New Orleans CityBusiness, a bi-monthly business publication, has named LaPorte CPAs & Business Advisors to the list of ‘Best Places to Work’ for the twelfth time.
LaPorte is one of 35 large companies 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 our community continues recovery from the pandemic,” says Mason, “LaPorte remains committed to keeping our employees safe and 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 advisory firms in the region, with over 190 personnel in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Covington, and Houma, LA, and in Houston, TX. The firm offers a variety of services, including accounting, audit and assurance, business consulting, and tax planning and compliance.
