---- — Agresta, Storms & O’Leary PC was recently named one of the 2013 Best Accounting Firms to Work For, according to Joe Weigel of Weigel Strategic Marketing.

Accounting Today magazine and the Best Companies Group created the annual list to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in the accounting profession. The firm has the additional distinction of being ranked in Top 10 of the small firm category, finishing eighth on this year’s list in the company’s first year of entering the competition.

“We are pleased our associates have recognized Agresta, Storms & O’Leary as a great place to work,” said partner Shawwn Storms. “Their dedication and hard work is what makes Agresta, Storms & O’Leary one of the best accounting firms to work for. We are proud of our firm, and we are grateful for this recognition.”

Accounting firms from across the country entered the two-part survey process to determine the best accounting firms to work for. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated firm’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. The combined scores determined the top firms and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration, survey and analysis process and determined the final rankings.

The list is comprised of 100 companies, split into three groups: 51 small-sized companies (15-49 employees), 43 medium-sized companies (50-249) and six large-sized companies (more than 250 employees).

“We are honored to accept this award,” commented Storms. “It recognizes the outstanding attitude and engagement of our staff to our firm and, more importantly, our clients’ businesses.”
