Plante Moran Named a “National Top 150 Workplace” by WorkPlaceDynamics

SOUTHFIELD, Michigan – February 1, 2013 – Plante Moran, one of the nation’s largest certified public accounting and business advisory firms, has been named to the National Top 150 Workplaces by WorkPlaceDynamics. The announcement was made that Plante Moran ranked 19th nationwide out of 150 organizations. The national list was compiled from the 872 organizations with more than 1,000 employees that participated in regional top workplaces awards programs. The full list of 150 winners can be viewed at

The National Top Workplaces list was determined solely by feedback gathered through an objective employee survey conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP. The survey consisted of a proprietary set of 22 questions to rank companies. Survey results highlight that employees want to work at companies with high levels of organizational health, meaning the company has set a clear direction for its future, executes business objectives well and brings real meaning to work.

Plante Moran Managing Partner Gordon Krater, CPA, welcomed news of the award. “Workplace awards such as the National Top 150 Workplaces have added meaning when they are based on staff input. Nurturing our unique culture and fostering open communication with staff is critical to Plante Moran’s success,” said Krater. “I really want to thank our team firmwide for their belief in and dedication to our client service goals and to each other, because that is ultimately what this award acknowledges.”

This is the second national award Plante Moran has received in 2013 for workforce satisfaction. On Jan. 16, the firm announced it had been named for the 15th consecutive year to FORTUNE magazine’s list of the “The 100 Best Companies to Work For.”
