Firm wins best workplace award

For two years in a row Elgee Rehfeld Mertz, LLC was recognized as one of the nation’s top 100 accounting firms for which to work.

Accounting Today magazine and the survey organization Best Companies Group compile the prestigious 100 Best Accounting Firms to Work For list annually.  To be considered for the award firms from across the nation submit a two-part survey.

Final rankings are a compilation of scores from an evaluation of each nominated firm’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics and a survey to measure employee experience.

Elgee Rehfeld Mertz ranked in the top 15 percent of U.S. accounting firms in 2011. While the firm knows it has made the big list for 2012, the final ranking for the year won’t be unveiled until Accounting Today’s second annual Growth and Profitability Summit on October 28 –30 in Boca Raton, Florida.

Southeast’s largest accounting firm will also be listed with other recognized firms in the December issue of Accounting Today.

The company bases its success on the hard work and dedication of its partners and employees. These attributes extend outside of the workplace. As an example, ERM partner Max Mertz recently received the Jay A. Ofsthun Distinguished Service Award from the Alaska Society of Certified Public Accountants for his service as a member and sometime chairman of Alaska’s CPA licensing board (
