Today’s Workforce Requires Flexibility, Opportunity and Equity - DHG Responds with a Dynamic Employee Experience

Charlotte, N.C., November 8, 2018 – Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP (DHG), a U.S. top 20 public accounting and advisory firm, has launched an innovative ONE DHG Employee Experience focused on flexibility, opportunity and equity, creating a consistent experience for all team members regardless of position in the firm. The framework for the experience is a key component in DHG’s high trust / high performance culture and it serves to enhance team members’ lives both inside and outside of DHG.

“We are committed to a great work place experience for every team member at DHG and recognize that, as individuals, our people have unique goals, challenges and needs,” said Effin Logue, Chief People Officer. “Through the ONE DHG Employee Experience, we can further support our people, their families and personal lives, and their aspirations while creating a deeper connection to the DHG mission and strategy.”

DHG recognizes that individuals have evolving needs, and because of that, flexibility in firm policies enhances DHG’s ability to support each of its people during their ever-changing seasons of life. In addition to the debut of its two-way communication process focused on transparency and information sharing, DHG has introduced the following enhancements as part of the ONE DHG Employee Experience.

  • My Time: By offering uncapped personal time off to those that have been with the firm more than two years, DHG is one of the first in the industry to offer its people the flexibility to manage their time away from the office in a way that maximizes performance while allowing appropriate recovery time.

(12 weeks for primary caregivers and 6 weeks for secondary caregivers).
  • 401K Enhancements: An improved 401k profit sharing plan to help all DHG people prepare for their financial future. Regardless of individual contribution, all employees will receive an increased DHG profit sharing contribution.
