Fortune Magazine Names Plante Moran
The Michigan-based accounting and consulting firm ranked 11th on the magazine’s annual list of the nation’s “Best Companies to Work For.”
Plante & Moran was noted for a variety of innovative workplace policies and practices including its statement of principles, culture, low turnover rate, flexible scheduling and non-traditional career paths.
“National business scandals made 2002 a tough year psychologically for CPAs,” said Bill Hermann, managing partner with Plante & Moran.
“To try to keep our staff upbeat and positive, we did our best to reinforce our firm’s values and guiding principles — while communicating the importance of honesty, ethics and integrity.”
To be eligible for the Fortune Magazine recognition, applicant companies must have a minimum of 500 employees and have been in business for at least 10 years.
Two-thirds of the ranking is based on randomly selected employee responses to the “Great Place to Work Trust Index,” a survey instrument by the Great Places to Work Institute that measures the quality of workplace culture.
