With women leadership equity of 43%, HBE is one of just 11 firms nationwide awarded with this honor and the only firm in the region on the list.
HBE has a long history of leadership equality due to core values centered upon integrity, respect, and teamwork. Employment programs proven to retain midcareer women include phased return to work for new parents, work-life supports for busy season, and coaching to help managers lead teams based on productivity, not face time.
“Our commitment to the growth and satisfaction of every one of our employees—regardless of gender, age, or race—is key to our success in attracting and retaining the best and brightest people,” stated Scott Becker, Managing Partner of HBE. “As the demographic of young professionals entering the accounting profession evolves, we will continue to develop and support flexible leadership pathways built upon unique contributions and talents.”
The Accounting MOVE Project evaluates CPA firms across the nation based on percentage of women in leadership roles of various levels. This year, women comprise 23% of the partners and principals at the 49 firms that participated in the MOVE Project, the profession’s only annual benchmark of the status of women in the leadership pipeline. That is a marked increase from 2012’s 17%.
