Accounting firms from across the country participated in the two-part survey process to determine their placement on Accounting Today’s Best Accounting Firms to Work For list. The first part—which comprised 25% of the evaluation—consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part—which comprised the remaining 75% of the evaluation—consisted of a survey to assess employees’ experience with their firms. Best Companies Group, which managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the final list rankings and placements by calculating the top firms’ combined scores.
“The firms on this list represent the best workplaces in the accounting profession,” said Accounting Today Editor-in-Chief Daniel Hood. “They are outstanding places to build a career.”
