For a third year, PYA, a national accounting and management consulting firm has been named a “Top Workplace” by the Knoxville News Sentinel. In the Knoxville area, PYA was 1 of only 15 medium-sized companies that qualified for a Top Workplaces honor and was the only CPA/Consulting Firm, as well as the only professional services firm in the mid-size business category. In addition to this recognition, PYA received a special award for having the best “Work-Life Flexibility” of any firm, in any category.
The Top Workplaces award is based solely on employee feedback gathered through an anonymous third-party survey that measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection.
“It is humbling that our employees view PYA as a firm whose culture and environment are worthy of this honor. Our employees actually requested that we participate in this survey a couple of years ago. Their continued desire to participate demonstrates we are achieving the level of employee satisfaction the Owners hope to foster,” said PYA President Marty Brown.
“Receiving the ‛Work-Life Flexibility’ award is especially gratifying because we have taken steps to maintain our firm’s culture during a particularly challenging year. Our employees have consistently done whatever it takes, regardless of location or environment, to meet the needs of our clients,” Brown said. “This award is about them. It is through their commitment and flexibility that PYA has been able to serve our clients with excellence and go ‘toe-to-toe’ with firms of all sizes. They truly embody our culture of helpfulness.”
In addition to the 2021 Top Workplaces honor, PYA has been ranked by Accounting Today as a Top 100 Firm in the U.S. for the fifth year in a row, as well as a Top 10 regional leader in the Southeast. The firm also has the highest percentage of consulting/business advisory revenues of all the CPA firms in the country. And among firms with revenues of $100 million or less, PYA’s consulting/business advisory services revenues lead the nation. In 2017, PYA was recognized by Accounting Today in the article “Inside the Top 100—Profiles of Four of the Most Successful Firms in the Profession.” PYA has also been ranked 3rd highest percentage female ownership among the Top 100 Firms by INSIDE Public Accounting.
