At RLB, People Count. As an organization, we passionately believe that if you are driven, you will fit right in. We uphold the standard that success and opportunity at the firm is based on performance, ability and potential. We are acutely aware that diversity makes us stronger and is a key to fueling future growth together. At RLB, everyone is welcome. Bring your authentic self to work every day. Be YOU. We commit to our team and our clients that there is zero-tolerance for disrespecting one another.
We believe our team is at their best when they feel their best, inside and out. In addition to our fitness credit, we support our team member’s wellbeing through access to mental health supports. We have a dedicated team of trained Mental Health First Aiders, a mental health resource library, and an Employee and Family Assistance Program. We supply our team with personal days which can be used for appointments or mental health days and encourage our team to find a healthy work-life balance whenever possible. RLB staff enjoy a free membership to the Headspace app.
We believe in the power of work/life balance and we recognize that the traditional 9-5 doesn’t work for everyone. That’s why we support our team by offering flexible hours and allowing them to work from home and the office. Team members no longer need to choose between the two options.
The public accounting industry has an extensive busy season, and in order to satisfy our clients’ needs we often work additional hours. If applicable to your contract, 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.
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.
