Rockville, MD, June 5, 2007/PRNewswire/ — Aronson & Company (A&C), a nationally ranked top 50 accounting and consulting firm based in Rockville, MD, was recognized by Washington Business Journal as one of the Washington, D.C. Metro area’s Best Places to Work. A&C was honored in the Large (local) category. The award recognizes the company’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture. The honorees were selected from a pool of more than 300 nominations.

Remarked Lisa J. Cines, CPA, Managing Officer, “We are thrilled to receive this award, which affirms publicly that A&C is dedicated to providing our valued staff with a unique opportunity to forge their own career path through a wide variety of options. We support self-determination and self-sufficiency, bolstered by a culture of learning that enables our employees to succeed on their own terms.” She continued, “At A&C we are committed to creating a flexible and open environment – an environment that works the way a new labor force does. We provide more than jobs; we offer our employees the opportunity to forge a future.”

Along with sponsors Littler Mendelson, Reznick Group and Quantum Market Research, the Business Journal will present the results of quantitative employee surveys at their annual breakfast awards on Thursday, June 7th at the Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner. The top companies will also be profiled in a special supplement in the June 8th edition of Washington Business Journal.

“As the workforce changes, meeting the needs of employees requires companies to think outside of the box. While accommodations like telecommuting and alternative work arrangements are becoming necessary to attracting and retaining talent, we understand that, in addition, it is the little things that really make the difference,” commented A&C’s Director of Human Resources, Dawn Bailey. “For example, to help employees find office-appropriate summer clothing options, we host a fashion showcase by a major department store as part of our Health and Wellness Week events. It’s these sorts of things, in combination with creative social events, and unique fringe benefits that really add up to a total workplace experience.”
