PKM Among Best Workplaces for Millennials

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Jun 1, 2015) - A new survey ranks Porter Keadle Moore accounting firm (PKM) as one of the nation's Best Places To Work for Millennials. The newly-released list of winners was compiled by the Center for Generational Kinetics in partnership with Best Companies Group (BCG), which manages more than 50 Best Places to Work programs around the globe.

Porter Keadle Moore is repeatedly at, or near, the top of Accounting Today's list of the Best Accounting Firms to Work For, and has been named one of the country's most Psychologically-Healthy Workplaces. This indicates it is now a top choice for the younger generation of professionals, which is the largest segment of America's workforce. 

"A lot of the success of our Millennials is attributed to them viewing their role at PKM as a career and not a job," said PKM Managing Partner Phil Moore. "These Millennials act as owners. From day one, they view PKM as their business and strive to see beyond themselves and look to the greater good of the firm. They have the real desire to understand the bigger picture from our core values to our service offerings so that we can in turn offer the best service to our clients."

PKM prides itself on creating a "feedback culture," which gives every employee a voice. The firm also provides counseling and mentoring that Millennials need to advance in their careers. This includes small "accountability teams" that offer discrete guidance to young professionals, and a "career ladder" that shows them exactly what they need to do to advance. Finally, the PEAK mentorship program helps promising young talent gain a wide array of skills by working with different partners.

"These are the companies that excel in creating a fulfilling work experience with what is now the largest workforce segment in the United States," said author and Millennial researcher Jason Dorsey, of The Center for Generational Kinetics. "Knowing what motivates Millennials to want to stay at a job has never been more important. A key segment of the Millennial generation is proving to be highly valuable to employers and defying stereotypes about their generation."

BCG analyzed data from the more than 4,000 U.S. organizations before making the final determination. The full list of winners, and an accompanying paper titled "Unlocking Millennial Talent," is available at BestPlacesToWorkMillennials.com.
