> The RSM experience

A compelling

talent experience

Our culture is second to none, and we continued to make efforts toward fostering an unrivaled, inclusive culture and talent experience. As a result, we were recognized for our unique culture by being named one of 2022’s PEOPLE Companies that Care® by Great Place to Work and PEOPLE magazine, named to the Fortune 2022 Best Workplaces for Millennials list, and honored as one of the Best Companies to Work For in 2022 by Fortune and Great Place to Work®.

Advocating for the health and wellbeing of our people 

At RSM, we make sure our people are empowered to be their best selves, both personally and professionally. This starts with understanding and caring for our people as individuals—their whole selves and all areas of their lives.

RSM has implemented several programs and strategies to enhance the wellbeing of our people.

In the past year, we were proud to reinforce our ongoing commitment to all our people and their wellbeing with expanded benefits. We enhanced family benefits to support people who are starting or expanding their families, augmented bereavement and parenting leaves with increased time away, and added family caregiver leave to provide six weeks of paid leave to use for a family member with a serious health condition.

We also focused on building a community that supports and inspires our people to prioritize their wellbeing, while delivering personalized, holistic programming for physical, emotional, financial and community wellbeing. This included launching RSM’s Wellbeing Hub, powered by Virgin Pulse, to all employees in the U.S., Canada, El Salvador and India. This new comprehensive, digital engagement platform unifies health and wellbeing into one personalized experience, while encouraging healthy habits, providing activity challenges and promoting social connections.

Bringing the RSM Experience to future talent 

This year, we welcomed approximately 900 students across the United States and Canada to our virtual Pathways experience. The one-day program provided students with an opportunity to explore our careers and get an inside look at what RSM is all about. After attending Pathways, students were given an additional opportunity to participate in our Bottom-Line Simulation, a team-based business simulation challenge, or Campus Automation Challenge, a team-based challenge working alongside RSM consultants to create bots to automate processes.

Development in a digital world

In September 2022, we launched a new, curated development program for our people, called ELEVATE. ELEVATE focuses on building our talent’s critical leadership and advisory skills. It includes a variety of development opportunities because we know to be leaders who instill confidence in a world of change, our people need more than in-person or on-demand courses—they need real-world experiences, exposure to good mentors/coaches/other leaders, and an inclusive environment that helps them thrive.

ELEVATE is an inclusive, flexible program that meets our people where they are in their careers in order to prepare them for the next level. ELEVATE is currently available to our senior associates, senior managers and directors, and our talent development and management team is currently creating content to make ELEVATE available to all RSM talent.

Employee engagement

People at RSM tell us that they feel engaged with the firm and with their jobs. RSM made the Fortune Best Companies to Work For® list for the third time in fiscal 2023, ranking No. 42 this year. In that survey, 93% of RSM’s people said RSM is a great place to work, compared to 57% of employees at a typical U.S.-based company.

In our own internal survey fielded in the fall of 2022, 93% of RSM’s people told us they are proud to work for our firm, 97% are committed to doing what is required to perform their job well, and 89% would recommend RSM as a great place to work to friends and colleagues.

This high degree of engagement creates our unrivaled, inclusive talent experience, builds a compelling work environment and enables our people to provide excellent service to our clients.
