CHICAGO – (September 20, 2022) – Seramount – part of EAB, the leading provider of education research, technology, and marketing and enrollment solutions – recently revealed its annual list of 2022 100 Best Companies, representing almost four million employees across the United States. This year’s winners continue to set the standard by providing inclusive benefits for families, including paid gender-neutral parental leave, phase-back programs, bereavement leave after miscarriage, reimbursement for fertility expenses, and increased mental health benefits for employees. RSM US LLP  (“RSM”) – the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – is among the 100 companies that earned a spot on this year’s list.

These companies continue to set the bar high when it comes to building family-friendly, inclusive workplaces.”
