RSM Named to "Best Employers For Diversity" List by Forbes

CHICAGO – (January 21, 2019) – RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – was recently named one of America’s “Best Employers For Diversity” for 2019 by Forbes.

Forbes worked with research firm Statista to determine the definitive list, which recognizes companies for their commitment to diversity. The companies were identified in an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 50,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within their U.S. operations.  The rankings were compiled using four different criteria: direct recommendations; indirect recommendations; diversity among top executives/board members; and diversity key performance indicators (KPIs).

“We’re excited to be recognized on this list for our ongoing focus on diversity,” said Katie Lamkin, chief human resources officer with RSM US LLP. “At RSM, we seek to understand and embrace the unique differences of our people. We believe this recognition exemplifies our firm’s unwavering commitment to a diverse and inclusive workplace, and to celebrating the differences among our talented people.”

“Our 11 employee-led employee network groups do a great job of fostering inclusiveness here at RSM,” said Richard Caturano, national leader – culture, diversity and inclusion with RSM US LLP. “We know that by embracing the diverse thinking of our people, we’re able to bring more innovative ideas and services to our middle market clients to help them achieve success. And when they succeed, we succeed.”

For the evaluation, employees were asked to give their opinions on a series of statements surrounding the topics of age, gender equality, ethnicity, disability, LGBTQ+ and general diversity concerning their own employer. Additionally, participants were given the chance to evaluate other employers in their respective industries that stand out either positively or negatively with regard to diversity.
