Around the Firm: April 2019 Update

Written on April 30, 2019

In the last month, our team has closed out tax season, announced service projects and made some headlines we’re pretty proud of. For a full recap of everything happening in and around Warren Averett, visit our news section, or check out our blog to see what our advisors have been working on.

Warren Averett Recognized as a Great Place to Work

Warren Averett’s Tampa office was recognized as one of the best places to work in Tampa! The Tampa Bay Times assembled a list of the top 100 workplaces in Tampa based on anonymous employee surveys, and Warren Averett’s Tampa office is proud to have made the list for the sixth time. You can see Warren Averett’s official rankings by the Tampa Bay Times here. We aren’t biased or anything, but we agree that Warren Averett is a pretty great place to work too.

Tax Season Goes Out with a Bang

Warren Averett’s employees across the Southeast celebrated the tax filing deadline on April 15th. The Firm’s Birmingham office hosted food trucks and games in the office parking lot, the Pensacola team converged at a local waterfront restaurant in the afternoon, the Huntsville office hosted a picnic at a local state park, and many other office locations hosted celebratory events and gatherings. Through this year’s tax season, Warren Averett assisted clients with thousands of tax filings, and the ever-increasing complexity of the tax law required almost 50% to file extensions! We were honored to have the opportunity to serve our clients for yet another tax season, and we are so proud of the great work our team put in to do so!

Corporate Challenge

Warren Averett’s Birmingham office participated in the Birmingham Corporate Challenge. In the Challenge, companies assemble their employees, as well as their friends and families, into teams to compete in events like tug of war, cornhole, bowling and rock climbing among many others. We know that this team fully represented all of Warren Averett’s corporate values, but we have no doubt that Passion to Win was represented the most!

Technology Group Hosts Team Building Event

Warren Averett Technology Group set aside time this month to invest in their skills, knowledge, relationships and connections by hosting a learning and team building event! The group converged in Montgomery and spent time discussing how to be more effective with our communication with our clients. Members of the Technology Group also gave presentations about their specific areas of expertise within the group so that each member of the team would be equipped with an informed and holistic understanding of the broad ways the group serves Warren Averett clients. After the meetings had concluded, Technology Group met at a pavilion in nearby Millbrook for a dinner and some friendly competition! The group was divided into teams for Minute to Win It themed games. Challenges included tossing candy into tins from a distance, using air from inflated balloons to blow plastic cups across a finish line and moving cookies from their foreheads to their mouths without using their hands! We are so glad this team had the chance to invest in improving the way we serve our clients, but we’re also glad they had fun while doing it!

 

Second Quarter Service Initiative Announced

One of Warren Averett’s core corporate values is Sharing Our Success, which means our team and our Firm strive to give back wherever we can. At the beginning of April, Warren Averett’s first quarter service initiative, “Winter Warmth from the Heart,” came to a close. Through this initiative, the Firm’s employees participated in winter service projects for their respective offices, mostly collecting clothing and supplies for community organizations. The Atlanta office collected baby items for Covenant House, the Huntsville office donated socks and shoes to Manna House, the Montgomery office collected items for Friendship Mission, and many of the Firm’s other locations also hosted drives and sent donations to local organizations.

April also marked the beginning of Warren Averett’s second quarter service initiative. In the coming spring months, Warren Averett’s office locations will focus on supporting organizations for cancer research. Offices across the Firm’s footprint will be organizing efforts to donate or even assemble teams to walk or run at local events! Our team is looking forward to supporting this cause in our communities this quarter.
