"Providing our recent graduate employees with the flexibility, benefits and advancement opportunities to make their jobs challenging and fulfilling makes sense for them professionally and personally, and for us as a company. Our innovative WorkLife strategy helps to differentiate us from our peers and demonstrates our commitment to respect of all individuals." In Ohio, RSM McGladrey employs 150 people in four offices. RSM McGladrey provides accounting, tax and financial business consulting to a wide range of clients throughout Ohio in manufacturing and wholesale distribution, the commercial sector, not-for-profit, social service agencies and real estate. The company was named to the list in part because of its training program and flexible work environment, which provides entry-level employees flexibility and benefits through options such as: competitive salaries, compressed workweeks, health insurance plans, telecommuting, job sharing, flextime, reduced-work schedules, membership discounts, intensive training, competitive vacation allowance and tuition reimbursement for higher education. For the past five years, the company has made a concerted effort to integrate WorkLife initiatives into its culture for all employees, not just recent graduates. McGladrey is one of the first companies to make the measurement of WorkLife goals an important component of the employee performance review process. The company also has leveraged its comprehensive Flexible Work Environment programs -- offered to employees at all levels -- in its recruitment of college graduates. "We are committed to offering new graduates meaningful work in an environment where they can excel. If we create the right conditions for employees, we will attract the right kind of talent, and ultimately derive more value for our clients," said Ken Bansemer, McGladrey's national director of recruiting and talent management. "Being named to the BusinessWeek list further underscores the tremendous progress we have made in providing college graduates with challenging and meaningful career opportunities, and a culture for success."

With the help of an industrial research firm, applications are validated and scored on more than 500 points of information, including the number of previous interns hired after graduation and the length of time to reach manager status within the company.
