The best performing accounting firms are powered by Everperform

With the current headwinds that many accounting firms are facing, namely finding high quality and capable talent, burnout and stress levels of existing talent, and strong demand for client work, the time to shift the strategic and performance mindset for what the firm needs to look like is now.

We see this as a wonderful opportunity to leverage the people that already exist within each firm and enable them to achieve their performance expectations, sustainably.

Everperform focuses in on the major indicators of improved performance, proven from analysing billions of data points over the past eight years, and scenario-testing potential solutions to ensure what is actioned – works. Our findings show that just five indicators drive most results that clients of Everperform experience.

Most accounting firms overlook these indicators, leading to an industry-wide under-performance averaging 86% (FY23-FY24 survey results).

Individuals within the accounting industry fail to meet their performance objectives.

Accounting firms that measure employee engagement and take the required steps as a result of those measures.


Optimised Time

Accounting firms who optimise their time and effort (or know how to).



Accounting firms who provide performance clarity to their team members.

Improvement in equity partner profit growth year-on-year.

Less than 11.9% of accounting firms measure the impact of investment in their people.

Accounting firms invest more in their people than ever before. Salary increases, performance-based incentives, the provision of a diversity of career pathways, health & well-being initiatives, and flexible working options and on the increase as much as 50% when compared to 2019 (based on client and industry payroll and financial datasets from 2019 - 2024.

This is all required in a world where the team expects and demands excellence from management. Yet if management is not measuring what they are receiving for their investment, then how do they know they are getting excellence in return?

Turn your data into performance

Most accounting firms collect data across multiple platforms, yet in every single case where the Everperform team has been invited in, the data has not been utilised to ensure a return on investment in the people they employ.

To be blunt, if nothing is happening with the data other than it being collected, it’s a waste of effort and resources. The purpose of data is what it tells us so we can act in more effective ways, driving performance, and improving profits.

Everperform clients receive useful data in realtime, accompanied by personalised insights to help individuals, managers and firms improve their performance in a sustainable way.
