For the fourth consecutive year, Smith & Howard was recognized by Accounting Today as one of the Best Accounting Firms to Work For in the U.S.
The Accounting Today survey identifies, recognizes and honors the best employers in the accounting profession. Companies from across the United States entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Accounting Firms to Work for. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25 percent of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.
John Lucht, Managing Partner of Smith & Howard notes that “There are many contributing factors to the firm’s repeated recognition in this distinguished list. Many of those factors are included in the firm’s values” including:
"People: We help our people be the best that they can be.

Dedication and commitment from and to our people are fundamental to our success and the success of our clients. Opportunities for our people are without limits and rapid advancement is based on desire, ability, performance and contribution to the firm’s success. Mutual respect and the alignment of firm and individual goals foster teamwork and produce the best results. We recognize that without the best people we cannot be the best firm. We help our people be the best that they can be."
