RALEIGH, N.C. (January 3, 2018) ― Hughes Pittman & Gupton, LLP (HPG), a Triangle-based CPA firm serving the financial management needs of local, multi-state and international businesses, as well as their owners, has been named to Accounting Today’s inaugural 2017 Best Accounting Firms for Women list.
Accounting Today and the Best Companies Group took a deep dive into the responses from the 2017 Best Accounting Firms to Work for survey to compile a list of 15 firms that were particularly friendly to women. HPG is the only North Carolina firm to be recognized on this list.
“It is a great honor for HPG to be recognized in the inaugural Best Accounting Firms for Women list,” said Heather Dean, HPG partner and Executive Committee member. “This recognition speaks to our Firm’s continued commitment to developing an inclusive workplace and further advancing work-life balance and flexibility for each of our employees. “This commitment is further made evident in that nearly half our partnership is comprised of women.”
To qualify, firms had to have a minimum of 25 female employees and have a female response rate to the Best Firms to Work For employee survey that is greater than or equal to 50%. Firms were chosen based on the responses from the women who participated.
The Best Accounting Firms for Women list is published in the December 2017 edition of Accounting Today. The article entitled “A Whole New Ball Game” describes the list as firms who “empower their female professionals to step up to the plate and forge their own path.”
HPG provides tax, assurance, and consulting services to owner-managed, investor-backed and publicly held companies. The firm is committed to a business and personal model based on REACH, a set of core values which include Respect for relationships and results, Excellence, A balanced life, Client Satisfaction, and Honesty and integrity. In addition to a standard package of benefits, HPG provides wellness and assistance programs that allow employees to properly balance work and life.
