"We are big on communications and in sharing our goals and progress updates"

Becoming a Best Place to Work requires having the best people to work with. As the Jacksonville Business Journal celebrates the First Coast companies whose employees are the happiest, we've dug into how these workplaces got to that point — how did they bring together a team of superhero employees? For many of them, it starts during the hiring process and continues through on-boarding, mentoring and team bonding: things that attract the best candidates and keep employees with the companies for years.

Must Have Perks for Accounting Firms

Tolstoy’s comment that all happy families are alike might just as well apply to accounting firms: The Best Firms share a long list of attributes, policies and best practices that have become table stakes for recruiting and retaining top talent.

These common practices extend to compensation, culture, communication, career development and beyond (and will be covered in later installments of 20 Days to a Better Firm), but they also include a list of perks and extras.

Oversharing Is a Virtue

Just as employees value frequent performance reviews because they give them a clear sense of the direction of their careers (see Day 4), they also want to hear more, and in more detail, about their firms’ progress – and top workplaces are more than ready to share.

Two-thirds of the chief executives of the 2018 Best Firms to Work For (68 percent) meet at least quarterly with their employees to brief them on the state of the firm, and two-fifths do it on a monthly basis.
