THE BALTIMORE SUN MEDIA GROUP NAMES KATZABOSCH A WINNER OF THE BALTIMORE 2017 TOP WORKPLACES AWARD December 5, 2017 KatzAbosch has been awarded a 2017 Top Workplaces honor by The Baltimore Sun Media Group. The Top Workplaces lists are based solely on the results of an employee feedback survey administered by Energage, LLC (formerly WorkplaceDynamics), a leading research firm that specializes in organizational health and workplace improvement. Several aspects of workplace culture were measured, including Alignment, Execution, and Connection, just to name a few. “The Top Workplaces award is not a popularity contest. And oftentimes, people assume it’s all about fancy perks and benefits.” says Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “But to be a Top Workplace, organizations must meet our strict standards for organizational health. And who better to ask about work life than the people who live the culture every day—the employees. Time and time again, our research has proven that what’s most important to them is a strong belief in where the organization is headed, how it’s going to get there, and the feeling that everyone is in it together. Claffey adds, “Without this sense of connection, an organization doesn’t have a shot at being named a Top Workplace.” This is KatzAbosch’s fourth time winning The Baltimore Sun’s Top Workplaces Award. In 2017, the firm also received Accounting Today’s Best Accounting Firms to Work for Award, and recognized as one of the top three best accounting firms in The Daily Record’s Reader Rankings. In previous years, the firm has ranked among the Top 15 Largest Accounting Firms in the Baltimore Area by the Baltimore Business Journal, and among the Top 200 Accounting Firms in the U.S. by Inside Public Accounting. “We’re very proud to have received such recognition,” said Mark Cissell, President and CEO of KatzAbosch. “These awards truly reflect the type of work environment we have here at the firm.” About the Firm Founded in 1969, KatzAbosch is one of the largest CPA and business consulting services in the Mid-Atlantic region.
