South Sound BIZ magazine is announcing 2017 South Sound “Top Places to Work” this week with a series of Facebook Live events, including CEO Lon Wilson of Albers & Company and ConnectHR, supporting sponsors of this recognition program.

Even as it grew from a staff of 11 up to 29 and relocated to newly renovated office space in downtown Tacoma, the accounting and advising firm The Doty Group has maintained its culture of Appreciation for those who contribute to clients’ success, the firm and a better community.

And for the second consecutive year, members of the team led by principal Paul Doty and Diane Stohr enjoyed generous employee benefits, with both maternity and paternity leave, strong support for learning through professional education courses and tuition reimbursements, and a culture of team bonding that makes it a fun place.

A dedicated “Manager – Mentor” program provides a framework for internal one-hour “lunch and learn” enrichment programs, as new staff members are on-boarded and longer-term employees grow into new areas.

One employee told Top Places judges, “As we’ve grown, we’ve managed to maintain that family feel in the office” that is so valued by many workplaces. Another said, “We work hard, play hard and are a very close knit family.”
