PHILADELPHIA, PA (September 16, 2021) – Your Part-Time Controller, LLC (YPTC) has once again been voted a Best Firm to Work For by Accounting Today, and this time, the company has placed second in the ‘Large Employer’ category. While the list of Best Firms was published on Accounting Today’s website in late July, official rankings were announced at the publication’s virtual awards ceremony on September 8th.
“Placing so highly on Accounting Today’s 2021 list of Best Accounting Firms to Work For is an incredible feat. I am so proud of our continued growth, the strength of our culture, and the system of support we’ve constructed. This is a win that would not have been possible without the collective and exemplary effort put forth by each member of our staff,” said Eric Fraint, YPTC’s President and Founder.
Despite the ever-evolving landscape of the past year, 2021 has highlighted the endurance and positivity ingrained in YPTC’s culture, with the company receiving additional “best workplace” accolades from Inc. magazine, and the Philadelphia, Washington, Houston, Phoenix, and Rochester Business Journals.
After making the list in 2019 and missing the mark in 2020, YPTC leadership took feedback from staff and implemented new programs and changes. These include new perks and incentives, an ongoing equity program, increased employer benefit contributions, and an initiative to update all technology to aid staff working from home.
“In 2020 and 2021, we had to re-imagine the structure of our work while maintaining what makes us so great, and our staff not only responded with fluidity, but they also went out of their way to help us achieve titles from multiple publications, now including Accounting Today,” said Jennifer Alleva, YPTC’s Managing Partner.
Accounting Today worked with Best Companies Group to craft an employee survey that fit the unique workplace circumstances presented by the pandemic. The survey’s questions subsequently emphasized the timeliness and effectiveness of COVID-driven transitions, continued effort to connect in a remote environment and the level of care for employees’ well-being.
Regarding the Accounting Today survey distribution and employees’ responses, YPTC’s Director of Human Resources, Mary Dagney, remarked, “Ranking second place as a national Best Accounting Firm is a great honor, but another benefit of participating in this survey is seeing the trust YPTC staff has in our response to the pandemic. With an overwhelming majority of our staff pleased with the changes we’ve implemented, we know after 28 years, that the ‘YPTC Way’ has continued to lead us in the right direction. I consider that a great success and a guiding principle for our future growth.”
YPTC and all other ranking firms appear in Accounting Today’s September print edition. For more information and access to the full report of employers, click here.
