What makes us a Best Employer?
We believe in attracting and retaining women leaders and have supplemented management maternity leave benefits to equate to 100% of your salary for the first 17 weeks of leave.
Paid Personal Time
RLB LLP allows one week per year to each team member of paid personal time, which can be used for personal appointments, illness, or other commitments.
Flex Time Policy
Not everyone’s lifestyle can support a 9 to 5 work day. We created a flex time policy to help support different schedules, and maintain work life balance.
RLB supports staff who put a focus on their health and well-being . If our staff are in a healthy and productive mood, and immunity against illnesses is increased, our staff are able to do their job better with less likely to miss work.
We work hard during our busiest season, so we reward our staff in our slower summer season. Staff enjoy Fridays off through July and August, taking advantage of the warm weather.
Tax season is our busiest season and stress is a big factor. We offer a chance to relax, and let tension slip away, for 20 minutes at least…
As our firm continues to grow we are continuously looking to add new team members. We reward our team members with a referral fee if they refer someone who is successfully hired.
We like to celebrate our accomplishments, and April 30th is a huge day for us to let loose. Why not take an evening to cheers each other for all our hard work?
Healthy Snack Days
During Tax season, we recognize our employees are working longer hours to keep to deadlines. We want to ensure their health is at the forefront and bringing in a variety of healthy snacks to keep our minds nourished.
Performance And Career Excellence; As part of your professional development we arrange an annual conference to discuss your performance feedback in detail and set action plans based on your goals for the coming year. The focus is to ensure you are receiving the support, training and guidance you need to realize your career and personal goals.
The accounting industry has an extensive busy season, and in order to satisfy our clients needs we often work additional hours. In recognition of this extra effort, RLB accumulates all hours worked above contract requirements. This time can be paid out to you as compensation or taken off during less busy times of the year.
As part of our commitment to our employees we want to support you as you continue to learn and grow. Each staff member has a development adviser who can help guide them on the right path to success, reaching their professional development and career goals.
We recognize length of service for all employees at all levels and share their hard work with the whole company. Our staff are dedicated to RLB and we want to show our dedication to our staff.
We like acknowledging your special day. A gift of your choice is given on your birthday. Your birthday is also acknowledged firm-wide in our internal Firm Update. Happy birthday to you!
