Working Mother Names RSM to 2017 "100 Best Companies" List

Leadership in family benefits and paid leave cited as exemplary

NEWS RELEASE

CHICAGO,

Working Mother magazine recently recognized RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – as one of the 2017 Working Mother 100 Best Companies for RSM’s strong leadership in creating progressive programs for its workforce in the areas of advancement of women, flexibility, childcare and paid parental leave. The 100 Best Companies are featured in the October/November issue of Working Mother and on workingmother.com.

“It is an honor to, once again, be recognized by Working Mother on the publication’s ‘100 Best Companies’ list,” said Richard Caturano, partner and national leader – culture, diversity and inclusion with RSM. “This is the eleventh consecutive year RSM has been included on this prestigious list, and it’s a direct reflection of our firm’s focus on attracting and retaining the best diverse talent to provide the best service to our increasingly diverse and global middle market clients.”

RSM understands that its people are its most important asset, and they regularly celebrate and recognize one another’s accomplishments. For example, earlier this summer, RSM’s Family First employee network group recognized the firm’s Working Mother and Working Father of the Year, Ashley Lawler and Charles Barley Jr, for successfully managing personal and professional priorities, providing exceptional experiences for the firm’s clients and our people, and serving as mentors and role models for others.

“This year’s winning companies know the value of keeping their employee moms engaged and supported,” said Working Mother Editor-in-Chief Meredith Bodgas. “They use schedule flexibility, paid parental leave and family benefits to ensure that parents can develop meaningful careers while leading satisfying home lives.”

“As our 32nd year of recognizing the best companies begins, we are happy to see that the next generation, coupled with technology, have shown us how employees can be efficient, productive, effective and impactful no matter where they work,” said Subha Barry, senior vice president and managing director of Working Mother Media. “The 2017 Working Mother 100 Best Companies’ policies and programs have built loyalty among their employees that cannot be underestimated.” .
