HBE LLP (www.hbecpa.com) is pleased to announce that for the ninth consecutive year, they have been named to the Accounting MOVE Project’s 2023 Best Firms for Equity Leadership and 2023 Best Firms for Women. With women leading 44% of the firm, HBE is one of the 13 firms awarded with both honors nationwide.

“Being recognized for the ninth consecutive year as one of the Best Firms for Equity Leadership and Best Firms for Women is a testament to our unwavering commitment to creating a supportive environment where all of our associates can thrive, regardless of gender, age, race or other diversity,” stated Scott Becker, Managing Partner of HBE. “Through our core values centered on integrity, respect and teamwork, we will continue to support and advance flexible leadership pathways built upon unique contributions and talents.”

The MOVE methodology investigates the factors proven to be essential for career success: Money, Opportunity, Vital supports and Entrepreneurship. HBE emphasizes employment programs proven to retain mid-career women, including phased return to work for new parents, remote-work opportunities, work-life supports for busy season and coaching to help managers lead teams based on productivity, not face time.

Since 2010, the Accounting MOVE Project has measured and supported the advancement of women at accounting and consulting firms. MOVE is the only annual benchmarking project that both counts and advocates for women in the profession. Firms receive benchmarking reports based on the MOVE Project. The Equity Leadership list recognizes firms that have achieved that milestone through any combination of culture, programs, initiatives and growth. Learn more at www.afwa.org/move-project.
