More about IPA Best of the Best Accolade
You can read more about the award here, directly from IPA. Below is a brief overview.
For the past 25 years, INSIDE Public Accounting has been hosting an annual Survey and Analysis of Firms from which they name the Best of the Best public accounting firms in the nation. This group of firms, the highest performers within the profession, are ranked on more than 70 metrics. The 2018 Best of the Best firms produce superior financial results while planning for long-term, sustainable growth.
In 2018, more than 550 firms participated in the IPA Survey and Analysis of Firms. Best of the Best firms represent the top 10% of all firms that participated. IPA’s proprietary scoring formula looks at a variety of metrics related to growth, income, productivity, tools of governance, staff turnover, time management, and other areas that speak to the framework of the firm to determine the Best of the Best.
“Most firms don’t aspire to be average. Best of the Best firms are the peer group to which progressive firms aspire,” says Michael Platt, principal of the Platt Group and publisher of IPA. “In presenting the results of the IPA Best of the Best, we are proud to continue the tradition of expanding the imagination and the understanding of what is possible to achieve in running a public accounting firm.”
MGA Does Things Differently
As Michael Platt said of all Best of the Best firms, we don’t aspire to be average. We are always working toward a more collaborative, innovative approach to our clients’ needs. As we continue to grow, we are constantly looking for the most efficient ways to scale and manage our growth. We take pride in this as it gives us at MGA true hands-on experience that we can take directly to our clients to help them manage and grow their businesses as well.
None of this is achievable without a great team. We have built a family here at MGA, making each person part of the plan. Our team members are each part of the puzzle here building something greater than the sum of its parts. We have a diverse group of individuals, spanning cultures, ages, areas of expertise, and more to create a healthy and robust firm.
MGA’s Personal Development Program
Recently, this summer, we launched a new personal development program to invest in our people. The program is optional and offered to every single team member who is looking for ways to grow both their personal and professional lives. For this, we are utilizing a Corporate Anthropologist—an outside consultant not from our industry.
As a Best of the Best Firm, we make it a top priority to invest in our folks in order to both attract and retain our exceptional talent.
