    Find out what it is like to work at one of the “50 Best Workplaces for New College Graduates.” Crowe ranked seventh on this Fortune list, in addition to being named one of Fortune’s “Top 100 Best Companies to Work For” and among Fortune’s “20 Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services.” In these surveys, Crowe personnel attribute the following policies to making Crowe a great place to work:

    Innovation: Crowe promotes new ideas and creativity. Each year, Crowe invests approximately two percent of firm revenue in new product development funding to bring employees’ ideas to fruition. Crowe’s new product development process facilitates the exploration and development of a prototype of the solution before its production. These solutions aim to address clients’ challenges and streamline processes.

    Mobility strategy: Implemented more than two years ago, this strategy defied the norm of the professional services industry. Crowe personnel can work where they are most productive – whether that be the office, their home or elsewhere – and wear jeans while they are in the office. This policy continues to be well received by employees across all business units.

    Benefits: The firm promotes healthy living through its internal well-being portal, which allows Crowe individuals to complete wellness activities – such as exercise challenges, healthy eating, doctor visits and mindful lifestyle changes – for gift cards and health insurance premium reductions. Additionally, on top of its healthcare and retirement programs, Crowe recently expanded its paid time off policies for military leave and all new parents.

    Community service: Crowe places a high priority on community service, as acknowledged in the Fortune Best Workplaces for Giving Back list. In honor of the firm’s 75th year, Crowe personnel are working toward a combined goal of 75,000 hours of volunteering. In addition, Crowe aligns its charitable contributions with the volunteer efforts of its people through initiatives such as matching contributions and donations to employees’ charities of choice.
