Best Accounting Firm to Work ForIn August, Accounting Today honored Global Tax Network (GTN) with the 2018 Best Accounting Firms to Work For award, and we could not be more excited, proud, and grateful. Frankly, the list of what this means to us is endless!

Winning this title speaks directly to who we are as a firm, what we stand for, and what our employees have accomplished. Our president, Dave Kolb, couldn’t have said it better when he announced the win to our employees, “What you all do isn’t easy. This is one of those times when you can sit back and be extremely proud of the job you do every day and know that the extra effort you put in makes a big difference. It makes a big difference to our clients, and it makes a huge difference to the others on our team – those sitting next to you and those across the country.”

So, to say receiving this honor means a lot to us, is an understatement. But what does our winning this award mean to you? The recognition that comes with this award means you are working with a team that loves what they do. A team that is given the time and opportunity to reach their professional and personal goals. When employees are granted time and support to help balance all that goes on in their lives, their happiness, energy, and enjoyment flows through to you, our clients, partners, and friends. They focus more and they work harder, knowing GTN will support them should a personal need arise. They are excited about helping you navigate the mobility tax world, providing dedicated account management with guidance delivered in language you can understand.

We are grateful to be able to offer our employees flexible schedules, competitive benefits, and stellar rewards and bonuses; but really, we are honored to be part of their journey. Helping our employees find their passion is what we love. And this passion turns into world-class service for you, our clients, and partners, and exceptional support for the others on our team. 

For all of these reasons (and so many more), we are so very honored to have been chosen as an Accounting Today’s 2018 Best Accounting Firms to Work For. To all of our clients, partners, and employees, you made that happen by letting us make a difference in your journey, and for that we thank you!
