LBMC Named a Best Place To Work
May 23, 2012, Nashville, TN -- At the Nashville Business Journal luncheon May 22, LBMC was named a Best Place To Work in the 101-500 employee category. In front of a crowd of over 400, HR Director, Jessica Utley, took the stage to accept the award on behalf of LBMC’s HR team and the entire LBMC organization. “This is a win for all of our offices, it is about our people and our culture,” says Jessica.
This is exciting news for LBMC who has worked diligently to develop a unique culture. Over the last several years, the firm has developed a number of new initiatives, but it is the attitude, compassion and dedication that people bring with them every day that make the greatest impact on LBMC being a Best Place To Work.
LBMC prides itself on being a ‘listening’ organization, eager to hear what employees have to say about how to improve the company, which includes being employed there. Ideas such as business casual, seasonal flex schedules, purchased PTO, discounted gym memberships, themed quarterly parties, sports days, Young Professionals (YP Group), coaching program and women’s initiatives (and the list goes on and on) are all a result of listening to employees. Programs like these, as well as recognition by the Best Place To Work award itself, help LBMC recruit and retain a highly talented workforce.
“We work hard and we play hard,” says David Morgan, Co-Managing Partner. “We have a set of core values that is our anchor and I believe we have some of the most talented people in the industry. This is a time of celebration.”
