Once Plante Moran recruits a talented new hire, it keeps recruiting the same person throughout the employee’s tenure with the firm.
One of the country’s largest certified public accounting and business advisory firms, Plante Moran boasts a turnover rate of less than 13%, among the lowest in the industry. The firm’s re-recruiting philosophy includes:
- A “high-touch system” that involves team-building events, such as lunches and dinners out, sporting events, baby showers and .
- “The Breakfast Club,” which pairs an executive with three staff members in different roles and practice areas. The four meet at a local restaurant, where staff members are encouraged to ask questions and share their ideas.
- Career counseling. When employees who are thinking about leaving the Southfield, Mich., firm approach their supervisors for advice, the supervisor can try to thwart the departure or, if it’s in the best interest of the employee’s career, can support it.
- Post-employment relationships. Execs try to turn former employees into Plante Moran champions for life. They keep in touch with former employees, and encourage them to act as ambassadors by creating relationship opportunities for Plante Moran and their new employers.
