It’s hard to believe we have only a few days left in 2015. What a great year it has been! As the last MP message of the year, I would like to take this opportunity to share my gratitude and appreciation for the hard work, enthusiasm and continued support that has been demonstrated by the entire staff. Everyone in all departments – from our Professional Staff (Staff 1’s to the PICs) to the IT Department, Finance, Collections, Human Resources and Marketing – have been running on all cylinders and putting forth best efforts, keeping our firm on a positive trajectory towards even greater heights in 2016.
Our clients, communities and the influencers in our profession are noticing, giving Withum high rankings in prestigious lists such as Accounting Today’s Best Accounting Firms to Work For; NJBIZ’s Best Places to Work in New Jersey for the eleventh consecutive year; Crain’s Best Places to Work in New York City for a third year in a row; Best Places to Work for in New York State for a third year; Inside Public Accounting’s Top 50 Firms ranking #28 in the country and #6 in the Northeast; Vault Accounting 50 ranking #15; and for a fourth year, New Jersey Law Journal’s “The Best of” Reader Polls winning in three different categories in 2015. Our philanthropic initiatives have also been recognized, being named a “Great Oak Awards Finalist” by New Jersey Monthly honoring the state’s most generous companies; winning a Philadelphia Business Journal Corporate Giving Award in its “Hands On Initiative” category for Withum Week of Caring; and being a finalist in CIANJ’s Companies that Care program. I sincerely thank you for your outstanding efforts.
The cornerstone of our success is truly the loyal and talented professionals who work here every day. At Withum, our culture and commitment to providing a great work environment allows our professionals to grow and thrive in their careers, and also having some fun while doing so. The Withum Way philosophy is indeed alive and well. I hope you are looking forward to the State of the Firm event on January 11th as much as I am. There will be plenty of good things to share and celebrate, demonstrating why our firm continues to be one of the best places to work in the profession.
On behalf of all of the partners, I wish you a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2016!
