While some staff were back on deck early in January after the Christmas and New Year period, others made the most of the summer weather and took the opportunity to take additional leave.
During the quarter we had staff visit Japan, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Sydney, and Melbourne.
Australia Day BBQ
Prior to the Australia Day long weekend, we had a sausage sizzle. It is always tough getting back into the swing of things after the Christmas and New Year break and you can’t go wrong with a sausage sizzle… unless you’re eating it like a politician.
International Women’s Day
To celebrate International Women’s Day 2023, our Partners gifted beautiful coffee and tea sets for staff.
This year’s theme was #EmbraceEquity. Equity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have.
A focus on gender equity needs to be part of every society’s DNA.
And it’s critical to understand the difference between equity and equality.
The aim of the IWD 2023 #EmbraceEquity campaign theme is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren’t enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action. Read more about this here.
Our Senior Accountant, Carrie Tsui and Accountant, Winnie Yip both celebrated their 5 year anniversaries with Accru Rawsons. Thank you to Carrie and Winnie for their commitment to the firm and we hope there are many more years to come.
In March we said goodbye to our Undergraduate Accountant, Kenken Uy who has made the decision to gain experience in Law. She was completing a dual degree in Accounting and Law so it was not unexpected however we had hoped we could convert her to our side of the fence and convince her Accounting is the place to be. We wish Kenken all the best for the future.
