St. Louis, - Anders CPAs + Advisors (Anders) has been ranked #1 on the Midsize Employers category for the 2017 Top Workplaces list by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Anders has been on the Top Workplaces list several times, and in 2016, was ranked at the top of the Midsize Employer Category for the first time. The Top Workplaces lists are based on results of an employee feedback survey administered by WorkplaceDynamics, LLC. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few. 1400 companies submitted entries for the 2017 Top Workplaces list.

 

“The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of WorkplaceDynamics. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.”

 

Among the attributes that make Anders a top workplace include the open, collaborative work space reflecting the culture of the firm, a generous PTO and benefits package, flexibility and extensive technical and professional training programs. Anders supports and encourages their employees to get involved in organizations they’re passionate about, and provides development dollars to help them do so.

 

The complete list of Top Workplaces can be found in the June 26 issue of the Post-Dispatch.
