New York, NY (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
For the second year in a row, Rothstein Kass (http://www.rkco.com), a leading national professional services provider, has been recognized by Working Mother magazine in their annual “Best 100 Companies” list. In this year’s ranking, the firm was praised for its various work-life balance initiatives, which provide flexibility to employees and enhance the firm’s culture. In particular, the firm was commended for its flextime policies, backup dependent care program and mentoring initiatives.
“As a firm that prides itself on being a great place to work for men and women alike, we’re honored to be once again named one of Working Mother’s ‘100 Best Companies,’” said Rosalie Mandel, Principal-in-Charge of the Rothstein Kass LIFE program. “Through our various initiatives, including our LIFE program and our customized work policy, we’re fostering an environment where women don’t have to sacrifice their home lives to continue advancing in their careers. Our programs have already had a tangible impact on the retention of our female employees and we know we’re just getting started.”
The cornerstone of Rothstein Kass’ women’s initiative is the firm’s LIFE (Leadership, Inspiration, Family, Empowerment) program, which is dedicated to helping women reach their full potential by fostering leadership opportunities, creating new business development platforms and facilitating mentoring relationships. Throughout the years, the firm has developed complementary initiatives and programs to further the professional development of all employees. These include:
- “The Working Mother’s Networking Group,” which provides working mothers with networking opportunities and tools and tips for balancing professional and home responsibilities,
- Rothstein Kass University, a program providing all employees with continuing professional education (CPE) credit courses, and
- “The Leadership Circle,” the firm’s initiative for furthering the development of male and female principals.
In addition to the recognition from Working Mother magazine, Rothstein Kass was named a “Best Public Accounting Firm for Women” by both the American Society of Women Accountants and the American Woman’s Society of Certified Public Accountants. Rothstein Kass was also included on Fortune’s “Best Companies to Work For” list in 2013 and Inside Public Accounting’s 2012 “Best of the Best Firms” ranking.
