Great Place to Work® Names RSM One of the 2021 Best Workplaces in Chicago", Ranking No. 14

CHICAGO – (May 20, 2021) – 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 2021 Best Workplaces in Chicago™. RSM came in at 14th place. 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 in Chicago award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 30,000 current employees across the U.S. In that survey, 92% of a company’s employees said RSM is a great place to work. This number is 33 points higher than the average U.S. company.

“We are so grateful for our dedicated people here at our firm’s headquarters location in Chicago, across the country and in Canada,” said Katie Lamkin, chief talent officer with RSM US LLP. “It’s our people who make working at RSM a special experience, and we thank them all they do to earn this and other incredible honors.”

The Best Workplaces in Chicago list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture, selected 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 they treat their people. 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 roles are.

“The Best Workplaces in Chicago are made up of good people who are about their people,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “This exclusive group has created cultures where people’s background have no influence on whether they’re treated with respect, fairness and credibility. These companies can expect better business results thanks to their high-trust, inclusive workplaces.”

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™.
