Memphis Accounting Firm Claims Two Accounting Today Awards

MEMPHIS, TN РReynolds, Bone & Griesbeck PLC (RBG) is pleased to announce that the firm was recently named to Accounting Today’s 2021 list of the Best Accounting Firms to Work For and Best Firms for Young Accountants.

This is the second consecutive year that RBG has been acknowledged as Best Accounting Firm to Work For and the first time it was named to the Best Firms for Young Accountants list.

“It is a great honor to be recognized as one of the best accounting firms to work for,” said Skeet Haag, CPA, managing partner of RBG. “It’s amazing to receive these two sought-after awards, especially at a time when staffing and retention has been hardest for our profession. We take great pride in fostering growth and creating career opportunities for our younger staff.”

Firms from across the United States entered the survey process to determine Accounting Today’s Best Accounting Firms to Work For. The survey program is designed to identify, recognize, and honor the nation’s 100 best employers in the accounting profession. Each nominated company was evaluated based on workplace policies, practices, philosophies, systems, and demographics. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, firms were also assessed based on their response to employee safety matters. Seventy-five percent of the combined score was attributed to an employee survey that measured engagement and satisfaction. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process, analyzed the data, and determined the final ranking.

To qualify for the Best Firms for Young Accountants, firms needed to have at least 15 employees under the age of 30 or have employees under 30 constitute at least 10 percent of their total employee count. An anonymous employee survey was distributed, and the response rate for employees under the age of 30 was required to be at least 40 percent. Firms were then ranked according to the average positive response rate.

Since 1905, Reynolds, Bone & Griesbeck has delivered the highest quality accounting, audit, tax, and advisory services to its clients. Over the last century, much has changed, but RBG’s  principals have not. RBG continues to uphold the legacy of its founders, who were among the first certified public accountants in the state of Tennessee. Through dedicated service to clients and employees, RBG continues to commit to its core values of passion, respect, ownership, stewardship, teamwork, elevation, and community.
