HLB Certified a Most Loved Workplace

LOS ANGELES, CA (April 17, 2023) – HLB International, the global advisory and accounting firm that includes GHJ among its independent member firms, has been honored as a “Most Loved Workplaces” certified company. This recognition, which is awarded by Most Loved Workplaces and backed by research from the Best Practice Institute, is awarded to companies whose employees are the happiest and most satisfied at work.

HLB’s network received this certification based on its scores on the “Love of Workplace Index,” which surveyed employees on various elements around employee satisfaction and sentiment including the level of respect, collaboration, support and sense of belonging they feel in the organization. GHJ and other HLB member firms conducted local and regional engagement surveys, which were used to calculate HLB’s “Love of Workplace Index.”

“GHJ is proud of the work we have done to allow our people to #BeMore to their self, their families and the Firm, and we are proud to be part of a network that also prioritizes employee satisfaction,” said GHJ Managing Partner and HLB North America Chairman Tom Barry. “When people are given the freedom to pursue their passions and achieve their goals, they have more pride in the work they do. This is why we invest in our people.”

Between January 2021 and December 2022 GHJ’s head count grew by 44 percent. Through this growth, the Firm introduced new initiatives to build connectivity, revamp its benefits program and introduced a summer “Mental Health Week,” a weeklong break where team members were given the space to rest and recharge. GHJ recently won Employee Experience of the Year at the Transform Awards for these efforts.
