For the Second Consecutive Year, the Firm is One of the Highest-Scoring Businesses With Standout Employee Engagement
SC&H Group, a nationally recognized management consulting, audit, and tax firm, has been named one of Inc. magazine’s 2019 Best Workplaces, the publications fourth annual ranking in the fast-growing private company sector. SC&H Group is the largest Baltimore-area company on the list, joining 14 Maryland-based companies.
SC&H Group’s Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Mack McGee, said of the award, “Inc.’s Best Workplaces recognition is one of the highest compliments the firm can receive because our team put us on this prestigious list – again. We work in a highly competitive market for talent. It is important to provide a fantastic place to work for our people, and in turn provide a greater value for our clients.”
Hitting newsstands in the June 2019 issue, and as part of a prominent inc.com feature, the list is the result of a wide-ranging and comprehensive measurement of private American companies that have created exceptional workplaces through vibrant cultures, deep employee engagement, and stellar benefits. Out of thousands of applicants, Inc. singled out nearly 350 winning companies.
Each nominated company took part in an employee survey, conducted by Omaha’s Quantum Workplace, on topics including trust, management effectiveness, perks, and confidence in the future. This year, 74.2 percent of surveyed employees were engaged by their work—besting last year’s 72.1 percent.
The strongest engagement scores came from companies that prioritize the most human elements of work. These companies are leading the way in employee recognition, performance management, and diversity. It’s a different playbook from a decade ago, when too many firms used the same template: free food, open work environments, and artifacts of “fun.”
While researching the finalists, Inc. and Quantum saw distinct themes:
- 99 percent provide health insurance—and some cover the cost.
- 49 percent allow employees to bring pets to work.
- 65 percent take employees to offsite retreats to relax and recharge.
- 16 percent offer paid sabbaticals to reward length of service.
“With today’s tight labor market, building a great corporate culture is more important than ever,” says Inc. magazine editor in chief James Ledbetter. “The companies on Inc.’s Best Workplaces list are setting an example that the whole country can learn from.”
