RSM (New Jersey)

It’s more important than ever for businesses to ensure that their culture matches their employees’ values




As Featured In:

RSM delivers the power of being understood, providing audit, tax, and consulting services to help middle market leaders succeed.


When RSM first opened our New Jersey office in 2015, one of the most crucial strategic imperatives for us was to establish the right culture. As a global middle-market leader, one of RSM’s key business values is stewardship. With current unemployment rates being so low, it’s more important than ever for businesses to ensure that their culture matches the values of their employees.

At RSM, our client servers deliver the power of being understood to our clients through a clientcentric focus, deep understanding, and enduring relationships, a combination that empowers our clients to make confident decisions. We want to deliver the same values internally to our talent.


Our culture is built on trust, inspiration, and a family atmosphere. We are very proud of the philanthropic events and activities we do as a team, as well as our culture, diversity and inclusion initiatives. Whether it be volunteering with the Children’s Specialized Hospital or bringing together our teams and clients at the Community Food Bank of NJ, being a helping hand in the community is what brings our values to life.

Fostering the right culture internally empowers and inspires people to be innovative and collaborative. We believe innovation comes from everywhere and that anyone who has a big idea can drive transformative change. In 2018, we launched our CEO Innovation Fund with $5 million and one objective: Cultivate grassroots innovation from within, at any level. We support our professionals in and out of the office to further enhance a culture that embraces fresh perspectives and creative thinking.


Most middle-market organizations across the globe are recognizing the importance of culture and its impact on employee performance and customer satisfaction. At RSM, cultivating an environment of trust and understanding internally enables us to deliver the best service to our clients.

We strive to continue working with growing businesses that share our values and together lead New Jersey into the upcoming years of economic success.
