Inside Public Accounting (IPA) presented its first ranking of the nation’s TOP 300 accounting firms—the only one of its kind. Stockman Kast Ryan + Co, LLP (SKR+CO), the largest locally-owned certified public accounting firm in Southern Colorado, has been named one of seven recipients of the inaugural Excellence in Firm Culture awards.
The award is based on the results of an assessment of 2,000 staff members and recognizes firms demonstrating excellence in 12 core qualities of culture as determined by third-party culture experts, CultureIQ.
“I’m so excited about this particular recognition because culture is an expression of our collective values, daily interactions and general environment,” SKR+CO Managing Partner Trinity Bradley-Anderson stated. “The survey results conveyed the trust, respect and appreciation that we each try to demonstrate every day at Stockman Kast Ryan + Company.”
The 12 core qualities measured in the Culture Assessment: Agility; Alignment; Collaboration; Customer Centricity; Empowerment; Engagement; Growth Development; Innovation; Quality; Recognition and Rewards; Trust and Integrity, and Work-life Balance.
IPA Excellence in Firm Culture award winners achieved at least 75% of the total possible score in the combined 12 core culture qualities as well as a minimum of 75% of the total possible employee Net Promoter Score.
IPA also considered the firms’ employee Net Promoter Scores (eNPS) in determining the winners. According to CultureIQ, the eNPS captures a snapshot of employees’ willingness to be ambassadors for the company by advocating employment there.
