Clayton & McKervey, an international certified public accounting and business advisory firm located in metro Detroit, is pleased to announce it has been awarded a 2018 Top Workplaces honor by the Detroit Free Press. It is the eighth year Clayton & McKervey has been included on the Detroit Free Press list, which ranks the best places to work in Michigan.

“The Detroit Free Press Top Workplaces award is very important recognition for our firm and we are thrilled with our longevity on the list,” Clayton & McKervey President Robert Dutkiewicz said. “Attracting and retaining high achieving, happy staff is critical to our success. Public accounting is a competitive field for talent, and our client service efforts depend on staff that view Clayton & McKervey as a positive place to work and build a long-term career.”

The Top Workplaces list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC. The survey gathers employee responses and measures organizational health in four categories:

  1. Alignment – where the company is headed; its values; cooperation
  2. Effectiveness – doing things well; sharing different viewpoints; encouraging new ideas
  3. Connection – employees feel appreciated; their work is meaningful
  4. My Manager – cares about concerns; helps employees learn and grow.

The survey also asks about employee engagement, where Clayton & McKervey scored above the CPA profession average, confidence in company leadership and general questions about pay, benefits, flexibility and training.

Clayton & McKervey promotes a collegial and responsive work environment. The firm, an industry leader in promoting women to partnership and other roles of high-level responsibility, uses its Women’s Network program to engage female leadership talent with a four-tier approach that increases access to role models; improves marketing opportunities; provides education and support for career advancement; and enhances the culture of the firm to ensure the successful retention and recruitment of women.

In addition, Clayton & McKervey’s young leadership training program taps employees before they are managers and turns them into the firm’s leaders of tomorrow through technical training and leadership conferences, off-site learning, daily mentoring and in-house coaching, and community involvement. The firm also emphasizes the importance of making time to have fun and connect outside of working hours to foster visible, deeper levels of engagement with each other and the community.
