100 Best Companies 2020-Crowe
Courtesy of CroweCourtesy of Crowe

    Having recently reported eight years of consecutive growth, the accounting, technology, and consulting firm says 90 percent of personnel rely heavily on flexible scheduling and telecommuting to meet deadlines and outperform competition. Many employees have said they’ve leaned on the policy to be present for first days of school or special family circumstances while hitting, if not surpassing, expectations at work too. “There is a lot of trust and professionalism,” says one about the policy. The idea extends to community service, too, since Crowe offers up to eight volunteer hours per employee each month. In one instance, nearly 100 remotely located employees volunteered their time to review and select college applications for a Florida high school scholarship fund.
