Scott and Company LLC, one of South Carolina’s leading accounting, tax and consulting firms, has been ranked No. 1 in South Carolina’s Best Places to Work 2019 competition in the category of companies with fewer than 250 employees, according to information compiled by SC BIZ magazine and Best Companies Group of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

“We’re proud that Scott and Company is a firm that attracts and retains top talent, where our team enjoys their work, and at which they feel an integral part,” said Don Mobley, CPA, Managing Member with Scott and Company. “This recognition shows that the environment we try to create is being realized. We’re very proud of all of our employees for their contributions, and of this recognition of our firm.”

Scott and Company, a SCACPA 100% Firm based out of Columbia, has been named among the finalists in the category every year since 2012, finishing second in 2016 and 2018.

“We are honored to be among the exclusive group of organizations who demonstrate day in and day out their dedication to employee growth and satisfaction,” said Mobley, a SCACPA member since 1988.

The Best Places to Work initiative recognizes South Carolina’s top employers in two groups: companies with fewer than 250 employees and companies with over 250 employees. The program is sponsored by the S.C. Chamber of Commerce and SC Biz News.

Companies from across the state had to complete a two-part process. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company’s workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. In the second part, an employee survey measured the employee experience. The combined scores determined the final rankings.
