MB Group is named one of Inc. Magazine’s Best Workplaces of 2021!

May 23, 2022

AGN NA Member MB Group in Plano, Texas, are named one of the Best Workplaces of 2021. The firm has made significant changes to enhance its company culture – a hot topic in the accounting industry.

In 2018, Susan Bryant and Janet Haston Quinones bought out the last male partner at their firm and reshaped the MB Group’s work culture to be pro-family, pro-balance, and supportive of employees’ growth.

A recently installed middle-management team ensures that workers get the training they need to level up their skills, whether it’s creating sharper presentations or becoming more comfortable with public speaking.

“Our firm is filled with talented professionals who CARE about each other, our clients and making this a great place to work!”

Susan Byant – Principal at MB Group

The most significant risk, was when the firm removed its process for tracking billable hours. This change sent a strong signal that it values employees and their work.

Now the firm bills clients a flat fee per project, and the new system fosters the kind of work culture Bryant always wanted: one that brings the best out of employees, whose value isn’t reduced to a number on an invoice.

How can you create a better company culture for your firm? Read the article below, featured in the May/June 2022 edition of Inc. Magazine.
