Southfield — Plante Moran, one of the nation’s largest accounting and business advisory firms, was named Employer of the Year at the inaugural International Accounting Bulletin Awards celebration, held March 8th in London. International Accounting Bulletin is a leading authority on the global accounting industry and regularly analyzes firm performance and best practices. There were ten award categories, including Employer of the Year, and more than 100 nominations were received from across the world. Plante Moran was shortlisted for the award earlier last week and competed with three other firms for the top honor: BDO International, Beierholm (Denmark), and KPMG (United Kingdom).
With its low turnover rates, spirited culture and emphasis on maintaining a balance of life among staff members, Plante Moran has a longstanding reputation as an employer of choice. In January 2012, the firm received notice that it had landed on the coveted Fortune Magazine “100 Best Places to Work” list for the 14th consecutive year. Speaking of the International Accounting Bulletin Award, Plante Moran Managing Partner Gordon Krater noted the Employer of the Year designation offers a new level of recognition for the firm.
“Knowing that our reputation as a great place to work has brought us to the global stage for recognition is extremely meaningful to me and everyone who works collaboratively to keep Plante Moran a sought after place to work and advance in one’s career,” said Krater.
