Florida-Based Firm, Schellman, Recognized as Fortune Magazine’s Best Workplaces for Millennials™ in 2021
Tampa, FL, July 16, 2021 – Tampa-based CPA firm, Schellman & Company, LLC (Schellman), a leading provider of attestation and compliance services, announced today that the firm has placed #75 among Great Place to Work’s (GPTW) Fortune Best Workplaces for Millennials™ in 2021. To even be considered for a ranking, firms were required to employ at least 50 millennials. Over 70% of Schellman 318 team members are considered Millennials, and though this is their first recognition that is generationally specific, it speaks to the large internal strides the firm has made to continuously improve their overall workplace culture.
In compiling their rankings, Great Place to Work surveyed millennial employees across the country with questions regarding their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, “no matter who they are or what they do.” Employees were also asked to feedback on their daily experiences with their company’s innovation, values, and the effectiveness of leadership. The collective response from the millennial team members at Schellman published by GPTW praised the transparency and proactivity of upper management with regular, personal communication, and specifically recognized the firm’s efforts to reward performance with quarterly bonuses and “surprise gifts.”
Such a response is a testament to the work culture Schellman has always sought to establish and maintain—one that prioritizes its people. “The designation from Great Place to Work helps validate that at Schellman we invest in our people who help build our company” says Avani Desai, President, Schellman & Company. "Regardless of age or generation, we have the best and brightest delivering our services, and to appropriately appreciate their hard work, we need to provide them with not only the compensation and benefits that match their high caliber, but also a positive environment where they feel comfortable and where they can grow professionally.”
Honored by the initial #75 ranking among millennials, Schellman will strive to improve that position for next year. “As we tailor our programs and push the firm to new industry heights, we will continue to lead with culture, performance and a people-first philosophy. Providing a platform for talented people to perform at the very top of their profession is fundamental to our success.” says Chief People Officer, Karen Greene.
