Baker Tilly Named to Vault Accounting 50 for 10th Straight Year

The Associated Press

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 15, 2019--Leading advisory, tax and assurance firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) is named to the Vault Accounting 50 by Vault.com for the 10th consecutive year, taking its place among the best accounting firms to work for in North America.

Baker Tilly rose two spots from last year to No. 6 overall, led by strong practice area rankings, leading employee benefits offerings and the quality of life it provides for its team members.

“We’re committed to understanding what matters most to our people,” Baker Tilly CEO Alan Whitman said. “These rankings demonstrate how we’re embracing a workplace of trust and transparency. Together, we’re building our future today.”

Baker Tilly’s culture is driven by listening to team members to understand key engagement and motivating factors. Many of the firm’s progressive programs including expanded parental leave, “Dress for Your Day” and MOVE@Baker Tilly wellness program emerged from understanding and acting on team member feedback.

In addition to its overall ranking, Baker Tilly scored high on the survey’s quality of life categories, determined by survey responses from Baker Tilly team members, including employee benefits (No. 6), compensation (No. 7) and corporate social responsibility initiatives (No. 11). Baker Tilly also scored high among industry peers in overall prestige (No. 8) and in practice area rankings: audit & assurance (No. 9), forensic accounting (No. 8) and tax accounting (No. 8).

The Vault Accounting 50 rankings are the result of online career resource Vault’s annual accounting survey, conducted earlier this year. The survey asked 8,200 accounting industry professionals of all levels to assess their peer firms based on overall prestige and to assess their own firms based on various quality of life categories, including firm culture, compensation, overall satisfaction, training, diversity, hours and work/life balance. Vault uses a weighted formula that combines each firm’s prestige and quality of life rankings to create its overall “best to work for” ranking to determine the Vault Accounting 50. The complete list is available at vault.com/company-rankings/accounting/vault-accounting-50/.

In addition to the continuing recognition from Vault, Baker Tilly is certified as a great workplace by the Great Place to Work® organization and Fortune Magazine, is named a Best Adoption-Friendly Workplace by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and is consistently recognized as a best place to work in its local markets.
