Accounting Today Names Lattimore Black Morgan & Cain, PC One of the Nation's Best Places to Work for 2012
Nashville, TN October 25, 2012- Lattimore Black Morgan & Cain, PC (LBMC) is proud to announce it has been named to the 2012 National Best Places to Work list by Accounting Today. One of only eight companies chosen in the large-sized company category (more than 250 employees), LBMC was identified, recognized and honored as one of the best places of employment in the accounting industry.
Accounting firms from across the country entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Accounting Firms to Work for. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated firm'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. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings.
“ To be selected as one of the best places to work for in the nation is exciting news for LBMC who has worked diligently to develop a unique culture,” said Jessica Utley, LBMC Director of Human Resources. “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 one of the nation’s best!”
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 LBMC COO John Litchfield. “We have a set of core values that is our anchor and as a result we have been fortunate to attract some of the industry’s most talented people. Everyone at LBMC understands that this is a tremendous industry accomplishment for our firm, but they also know that being a part of LBMC gives them an opportunity to take control of their future – we want to see them soar.”
The ranking of the 5th annual Best Accounting Firms to Work for will be unveiled at an awards ceremony sponsored by ADP during Accounting Today’s 2nd Annual Growth & Profitability Summit on October 28th – October 30th at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, Florida.
