MGI North America member Santos, Postal & Company, P.C. has won the crown for being the best small accounting firm to work for in the whole United States.
The Rockville, Maryland firm topped Accounting Today’s 2015 Best Firms to Work For, previously having made the list for each of the last five years.
Managing Partner Charles Postal explained what drives the firm’s values and why it’s such a great place to work.
“We’re very dedicated to remaining independently owned and operated,” he told Accounting Today.
A big emphasis is placed on good succession planning, enabling the baby-boomer generation of senior staff to move business across to younger employees before they retire.
For example, the firm is working with the Maryland Association of CPAS to help the 25 to 35-year-olds get involved in the process.
Charles adds: “We give them a seat at the table and say to them, explicitly: ‘You are our future.’ We’re telling this generation we can’t do it without them.” He goes on to say, “we offer the most current technology, relevant continuing education, and many benefits including every other Friday off during the summer months.”
Santos, Postal & Company, P.C. recently expanded through a merger with Hildebrand, Limparis & Associates, P.C. (HLA).
