Accounting Today Announces the First Annual 2008 Best Accounting Firms to Work For

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 10, 2008) - 60 accounting firms have been honored as the Best Accounting Firms to Work For in an inaugural program created by Accounting Today, the premier news vehicle for the tax and accounting professions, and Best Companies Group. The ranking of the Best Accounting Firms to Work For will be unveiled and published in the January 5, 2009 issue of Accounting Today.

This survey and award program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in the accounting profession, which benefit the nation's economy, its workforce and businesses. The Best Accounting Firms to Work For list comprises 60 firms organized into three size categories: 5 small-sized firms (15-24 employees), 40 medium-sized firms (25-249 employees) and 15 large-sized firms (more than 250 employees).

To be considered for participation, companies had to be public or privately held U.S. accounting firms with at least 15 employees.

Firms from across the country entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Accounting Firms to Work For. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated firm's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings.
