Fortune and Great Place to Work® Name "RSM One of the 2021 Best Workplaces for Women"

CHICAGO – (September 16, 2021) – Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have 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 2021 Best Workplaces for Women™. RSM came in at No. 37. Earning a spot on this prestigious list means that RSM is one of the best companies to work for in the country.

The Best Workplaces for Women™ award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 5.6 million current U.S. employees. In that survey, 92% of RSM’s people said that RSM is a great place to work. This number is 59% higher than the average U.S. company. RSM is joined on the list of Best Workplaces for Women™ by  American Express, Bank of America and Salesforce, among others.

“Our dedicated team of professionals continues to make RSM a great place to work – for all of our 13,000+ diverse people across the U.S. and in Canada,” said Katie Lamkin, chief talent officer with RSM US LLP. “We’re honored to be recognized as one of the 2021 Best Workplaces for Women™, and thank our people for all they do to help our middle market clients – and one another – succeed.”

The Best Workplaces for Women™ list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work®, the global authority on workplace culture, selected companies for the list using rigorous analytics and confidential employee feedback. Companies were only considered if they are a Great Place to Work-Certified™ organization.

Great Place to Work® is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.

“These companies have made a commitment to fostering equity in the workplace,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “With the data about gender inequity in mind, the Best Workplaces for Women braved the task of combatting gender inequity by ensuring their women employees feel safe, heard, challenged and valued.”

Earlier this year, Great Place to Work® and Fortune named RSM one of the 2021 Best Companies to Work For®, and Great Place to Work® included RSM on its 2021 lists of Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services™, as well as its Best Workplaces in Texas™, Best Workplaces in Chicago™ and Best Workplaces in New York™.
