PEOPLE and Great Place to Work® Name "RSM One of the 2021 Companies that Care"

CHICAGO – (August 31, 2021) – Great Place to Work® and PEOPLE magazine have honored RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting service focused on the middle market – as one of the 2021 PEOPLE Companies that Care®. Earning a spot on this prestigious list means that RSM is one of the best companies to work for in the country.

The Companies that Care award is based on analysis of survey responses from more than 5 million current employees. In that survey, 92% of RSM’s employees said that the firm is a great place to work. This number is 59% higher than the average U.S. company.

Other companies included on the list are Bank of America, Salesforce, Target and American Express, among others.  

“At RSM, our vision is to be the first-choice advisor to middle market leaders globally, and our people – who are caring, curious, collaborative and courageous critical thinkers – help us achieve that,” said Katie Lamkin, chief talent officer with RSM US LLP. “These ‘5 C’s’ as we call them, are the characteristics of a first-choice advisor. They’re core to our culture and enable us to be great client servers, teammates, leaders and members of the communities where our people live and work. This recognition is special in that it validates our caring culture.”

The Companies that Care 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 employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great company experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.

“These companies show up for humanity in a variety of ways – from showing compassion for their employees giving back to their communities to putting diversity, equity and inclusion in the forefront,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “They’re paving the way for more socially responsible business, and are fostering high-trust workplaces for all. Congratulations to the winners of the PEOPLE’s Companies that Care lists!”

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 list 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™ lists.
