“According to Quantum Workplace’s annual Employee Engagement Trends Report, employers had reported strong year-over-year growth in employee engagement in 2020, but engagement has declined in 2021.

“Seemingly every webinar and article about workplace trends focuses on culture and employee engagement. At WCS, however, culture is not a trend or buzzword. It is the centrifugal force that guides how the accounting firm operates every day.
“Founded as Weyrich, Cronin & Sorra in 1979, today WCS has three locations in the region, and has expanded its range of services beyond traditional tax, accounting and consulting services to include investigative accounting, non-profit organizations, construction and real-estate, governmental, employee benefit plans and health care practices.
“The firm is proud of its progressive approach to operations with partners leading teams of employees versus a top-down structure, and a shift away from the traditional model for accounting firms with everyone working quietly at their desks and competing for the next advancement opportunity.”
