MUCR Recognized as Best Accounting Firm to Work For
Mahoney Ulbrich Christiansen Russ PA has recieved a Sloan Award for the fifth straight year! Sloan Awards are part of When Work Works, a research-based initiative to highlight how effective and flexible workplaces can yield positive business results and help employees succeed at work and at home. To win, applicants must rank among the top 20 percent of U.S. employers in terms of their programs, policies and culture for creating an effective and flexible workplace.
In addition to the Sloan Award we have been named one ot the Top 100 Workplaces in Minnesota based on an employee-based survey project from the Star Tribune. The Star Tribune Top Workplaces award recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions about organizational health, job expectations and employee engagement. The analysis included responses from over 64,300 employees at Minnesota public, private and nonprofit organizations.
We are also honored to have been selected as one of the best of the best and have been included in Minnesota Business magazine's second annual 100 Best Companies to Work For awards. The awards salute Minnesota organizations setting the standard for employee well-being. The 100 Best are chosen using data gathered from an anonymous employee satisfaction survey administered by an independent research group. Only the top Minnesotan companies, as judged in areas such as work environment, employee benefits, employee happiness, and leadership, are selected for inclusion in the list.
Once again we have been named as one of the 2013 Best Accounting Firms to Work for. The annual list of the Best Accounting Firms to Work for was created by Accounting Today and Best Companies Group. This survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the accounting industry, benefiting the industry's economy, workforce and businesses.
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants has identified MUCR as one of the 500 largest firms in the United States, out of 44,000 in the nation. The Major Firms Group consists of the 100 largest firms. The AICPA has named the next 400 largest firms as the Group of 400 or "G400".
