Insero & Co. CPAs, LLP has been awarded a Rochester Top Workplaces 2020 honor by the Democrat and Chronicle. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage, LLC. The firm was also named winner of a special award for New Ideas, based on standout responses to the statement “New ideas are encouraged at this company.”

“We are proud to be a founding winner and look forward to celebrating this honor for the seventh year in a row,” said Nancy Catarisano, Managing Partner.

Our people are our most important asset,” said Kristi Tarantelli, Recruiting and Employee Relations Specialist. “We have chosen to focus on innovation and collaboration to foster the type of environment where people are fulfilled and excited to come to work each day. We owe many thanks to our entire team for upholding this focus and making Insero such a great place to work.”

The anonymous survey uniquely measures 15 drivers of engaged cultures that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“For more than a decade, the Top Workplaces award has helped organizations stand out among their competitors to attract talent,” said Eric Rubino, CEO of Energage. “This differentiation is more important than ever in today’s tight labor market. Establishing a continuous conversation with employees so you have a deep understanding of your unique culture is proven to help achieve higher referral rates, lower employee turnover, and double the employee engagement levels. No longer is recognition simply a much-deserved cause for celebration, but it’s fast becoming mission-critical to establish a competitive advantage for recruitment and retention.”

Insero currently employs 150 professionals across New York state. The firm has repeatedly been recognized nationally as one of the Best Accounting Firms to Work for by Accounting Today and Best Companies Group and was also named to the inaugural list of Best Places to Work for Millennials.
