“We are extremely proud of our team for all the hard work they have done to make YHB one of the best accounting firms to work for in the United States,” said Scott Moulden, Managing Partner of YHB. “The internal changes the Firm has made over the last several years have been a calculated effort to create a culture that helps people flourish. The purpose was and remains to create value for our clients and staff. Ultimately, employees that feel appreciated, trusted, and are engaged are the type of people clients want to work with. They get the quality they deserve, and a unique experience other Firms can’t give, and that’s the value these initiatives provide.”
This survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the best employers in the accounting profession, benefiting its economy, workforce, and businesses. The list is made up of 100 firms from across the United States.
“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.”
Firms entered the two-part survey process to determine Accounting Today’s Best Accounting Firms to Work for. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This portion of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This portion of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data and determined the final ranking.
“Progressing from set hours and work schedules to year-round flex time, alternative work arrangements and the ability to work from anywhere, anytime, I think it’s safe to say we have come a long way,” said Neile Martin, YHB’s Human Resource Director. “Thanks to very intentional initiatives aimed at celebrating what’s great about our culture and working together to fix what’s broken, we have been able to retain some of the best talent in the industry. YHB has always believed our people are truly our number one asset and it is wonderful that they feel that’s true.”
