Accounting Today, a leading provider of business news for the tax and accounting industry, named JW Advisors of Las Vegas among its 2016 Best Firms to Work For.

The list identifies the country’s top 100 firms in the industry to work for based on a yearly survey conducted by Accounting Today in partnership with Best Companies Group. The program is designed to “identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the accounting profession, benefiting its economy, workforce and businesses,” according to the publication.

To be considered for the Accounting Today list, companies had to fulfill several eligibility requirements, including:

- Be a public accounting firm in the U.S.

- Have a minimum of 15 employees working in the U.S.

- Be in business for at least one year.

Companies from across the United States entered the two-part survey process. The first consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. This part was worth about 25 percent of the evaluation.

The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure employee experience. This part was worth about 75 percent of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

Best Companies Group managed the registration and survey process, analyzed data and determined the final ranking.

Accounting Today will release individual firm rankings in the Small Firm, Midsized Firm and Large Firm categories in its November issue.
