KatzAbosch named a 2009 Best Accounting Firms to Work For winner

Regional certified public accounting, tax and consulting firm KatzAbosch Sept. 28 announced it has been awarded the 2009 Best Accounting Firms to Work For honor by Accounting Today magazine. This annual award program, created by Accounting Today and Best Companies Group, acknowledges the best places of employment in the accounting industry nationwide.

One hundred public or privately held U.S. accounting firms in three different categories were recognized — 20 small-sized companies (15-24 employees), 65 medium-sized companies (25-249 employees), and 15 large-sized companies (more than 250 employees). KatzAbosch has been named one of the Best Accounting Firms to Work For in the medium-sized category.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our unwavering commitment to our employees among such a distinguished group of accounting firms from across the nation,” said Mark R. Cissell, President and CEO of KatzAbosch. “For 40 years, KatzAbosch has been, and will continue to be, committed to hiring, retaining, and recognizing the best-qualified and most-dedicated professionals while affording them opportunities for personal growth, professional development, and advancement.”

Companies from across the country entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Accounting Firms to Work For. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings.

“It is especially rewarding to receive this prestigious award as a result of the glowing responses KatzAbosh received from our personnel who spoke so highly of the firm during the voting process,” said Alvin D. Katz, Co-Founder and Chairman of KatzAbosch. “The fact that our shareholders average an impressive 22 years with the firm is testament to our enduring commitment to providing the necessary support, resources and guidance that our staff needs to excel and succeed.”

The complete list of the 2009 Best Accounting Firms to Work For winners will be included in Accounting Today’s December 14, 2009 issue.
