AT BGBC, we strive to impact the daily lives of each of our employees. Simply put, we put our people first. We are honored to see our focus pay off. By putting our employees first, we have been named Top Workplaces 2022 by the IndyStar for the fifth year in a row. While we are thrilled to see our culture have such a strong impact on our team member’s well-being, it is because of their hard work and dedication that we can continue to excel.

For Managing Partner Kyle Simmerman, this award provides great value to the continued development of the firm. “Receiving recognition is always a good benchmark and when it is directly related to feedback from our team it just means more,” he said. “Firm leadership focuses much of our time, energy and efforts on our team members so they can focus on exceptional client service. It is amazing to see our team members flourish which leads to BGBC being named a Top Workplace.”

How does the Top Workplace award work?

The Top Workplace award is based solely on employee feedback and is known as the most credible, authentic employer recognition program. The survey, powered by Engergage is voluntary and anonymous. It features a series of questions where employees rank the company on a seven points scale gauged from strongly disagree to strongly agree. The questions focus on four culture imperatives as outlined by

Align: Where the company is headed, its values, cooperation, effective meetings
Connect: Employees feel appreciated, work is meaningful, working at full potential, clued-in to each other
Coach: Managers care about concerns, are helpful, encourage employee development
Performance: Execution, open-mindedness, innovation, clued-in leadership

It also measures employee engagement, leadership and the basics such as pay, benefits and training. To have the honor of receiving this award for the past five years speaks volumes about our culture. Sometimes the public accounting industry can often receive a bad reputation, but at BGBC we strive to provide new and experienced accountants the opportunity to do what they love in an inclusive, driven and positive environment.
