CHICAGO – (May 26, 2020) – Great Place to Work has honored RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – as one of the 2020 Best Workplaces in Chicago, one of the nation’s most competitive marketplaces.
The ranking considered more than 27,000 responses from Chicago-area employees. Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Rankings are based on employees’ feedback, and reward companies that best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.
“We are honored to have RSM recognized by our people for creating one of the best workplaces in the Chicago area,” said John Bird, Chicago market leader with RSM US LLP. “Having 90% of our people say that RSM is a great place to work, compared to 59% of employees at typical U.S.-based companies, is quite humbling, and speaks volumes for the inclusive workplace we have created together.”
“Best workplaces like RSM have built powerful foundations of trust and human connection to help carry their organizations through stressful and uncertain times,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “This gives companies on this list a powerful opportunity not just to do well for their people, but to do well for their businesses and for Chicago.”
The Best Workplaces in Chicago is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune, based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations. RSM was also ranked as a Best Workplace in Consulting and Professional Services in April 2020, and a Best Workplace for Diversity in December 2019.
