“We’re thrilled to receive this honor for the fifth year in a row,” said David Mandrycky, Director of Human Resources at Insero. “We owe many thanks to our entire team for upholding our focus on our people and building an environment where people are fulfilled and excited to come to work each day. Because of this focus, our reputation across the state has grown, employee turnover rate is well below the industry average and we are an employer of choice on the college campuses. That, in turn, benefits our clients, who appreciate being able to work with the best people. It’s truly a win-win.”

This survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best 100 employers in the accounting industry, benefiting the industry’s economy, workforce and businesses. Companies from across the country 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 part 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 part 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, which will be announced in November of this year.

“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.”
