Talent DevelopmentJune 6, 2022 - Katz, Sapper & Miller
Recognizing a flexible approach to employee working arrangements is high on the agenda for PrimeGlobal Member Firm, KSM. In this article, they explain how flexible working benefits the employer and the employees, leading to a productive and engaged workforce.
Your Workday, Your Way
Flexibility in the workday is an important part of the KSM culture, and they have fully embraced how flexible work arrangements benefit their people, their clients, and the firm!
KSM’s work-from-home philosophy empowers their employees to work remotely, whether on occasion, a few times a week, or on a full-time basis. Today, many of their employees work a hybrid schedule, which provides both the flexibility that comes with working remotely – from home or elsewhere – and the benefits of working in the office, including collaboration and camaraderie.
The number of KSM employees working outside of their four office locations continues to grow, in fact, KSM have recruited talented people from all over the US, (20 states and counting!). To help facilitate connections between remote based employees and those working in offices, KSM established a resource group focused on creating opportunities to connect and engage through learning opportunities, social events, and recognition.
For many years, KSM have also offered structured modified work arrangements that enable their people to customize their schedules. Some work shorter weeks throughout the year, while others work more hours during busy season and reduce their hours during the summer and over the holidays. KSM understand that their workforce have a life outside of work, and they want people to live it!
Their remote work philosophy is built on trust and three principles our employees have committed to – being productive, effective, and connected, no matter when or where they’re working. And for their part, KSM is committed to putting people first by offering all employees the opportunity to find the flexible arrangement that works best for them.
"I really wanted to have a career and be a mom and feel like I was doing well at both. And that’s when I found KSM". Karen Lewis, Tax Manager, KSM.
