September 21, 2012, East Brunswick, NJ...Wilkin & Guttenplan PC is pleased to announce that we have recently been named as one of the 2012 Best Accounting Firms to Work for in the country. Each year hundreds of firms apply to be considered for the list which only includes a final 100 firms. This is the fifth (5th) year in a row that Wilkin & Guttenplan has been named to this list, including earning the title as the number one (#1) firm among medium-sized firms in the country in 2010.
This annual list was created by Accounting Today and Best Companies Group to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in the accounting industry.
The Best Accounting Firms to Work for in the country list is made up of a total of 100 companies, split into three groups: 47 small-sized companies (15-49 employees), 45 medium-sized companies (50-249 employees) and 8 large-sized companies (more than 250 employees). Wilkin & Guttenplan has been named one of the Best Accounting Firms to Work for in the medium-sized company category.
To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:
- Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business;
- Be a publicly or privately held business;
- Have a facility in the United States;
- Have at least 15 employees working in the United States;
- Must be in business a minimum of 1 year;
- Be an accounting firm.
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 anonymous 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.
Upon receiving the letter that the firm has once again been named to this prestigious list, emails from the Managing Shareholder and the Firm Administrator went out to the entire firm. "We should ALL be proud of this accomplishment...Thank you all for helping us to achieve this honor!" wrote Janine Zirrith, Firm Administrator. "Congratulations and thanks to all of you for making us an Accounting Today Best Place to Work in the county Firm." wrote Edward Guttenplan, Managing Shareholder. "You should all be as proud as I am of the extraordinary team we have!"
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. The list-making firms will also be published in the December issue of Accounting Today.
