Shannon & Associates just received a big honor: We’ve been named one of the best accounting firms to work for in the entire nation! This annual survey and awards program, administered by Accounting Today and Best Companies Group, identifies, recognizes, and honors the best employers in the accounting profession across the country. We were listed as the 26th Best Small Firm to Work For.
This is no surprise to Partner and CEO, Julie Courtney, who credits staff for the award.
“Shannon & Associates is proud to be named one of the best accounting firms to work for in the nation. As a well-established employer in South Puget Sound, we work hard to foster a strong company culture and work environment that allows employees to better serve their clients and their community”, said Partner and CEO, Julie Courtney.
“Without question, our employees are what makes Shannon & Associates a best place to work. We have a dynamic and forward-thinking team dedicated to having a workplace where we support each other and where enthusiasm and ingenuity are key.”
She’s particularly impressed with the way everyone’s been working hard, working efficiently, and supporting each other during the pandemic.
“With our team working remotely because of the pandemic, I have seen more clearly than ever the incredible character, skill, and commitment of our people. They have encouraged one another in spite of being physically isolated and worked hard to keep our business going strong.”
Honorees are determined using a two-part survey process. The combined scores decided the top companies and their final ranking.
For the first part, worth about 25% of the total evaluation, the workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics were evaluated for each company. Employee experience surveys made up 75% of the assessment.
“The firms on this list represent the best workplaces in the accounting profession,” said Accounting Today Editor-in-Chief Daniel Hood. “They are outstanding places to build a career.”
