— Plante Moran, PLLC, the nation’s 12th largest certified public accounting and business advisory firm, placed among the top three best “medium size companies” to work for by Columbus Business First. The Central Ohio business newspaper announced the winners of its annual “Best Places to Work Awards Program
” on November 9th.
Plante Moran placed second overall in the medium size company category, for companies with 100 to 499 employees. Close to 200 companies were nominated in this category and 35 finalists competed for top honors. Judges based the nominees and winners on surveys with 30 questions filled out by employees.
Plante Moran enjoys a long-standing tradition when it comes to an award-winning culture. Earlier this year, FORTUNE Magazine included Plante Moran on its list of “100 Best Companies to Work For” for the 13th consecutive year. Plante Moran also has one of the lowest turnover rates in the profession and has been lauded for its high percentage of women partners.
Columbus office Managing Partner Robert Shenton says Plante Moran offers the experiences of a top tier firm with a small town feel. “We have a unique culture here that resonates a ‘we care’ attitude and our staff members recognize that,” explains Shenton. “There are so many great companies here in Central Ohio and the fact that this award is entirely employee driven makes it that much more rewarding.”
With offices throughout Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois and in Mexico, China and India, Plante Moran remains a leader in attracting and retaining staff in the competitive professional services arena through progressive workplace programs and time-tested approaches.
