Ann Arbor, MI: Yeo & Yeo CPAs & Business Consultants has been named one of Metropolitan Detroit's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For by the Michigan Business & Professional Association for the third consecutive year.

"We are especially honored to be recognized as one of the 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For this year because we were compared to not only prominent companies in Metropolitan Detroit, but also those in many other large Michigan cities such as Midland, Saginaw and Flint," said Thomas O'Sullivan, managing principal of the Ann Arbor office. "Our employees enjoy an exceptional work environment - they are engaged in the work they do for our clients, have opportunities for training and professional development, and benefit from open communication. The firm also supports their commitment to community service. I am proud of Yeo & Yeo and the employees who made this award possible."

Yeo & Yeo offers rewarding careers for individuals who have the desire and drive to grow as leaders in the accounting profession. Over 200 employees in offices throughout Michigan take pride in the firm's reputation for personal service, commitment to clients and community support. Yeo & Yeo has a culture of developing future leaders through its in-house training department, professional development training and formal mentoring, while sustaining a family friendly work environment. The firm also offers an award-winning CPA certification bonus program. Yeo & Yeo is a strengths-based organization where employees benefit from collaboration across offices and teams, and have access to advisors and resources that help them succeed.

The annual competition is a program of the Michigan Business & Professional Association (MBPA) and recognizes innovative policies and best practices in human resource management. An independent research firm scored each company's entry based on key measures in categories such as compensation, communication, employee education and development, recognition and retention, and community initiatives.

This year the geographic area included in the Metropolitan Detroit competition was expanded considerably to include 21 counties. Companies in counties as far north as Midland, Bay and Saginaw, as far west as Clinton, Ingham and Jackson, and those in the entire Thumb and Metropolitan Detroit regions were eligible to participate. A total of 400 companies fully completed the program this year compared to 300 companies last year.

Winning companies will be honored at MBPA's annual awards program and human resources symposium on September 23 at the Detroit Marriot at the Renaissance Center.
