Work-life balance and meaningful benefits key to recruitment, retention

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) May 06, 2016

The Indiana CPA Society was recognized yesterday as one of the top companies in the Indiana Chamber of Commerce's 2016 Best Places to Work in Indiana.

INCPAS ranked third out of the 48 small companies named to the list in the "small companies' category" (15-74 employees). This is the fifth consecutive year INCPAS has been named to the elite list of 100 Indiana companies. INCPAS President & CEO Gary Bolinger, CAE, accepted the award on the Society's behalf.

"The Indiana CPA Society takes great pride in having an engaging, innovative and fun work environment," said Bolinger. "We are honored to be recognized for the fifth consecutive year. This reflects not only the culture of our staff, but the energy and enthusiasm they bring to work every day."

INCPAS incorporates benefits such as jeans year-round, cookoff competitions, flexible scheduling, telecommuting, alternating half-day Fridays in the summers, raffles for PTO time, a bank of donated sick days for family emergencies and maternity leave, destination learning and post-secondary education reimbursement.

INCPAS' retention efforts are paying off. Of the 21 staff members, 11 are millenials (born 1980 to 2000) - six of whom have already been with INCPAS five years or longer. Seven staff members have been with INCPAS over 10 years, three over 15, and two over 25.

"We strive for the best service and experience possible for our members," said Bolinger. "To accomplish this, we need to recruit and retain the best staff. We are constantly listening and looking out for what's meaningful to employees in the workforce."

The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, BizVoice® magazine, Inside INdiana Business, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) - IN State Council, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation and Best Companies Group.

The top companies in the state are determined through employer reports and comprehensive employee surveys. The Best Companies Group, which handled the selection process, oversees similar programs in 21 other states.
