PKF O’Connor Davies Launches Pilot Program Allowing Employees to Work Remotely Through the Rest of 2020
PKF O’Connor Davies, LLP, one of the nation’s largest accounting, tax, and advisory firms, announced today a new pilot program allowing eligible employees to work remotely through the rest of 2020 in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The voluntary policy, which takes effect at Firm locations as they reopen, builds on the Firm’s success in maintaining superior client service through the transition to remote operations during the pandemic.
“The health and safety of our employees is our top priority,” said Kevin J. Keane, Managing Partner at PKF O’Connor Davies. “We transitioned to remote operations to protect all of our employees as the risks associated with COVID-19 grew. I’m proud to say that transition was flawless, and our company culture and commitment to clients has not skipped a beat. This pilot program gives longtime employees and new hires alike the flexibility to work in a way that’s best for their families and for their peace of mind.”
PKF O’Connor Davies is one of the first organizations in the accounting and advisory industry to extend remote work policies through the end of 2020. The policy is designed to allow employees to work remotely while providing the resources and space for valuable in-person meetings with clients and colleagues at Firm offices and other locations. The updated policy also removes the rule requiring that employees work with the Firm for at least one year before working remotely.
“We’ve always prioritized recruiting and hiring employees who are highly self-motivated and share our unwavering commitment to client service,” said Dawn Perri, Chief Human Resources Officer at PKF O’Connor Davies. “This policy reflects our confidence in our team to utilize evolving working solutions without sacrificing the productivity, responsiveness, and engagement we deliver to our clients.”
PKF O’Connor Davies has 12 offices in five states and continues to expand through organic growth and acquisitions on the East Coast. It has supported this growth with a strategic combination of promoting from within coupled with tactical external hires.
