Forbes named H&R Block to its list of the World’s Best Employers 2022. The recognition highlights associates’ perceptions of the company and H&R Block’s commitment as a top place to work. H&R Block has offices in Canada, Australia, Ireland, India, and the US.
Why did H&R Block stand out?
Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to rank the World’s Best Employers 2022 based on independent surveys of 150,000 employees in over 55 countries. Participants were asked to rate employers according to topics such as image, trust, gender equality, corporate social responsibility, culture, and benefits. Over 1 million data points were analysed.
H&R Block is dedicated not only to a connected culture, but also to associate well-being. The firm offers a selection of benefits for full-time and seasonal associates. H&R Block also invests in professional development and coaching to help associates excel in their careers.
This supports H&R Block’s growth and transformation strategy, by motivating associates to solve problems on three imperatives: small business, financial products, and tax experience. H&R Block has been recognized previously by Forbes for excellence in the workplace.
In 2022 alone, the firm has received Forbes awards for Best Employers for Women, Best Employers for Diversity, America’s Best Large Employers, Canada’s Best Employers, America’s Best Tax and Accounting Firms, and Best Employers for Diversity (also in 2021).
