AKRON, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/AGP?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#AGPlt;/agt;–Apple Growth Partners (AGP), accounting and business advisory firm, was
recently named one of the 2019 Best Employers in Ohio. The annual
list of the Best Employers in Ohio was created by the Ohio
Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) State Council, Crain’s
Cleveland Business, and Best Companies Group.
This statewide survey and awards program is designed to identify,
recognize, and honor the best places of employment in Ohio, benefiting
the state’s economy, its workforce, and businesses. The 2019 Best
Employers in Ohio list is made up of 41 companies. Companies must
meet multiple criteria to be considered for participation.
“To be named one of the Best Employers in Ohio is a testament to
the dedication and professionalism of our team to fostering a positive
culture,” states Chuck Mullen, chairman. “In the last two years, we’ve
merged two additional firms, consolidated our Cleveland workspace,
opened a new office in Canton, and adopted new information technology
infrastructure while helping more clients achieve healthy growth.”
Having completed a year-long celebration honoring the firm’s 75th
anniversary in 2018, the Best Employers in Ohio recognition kicks
off an exciting year ahead for the firm.
“We are committed to our employees through offering new and
industry-leading benefits,” says Erin McCafferty, director of
operations. “In the last year, we’ve rolled out a paid parental leave
program, student loan consolidation resources, and flexible hours to
encourage working remotely and supporting work-life balance.”
Modern benefits, along with in-house resources for professional
development and coaching, positions AGP as a pioneer in the accounting
industry for employee advancement. As the firm continues to grow its
presence in Northeast Ohio and beyond, leadership is committed to
putting employees first.
“Our clients are extremely satisfied because our employees are
fulfilled,” comments Mullen. “This recognition ensures our firm is on
the right track and will hold us accountable for continuing to identify
additional improvements for our firm.”
Companies from across the state entered the two-part survey process to
determine the Best Employers in Ohio. The first part consisted of
evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices,
philosophy, systems, and demographics – worth approximately 25 percent
of the total evaluation. The second component consisted of an employee
survey to measure the employee experience – worth approximately 75
percent of the total assessment. The combined scores determined the top
companies and the final rankings. Best Companies Group managed the
overall registration and survey process in Ohio and analyzed the data
and used their expertise to determine the final rankings. For more
