MOBILE, AL, January 9, 2018 – Wilkins Miller, an accounting and advisory firm with offices in Mobile and Fairhope, has been named to the first-ever list of “Best Accounting Firms for Women” by Accounting Today. Wilkins Miller is the only firm from Alabama to make the list and one of only 15 firms in the country to be recognized.
“I’m thrilled to see Wilkins Miller on this list,” Partner Stacy Cummings said. “Our team is continuously focused on improving our workplace environment to make it a great place for everyone. I, along with many others, joined the firm right after college and have been able to work full time while raising a family because of the support, professional, and personal mentoring I’ve received here.”
Coming in the ninth spot, Wilkins Miller’s team is made up of 60 percent female employees with 33 percent of those in leadership positions (13 percent at time of survey in May 2017).
Firms are selected from the 2017 Accounting Today and Best Companies Group Best Firms to Work For. They must have a minimum of 25 women working in the organization, or women must represent 25 of employees, whichever is greater, and the female response rate to the Best Firms to Work For anonymous employee survey must be greater than or equal to 50 percent. Firms are ranked in order of female percent of positive response, from largest to smallest.
“We are excited and honored to be recognized nationally as a Best Accounting Firm for Women,” Partner Allen Carroll said. “Our entire team deserves credit for this recognition as it is direct result of our collective efforts to create and promote a firm culture that is willing to be flexible for the benefit of the individual, the entire team, our clients and the firm.”
