      Visit Crowe.com and find out what it's like to work at one of the "50 Best Workplaces for New College Graduates." Crowe ranked seventh on this Fortune list, in addition to being named one of Fortune's "Top 100 Best Companies to Work For" and among Fortune's "20 Best Workplaces in Consulting & Professional Services". In these surveys, Crowe personnel attribute the following policies to making Crowe a great place to work:

      Innovation: Each year, Crowe invests about two percent of firm revenue in new product development funding to develop ideas brought forward by its people. Building upon a foundation of deep industry specialization, Crowe professionals follow a detailed innovation road map to create original, practical solutions that help address their clients' biggest challenges. This process allows them to see their ideas through from start to finish.

      Mobility strategy: Rolled out more than two years ago, this strategy defied the norm of the professional services industry. It allows Crowe personnel to work where they're most productive - whether that be the office, their home or elsewhere - and wear jeans while they're in the office. This policy continues to receive great reviews on annual internal employee engagement surveys.

      Benefits: The firm promotes healthy living through its internal well-being portal, which allows Crowe individuals to complete wellness activities - such as exercise challenges, healthy eating, doctor visits and mindful lifestyle changes - for gift cards and health insurance premium reductions. Additionally, on top of its healthcare and retirement programs, Crowe recently expanded its paid time off policies for military leave and all new parents.

      Community service: Recently acknowledged in the Fortune Best Workplaces for Giving Back list, the firm places a high priority on community service. In honor of the firm's 75th year, Crowe personnel not only achieved, but surpassed their goal of 75,000 hours of volunteering. We're proud to announce that we volunteered 82,000 hours - giving back to the communities where we live and work. That's the equivalent of 39 full-time employees at the nonprofits we served! In addition, Crowe has policies in place to align its charitable contributions with the volunteer efforts of its people.
