To encourage employees to focus on the greater purpose in their work, this Big Four accountancy launched a “10,000 Stories Challenge,” in which staff members created poster stories to highlight the positive impact of their work. Offices with the highest participation rate received $20,000 each to donate to charity. KPMG is also a leader in promoting women in the workplace, starting with the election of Lynne Doughtie to a five-year term as Chairman and CEO of the U.S. arm of the global firm starting last July. The company also has a Women’s Advisory Board that influences succession planning, a Network of Women that consists of 65 chapters, and Lean-In circles. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
