy Awards. During this challenging and unprecedented time, PrimeGlobal and its members have taken positive and active steps to improve digital engagement, offer new learning opportunities and provide an extensive program of virtual events. It is wonderful to be recognised for the effort, focus and dedication PrimeGlobal and our member firms have shown over the past year." Steve Heathcote, PrimeGlobal’s Chief Executive
This year, PrimeGlobal launched an initiative to globally coordinate its technology, business opportunities and talent development efforts and opportunities for members. As the accounting profession is changing and new technologies, service lines and business opportunities are challenging the way we do business, PrimeGlobal launched PrimeGlobal Insights to serve as a global resource and innovation hub for driving change and identifying opportunities for member firms.
PrimeGlobal was also proud to partner with Thomson Reuters, launching a multi-year global partnership hosting a series of events and thought leadership on diversity and women's leadership. This partnership increased awareness and inclusivity, while influencing the profession with education on unconscious bias and gender discrepancies. PrimeGlobal also partnered with ACCA to work together on several projects including professional research and insights, learning and development.
PrimeGlobal is passionate about promoting sustainability (environment, diversity and supporting communities) through our staff, member firms and wider stakeholders. PrimeGlobal has continued the proud tradition of creating sustainable events through the PrimeGlobal Planet initiative by reducing the carbon footprint of PrimeGlobal events. Through Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, PrimeGlobal continues to support local communities, giving back to the most vulnerable people in society.
"At PrimeGlobal we strive to create events that leave a positive, lasting effect on local communities. Through the PrimeGlobal Planet initiative we are not only reducing the carbon footprint of our events, but making sure that everything from transport to food is responsibly sourced. We look forward to continuing with this initiative on all PrimeGlobal events." Stacey Sanchez, PrimeGlobal's Executive Director Events
The IAB Digital Accountancy Forum and Awards are the industry’s premiere awards program, recognizing both rising stars and established leaders among the institutions who make up the global accountancy profession. The judging panel will recognize excellence in accounting and commemorate the achievements of the past year from accounting firms and solution providers as well as identifying the outstanding individuals in accountancy.
An astonishing 170 firms have been PrimeGlobal members for over a decade. The loyalty and engagement of PrimeGlobal members is at unprecedented high levels. The unique and awarded PrimeGlobal culture is clearly demonstrated this year, with focus on clients, teams and the greater good of the profession. An award would be a recognition of PrimeGlobal and member firms’ collective effort to support business when they needed it most.
