ATKG, LLP, is pleased to announce it has been selected as the 10th best small accounting firm to work for in the nation. Accounting Today, the leading information resource for public accounting firms announced rankings of the 2020 Best Accounting Firms to Work for in partnership with the Best Companies Group. Annually the two companies work to identify firms that have excelled in creating quality workplaces for employees. 2020 marks the 9th year that ATKG ranked as one of the top 40 small accounting firms (49 employees or less).
One hundred firms from across the country received recognition in one of three categories – small, medium, or large firms. To be considered, firms participated in a two-part survey process. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top firms and the final ranking.
“We are proud to be recognized by Accounting Today for our efforts to establish and sustain a rewarding firm culture, especially during such unprecedented times. Our team is the driving force behind our success. Providing opportunities for professional and personal fulfillment remains key to ATKG. Although we work hard, we understand the importance of enjoying life and supporting one another,” said Managing Partner Melanie Kirk.
Various firm initiatives and benefits led to ATKG being selected, including alternative work schedules, self-managed PTO, access to professional networking and enrichment opportunities, and the ability to develop leadership skills early on in their careers. Recently ATKG launched “ATKG Life Events,” an employee-led initiative designed to coordinate support for team members during challenging moments and to celebrate the good ones.
Accounting Today Editor-in-Chief Daniel Hood had this to say about the Top 100 firms to work for, “The firms on this list represent the best workplaces in the accounting profession. They are excellent places to build a career.”
ATKG wishes to thank its team members for the passion and commitment they put forth in all that they do.
