Baker Tilly named Great Place to Work® for 4th Consecutive Year

Recertification based on feedback from team members who overwhelmingly cite challenging work and firm atmosphere as key areas of excellence

CHICAGO (September 23, 2019) – The Great Place to Work® organization recertified leading accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) as a great workplace.

The Great Place to Work designation is the gold standard in workplace recognition and is a special achievement determined by responses and opinions that randomly selected employees provide in a comprehensive, anonymous survey.

“Validation from our team members is an especially high honor and reflects our dedication to creating an extraordinary culture,” Baker Tilly Chairman and CEO Alan D. Whitman said. “People are the underpinning of our entire strategy as we create the advisory CPA firm of the future, today.”

Baker Tilly team members scored the firm positively with the following top survey statements:

  • 99 percent – this is a safe place to work
  • 96 percent – people are treated fairly regardless of race or sexual orientation
  • 95 percent – management is honest and ethical
  • 94 percent – people are given a lot of responsibility
  • 94 percent – our clients would rate our service as “excellent”
  • 93 percent – you feel welcome when you join the firm

A full 89 percent of Baker Tilly employees said taking everything into account that the firm is a great workplace, according to the survey. That ranking is similar to that of the country’s most respected employers.

“We’re humbled to again be nationally recognized as a Great Place to Work,” said Todd Stokes, managing partner - people. “Our team members bring our culture to life. This honor belongs to them.”
