NEWS RELEASE

CHICAGO,

RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – is proud to announce that we have been recognized as one of the country’s Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services by consultancy Great Place to Work and Fortune.

The results draw from surveys of 36,750 employees who assessed their firms’ leadership, benefits, camaraderie, work-life balance and other factors essential to a happy, high-functioning team. Colleagues who gave their workplaces high marks overall were notably more likely to express loyalty and pride in their work.

“At RSM, we value the many contributions our employees make to help our middle market clients succeed,” said Joe Adams, managing partner and CEO of RSM US LLP. “In return, we strive to provide our employees with programs, benefits and development opportunities that help them succeed – both professionally and personally. Being named a ‘Best Workplace in Consulting & Professional Services’ reaffirms that our efforts to create a differentiated talent experience – one where employees’ unique needs, ambitions and aspirations are understood and appreciated – are making a difference.”

The Best Workplaces stood apart from their peers on questions assessing professional development and the ability of their leadership. Winning organizations also received higher scores on their benefits and community involvement.

“It’s no secret that the value of a professional services organization lies in its people,” said Great Place to Work’s Executive Vice President, Kim Peters. “The Best Workplaces invest in their staff’s knowledge and wellbeing, creating a high degree of trust that’s reflected in their work for clients.”
