WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 19, 2015) – Accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) has been named a Best Place to Work for 2015 by the Washington Business Journal for the third year in a row. The firm ranked two out of ten in the extra-large company category, which included organizations with more than 250 local employees.
The Washington Business Journal created the Best Places to Work award to distinguish “those companies that go above and beyond to provide a friendly and stimulating work environment for their employees.” The award is intended to gauge employee opinions to identify and recognize those companies who have succeeded in building positive workplace cultures.
“Our dedication to fostering a workplace of mutual respect and collaboration reflects our core values of integrity, passion, and stewardship. We are extremely honored to be recognized as a best place to work,” said Executive Managing Partner Ed Offterdinger. “We make it a priority to provide growth opportunities for our employees, as well as support a culture that nurtures teamwork, inclusion, and advancement.”
Office Managing Partner – DC Metro Area Todd Stokes adds: “We are incredibly proud to be named a best place to work three years in a row. Baker Tilly strives daily to provide a positive environment that promotes career growth and invests in our employee's futures. We are very fortunate to have highly energized and passionate people.”
The annual best places to work are determined by an electronic survey of employees, which is facilitated by Washington Business Journal’s event partner, Quantum Workplace. All employees of a participating company receive the survey, with 50 percent completion required in order to be included in the judging process. Quantum Workplace then tallies up the results and the winners chosen based on those who show the high levels of job satisfaction through factors such as “spirit” and “unique company benefits.”
