PKM Named One of 2016’s Top Workplaces in Accounting


Porter Keadle Moore (PKM) is once again one of the nation’s Best Accounting Firms to Work For. Accounting Today magazine, in cooperation with Best Companies Group, announced in August that the firm was a finalist in the 2016 rankings of top accounting workplaces. The publication’s November issue revealed that PKM earned the highest ranking of any mid-sized firm in the Southeast.

“We are very proud to yet again be ranked as the highest mid-sized firm in the Southeast,” said PKM COO Debbie Sessions. “We’re also proud to help set a standard that other firms work hard to surpass, which is great for the industry overall and its people,” she added.

The editors of the publication wrote that accounting firms have adopted so many positive practices that the differences between them are often “a matter of inches.” They said the top firms stood out for many reasons, including benefits packages and work/life balance. One of the biggest differentiators, they noted, is transparency; this includes helping employees and partners understand the organization’s financial performance, communicating changes in advance, and helping everyone understand what’s required for advancement.

PKM prides itself on its transparency, its open door policy – especially for young staff members – its mentoring programs and opportunities for advancement. It also organizes team-building events such as whitewater rafting; the magazine included a photo of that activity on the cover and in an online gallery.
