RSM McGladrey named to inaugural list of Certified Flex-Friendly companies
CHARLOTTE, NC – RSM McGladrey, one of the nation’s leading accounting, tax and business consulting firms, was recently named to Flex-Friendly’s inaugural list of Certified Flex-Friendly companies.
The Flex-Friendly campaign and certification is designed to promote workplace flexibility and to recognize organizations striving to meet the needs of a changing workforce. Flex-Friendly announced its official certification program launch with an inaugural list of 24 certified companies which, in addition to RSM McGladrey, includes Accenture, American Express, Sara Lee, Northeast Delta Dental and others from across the nation.
“Collectively, the Flex-Friendly certified organizations employ hundreds of thousands of workers in the U.S., and around the globe,” said Flex-Friendly CEO Jane Seibel. “What these organizations have in common is a commitment to offering a range of flexible work options, as well as a belief that offering flexibility when possible is not only good for their workers, but also for the bottom line.”
According to Flex-Friendly, employees from the employers on this inaugural list reported confidentially that, even in a down economy, working flexibly helps them feel more loyal to their employers, happier, less stressed and willing to go the ‘extra mile.’ All organizations included in the list have committed to increasing access to flex options that work for both their organizations and their employees.
“RSM McGladrey is committed to flexibility because it’s the right thing to do for our employees and our business,” said the firm’s National Leader of Internal Client Service and People Kimpa Moss. “We’ve worked hard to build a culture where people are empowered to work when, where and how they choose, while meeting client needs. It’s an honor to receive this recognition of our efforts.”
Other recent recognitions received by RSM McGladrey include being named to BusinessWeek’s “Best Places to Launch a Career” list, Working Mother magazine’s “100 Best Companies” list (with the firm’s flexibility options being recognized as “Best in Class”) and receipt by 33 RSM McGladrey locations of the Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workforce Flexibility. Learn more about RSM McGladrey’s awards/recognitions.
