CityBusiness, a metro–New Orleans bi-monthly business publication, has selected LaPorte CPAs & Business Advisors as one of the 2014 ‘Best Places to Work’ for the eighth year in a row.
LaPorte is one of 35 large firms awarded the ‘Best Places to Work’ designation, based on a two-part nomination process. To be considered, companies must submit extensive company information disclosing workforce data such as salaries, benefits, retention levels and employee advancement. The second part of the nomination process involves a third-party confidential survey of company employees to measure workplace culture.
“We are pleased to be recognized again this year as one of the New Orleans area’s outstanding employers,” notes William ‘Ted’ Mason, president and CEO of LaPorte. “As we continue expanding our services along the Gulf Coast,” says Mason, “LaPorte remains committed to maintaining our reputation as a quality workplace that values our employees as our most important asset.”
Established in 1946, LaPorte is one of the largest independent accounting and business consulting firms in the region, with over 160 personnel in New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Covington, LA, and in Houston, TX. The firm offers a variety of services, including accounting, audit and assurance business consulting, and tax planning and compliance.
