Plain Dealer Names Rea’s NEO Region A 2019 Top Workplace

Regional CPA & Business Consulting Firm Takes 38th Spot For Small-Sized Employers

Cleveland, Ohio –Walthall Rea, a subsidiary of Rea & Associates, a Top 100 regional accounting and business consulting firm, has earned a spot on The Plain Dealer’s coveted 2019 Top Workplaces list. The annual list, which was recently published, uses employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey to identify Northeast Ohio’s “Top Workplaces” among the area’s large-, medium- and small-sized employers. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection, among others.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover, and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.”

This is the eighth time Walthall Rea has won this award for the Northeast Ohio region and Wooster locations. Rea & Associates has 12 offices throughout Ohio and employs more than 300 professionals. The firm has worked to deliberately enhance its workplace culture, employee development programs and commitment to clients.

“Being named one of the top workplaces in our industry for the eighth time is a testament to our team and to our firm’s leadership,” said Richard Lash, CPA, Northeast Ohio regional president. “We pride ourselves on differentiating our firm from others in the market and are always looking to improve internally to offer our employees a great place to work while remaining committed to our clients. This accomplishment is only the beginning of what our team can achieve.”

Today, the firm’s offices in Amherst, Cleveland and Mentor operate as Walthall Rea. The team specializes in providing individuals, landowners, businesses, government entities and not-for-profit organizations with solutions to their accounting, tax and other business-related challenges.
