Washington Business Journal recognizes Baker Tilly’s exceptional workplace culture for fourth consecutive year.
TYSONS, VA. (June 17, 2016) – Leading accounting and advisory firm Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP (Baker Tilly) has been named Washington, D.C.’s Best Place to Work for 2016 by the Washington Business Journal.
Baker Tilly was named the best place to work among companies with more than 250 local employees. This is the fourth consecutive year Baker Tilly has received the Washington Business Journal recognition and the first time it has won first place in its category.
“We are extremely pleased that the Washington Business Journal has named Baker Tilly the best place to work in the D.C. area,” Baker Tilly Executive Managing Partner Ed Offterdinger said. “We are dedicated to continually building our culture of growth, collaboration, trust and respect. This honor is special recognition of that employee-focused culture and our firm’s commitment to core values of integrity, passion and stewardship.”
The Washington Business Journal created the Best Places to Work award to distinguish area companies that “go above and beyond to provide a friendly and stimulating work environment for their employees.” The award evaluates employee opinions and identifies and recognizes companies that have successfully built positive workplace cultures.
“Successful companies build camaraderie, encourage connection and foster cohesive teams and office culture,” Baker Tilly’s Office Managing Partner - D.C. Metro Area Todd Stokes said. “But, you can’t have a one-size-fits-all type of approach. Companies need to be adaptable and provide options for development, recognition and growth. We believe in that employee-focused approach at Baker Tilly.”
“We believe strongly in the development and advancement of our people. To be a great place to work, it’s vital to provide viable paths for growth and leadership while promoting genuine work-life balance. It’s very rewarding to see Baker Tilly’s dedication and commitment to our people being recognized,” Katherine Wiernicki, D.C. partner, said.
