Despite a tumultuous year, that included a nine-figure SEC fine and the announcement of a corporate spinoff, consulting giant EY still inched up two spots in the Best Companies to Work For list.
- Last year EY announced it would split its accounting and consulting arms into two separate businesses to reduce the likelihood of conflicts of interest.
- In June the Securities and Exchange Commission issued EY a $100 million fine after employees were found to have cheated on the CPA Ethics exam.
- The eight-week Mindful Leadership program develops employees’ emotional intelligence with training on skills like empathy, concentration, and creativity.
- EY was the first of the Big Four consulting firms to have a partner-level leader tasked with hiring diverse talent.
- In an effort to help employees access medical procedures banned in certain parts of the country, EY’s health care plan will cover costs for those who have to travel more than 50 miles for reproductive health care, transplants, and gender affirmation surgeries.
