Southfield, Mich.—Nov. 7, 2017—Clayton & McKervey, an international certified public accounting and business advisory firm located in metro Detroit, is pleased to announce it has been named a 2017 Free Press Top Workplace. It is the sixth year Clayton & McKervey has been included on the Free Press list, which ranks the best places to work in Michigan. The firm was among the honorees recognized at the Top Workplaces 2017 Awards reception on Nov. 2 at the Troy Marriott.
“We are honored to be recognized once again as one of the top workplaces in Michigan,” said Clayton & McKervey President Robert Dutkiewicz. “Public accounting is a competitive field for talent and its important to our client service efforts that our staff see Clayton McKervey as a positive place to work and build a career.”
The Top Workplaces survey gathers employee responses and measures organizational health in four categories:
- Alignment – being aligned as an organization
- Effectiveness – executing effectively
- Connection – genuinely and meaningfully connecting with employees
- My Manager – managing employees well
Clayton & McKervey ranked in the top third of the small company category, notably receiving a 4.9 out of 5.5 for staff response to the “My Manager” query.
Clayton & McKervey promotes a collegial and responsive work environment. The firm, already an industry leader in promoting women to partnership and other roles of high-level responsibility, introduced the Women’s Network in 2016 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.
