Impact Report

Letter from

Brian Becker

Dear clients, colleagues and friends,

It is an honor to write my first impact report letter as Managing Partner & CEO of RSM US LLP. Our vision for the transformative era ahead is our boldest yet as we strive to become an even more compelling, digital and global enterprise.

The title of this year’s report reflects our global purpose to instill confidence in a world of change, and this year has certainly been full of changes. From advances in artificial intelligence to economic headwinds to global geopolitical strife, businesses are faced with challenges at every turn. 

“Our vision for the transformative era ahead is our boldest yet as we strive to become an even more compelling, digital and global enterprise.”

– Brian Becker, RSM US LLP Managing Partner & CEO

Here at RSM, we provide both leading insights and compelling solutions to help our clients and our teams rise to meet these challenges. A few examples from this year include our work around economic headwinds and our support of clients during the banking crisis. We have also continued to advance our managed services offerings to help clients who are challenged with the labor shortage, are looking to operate more efficiently or are refocusing on the core of their business. And we continue to advance service offerings in new areas, such as environmental, social and governance (ESG), where our clients are looking for our support.

Simultaneously, we have been positioning our firm to meet the future. In January 2023, we launched a new global strategy for 2030, uniting all 57,000 people at RSM around the world. Domestically, we realigned our business to enable even more compelling experiences for our talent and our clients. Our lines of business are configured around common service lines, capabilities and solution sets to enable our people to build expertise aligned with their passion, assemble strong teams of experts to serve clients, and deploy digital tools and resources more quickly. Our industry teams are focused on going to market with the most compelling insights and services, and our markets are structured to harness the full power of RSM to meet the needs of our clients. We have also scaled our offices in India and El Salvador to bring on outstanding new talent to work with our domestic teams in the delivery of services to our clients.

We are deploying digital solutions more rapidly than ever as we evolve to become a digital firm providing assurance, tax and consulting services. This creates value for our clients through seamless digital engagement that complements the services our people deliver, and it creates value for our people by making their jobs more efficient—enabling them to focus on more strategic work and providing opportunities to learn new skills. Being digital is a journey, and we are well on our way.

Finally, we remain steadfast in sustaining our unrivaled, inclusive culture that compels talent to join us and grow their careers with us. We were named to the Fortune Best Companies to Work For list for the third year in a row, and once again recognized as one of People’s Companies that Care. Additionally, we doubled down on our ESG commitment by joining the United Nations Global Compact, continuing to enhance our environmental sustainability activities, signing the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles, and advancing our culture, diversity and inclusion strategy. 

We are pleased to share more about all of this in our 2023 Impact Report: Instilling Confidence in a World of Change, which combines our annual report, diversity report, RSM US Foundation report, and new talent and environmental data that shows our commitment to our clients, colleagues, communities and the world.

We are excited about what the future holds for RSM, our people, our clients and our friends. We appreciate our relationship with you and look forward to navigating the changing world together. 

With gratitude,

Brian Becker signature.
