AICPA named one of "10 Best Companies for Employee Financial Security"


The Principal Financial Group named the AICPA to “The Principal 10 Best Companies for Employee Financial Security.”

The annual list recognizes small and midsize companies that excel in giving their employees a financial edge. An independent panel of experts selects winners that demonstrate a commitment to their employees’ total financial security. For example, the Institute offers automatic 401(k) enrollment and automatic contribution increases, wellness benefits such as subsidized gym memberships and on-site health education programs, personal finance classes, and resources built on its 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy program.

“CPAs fundamentally understand the importance of sound fiscal health to a person’s overall well-being,” said Lawson Carmichael, AICPA senior vice president–Strategy, People & Innovation. “At the AICPA, one of our prioritized benefits for our employees and their families is to assist them with building and maintaining solid financial foundations. It’s an honor to be recognized as a national model.”
