Additional Culture Details

Grant Thornton is committed to a culture of trust and empowerment by putting people first and emphasizing the need for employees to bring their “whole selves” to work. The firm encourages staff to embrace six values: collaboration, leadership, excellence, agility, respect and responsibility, and reinforces those values through monthly “culture conversations.”

During these discussions, the firm engages employees from entry-level to senior leaders, sharing ways to better interact with each other and our clients. We understand the way we treat and develop our people directly affects the behavior and skills they bring to the clients we serve. Satisfied employees tend to stay put, providing our clients with engagement team continuity and a consistent, positive experience. The firm also offers professional development opportunities, such as our “Senior Manager Academy,” which helps build a pipeline of leaders at the firm who can learn from those in partner-level roles.

Our firmwide turnover rate dropped 10 percentage points in 2016, which is a major jump year-to-year. This was as a result of the firm’s emphasis on its culture, retention and by introducing new benefits, such as the Flexible Time Off policy, which allows our employees to take time off as needed to meet their individual needs – instead of a predetermined set of paid time off days.
