PYA, a national professional services firm headquartered in Knoxville, has been awarded a 2019 Top Workplaces honor by the Knoxville News Sentinel. The award is a result of employee feedback detailing job satisfaction, confidence in leadership, and more.
For the second straight year, PYA has been awarded a Top Workplaces honor by the Knoxville News Sentinel. In addition to this recognition, PYA also took first place for Leadership in a midsized company, reflecting employees’ trust and confidence in the Firm’s leadership. 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.
“Being named a 2019 Top Workplace is an honor made even more meaningful by the fact that it demonstrates the sentiments of our team members and their commitment toward our Firm,” said PYA President Marty Brown. “Our employees work tirelessly to promote a culture of helpfulness, both with our clients and among our colleagues. They are true servant leaders who rise to the occasion, deliver value, and foster relationships that have become cornerstones of our successes.”
The Top Workplaces employee survey was administered by Knoxville News Sentinel research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. According to Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage, “Top Workplaces [recipients] put the employee at the center of things and focus on creating the right environment to unleash potential and inspire performance.”
In addition to the 2019 Top Workplaces honor, PYA has been profiled in Accounting Today’s “Inside the Top 100—In-Depth Looks at Four of the Most Successful Firms in the Country” and was ranked 3rd highest percentage female ownership among the Top 100 Firms by INSIDE Public Accounting. It also is consistently ranked among the Top 20 healthcare consulting firms in the U.S. by Modern Healthcare.
