Perks and Programs

We asked Crowe to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Where to Work: In our focus to “Measure What Matters,” our mobility strategy allows people to work where it’s most convenient and where they’ll be most productive. Whether that’s in the office, at home or from another remote location, we believe it is important to provide our people with the flexibility they need to manage work/life needs.
  • What to Wear: Again supporting our “Measure What Matters” focus, another part of our mobility strategy is allowing for a more relaxed dress code. When our people are in the office and not directly working with external clients, they can keep it casual and wear jeans, any day of the week. We trust our people to deliver exceptional service to our clients, so we provide them the opportunity to dress more comfortably while doing so.
  • Community involvement: Unlike other firms, Crowe does not accept grant requests directly from not-for-profits. Our grant requests only come from our people, ensuring that foundation dollars directly support not-for-profits where our people volunteer. Personnel can earn a $250 Volunteer Investment Program grant when they volunteer at least 30 hours in a calendar year with a qualified not-for-profit. If they serve on a qualified not-for-profit board, they can earn a Board Member Match, which provides a $3-to-$1 grant match for their personal contribution up to $250. People at Crowe can use up to 8 hours of paid time per month to volunteer for an eligible nonprofit.
  • Innovation: Each year, Crowe invests about two percent of firm revenue in New Product Development (NPD) funding to develop ideas for new products and services our people bring forward. Our annual Innovation Awards recognize innovation efforts in a variety of categories. The Crowe Horwath Idea Portal also provides a means for personnel to bring forth ideas to help improve internal processes at the firm.
  • CEO communications: Our CEO travels to about half of our offices to meet face-to-face with our people for his annual State of the Firm presentation. He shares the firm’s vision and updates and celebrates successes and accomplishments while making it fun and engaging through videos, breakout sessions and Q&A. He also engages personnel each month with informative and fun video updates and blog posts including letting Crowe people vote on the Halloween costume he’ll wear and living the Mahalo theme of our Employee Appreciation Day by wearing a Hawaiian sport coat and tie.
  • Inclusion@Crowe: Crowe promotes and celebrates a culture of inclusion through a variety of efforts including firmwide training, our People Resource Networks and CEO tone-from-the-top action plans. Our Inclusive Excellence Council leads our strategy efforts to keep inclusion at Crowe a priority initiative.
  • Paid-leave policies: Following the birth, adoption or act of custody of a child, personnel get up to six weeks of 100 percent paid time off (whether they’re the birth or non-birth parent). Birth parents continue to receive the six weeks of time off through short-term disability after the six weeks of paid parental leave. For those in the military, personnel get up to four weeks paid time off for reservist obligations or if they are deployed for active duty.
  • Well-being: Our well-being portal helps our people live healthy lifestyles while earning points toward incentives. Crowe personnel earn points by participating in challenges ranging from fitness and nutrition to mindfulness and financial planning, which earn them gift cards, raffle prizes and discounts on medical benefit premiums.
  • Bravo Badges: Bravo Badges are a new way for our people to give instant and virtual recognition to their colleagues. Anyone can give or receive a badge. Categories include: People leadership, Client leadership, Thought leadership, Practice management, Market leadership, Innovation, entrepreneurism and strategy.
