Averett Warmus Durkee (AWD) has been named one of Orlando Sentinel’s Top 100 Companies for Working Families. This is the fourth year in a row that the accounting firm, which specializes in serving the timeshare resort and other industries, has been recognized for this award. The annual list recognizes companies in the Central Florida region that offer an optimal work/life balance and demonstrate a commitment to offering benefits that make families a priority. The Sentinel conducts anonymous employee interviews to assist in making their decision.

“This honor helps affirm our aspiration to support the health and happiness of our greatest asset – our team,” says AWD Shareholder Tom Durkee. He and fellow Shareholder Lena Combs head up the firm’s timeshare division. “We are very proud of our more than 100 employees who work out of our Orlando and Altamonte Springs offices. It’s a particularly important objective of ours to commit to this level of support for our team. With our growth, comes enormous responsibility.” (AWD was recently recognized by Inside Public Accounting in their “2015 Top 300” list as one of the largest accounting firms in the United States.)

“We believe in giving all the benefits available, such as flexible schedules, telecommuting for certain positions; comprehensive medical, dental, vision and supplemental insurance coupled with internal wellness programs; plus additional paid time-off to allow time away from the office to spend with families,” says Combs. “We’ve been hard at work since 1989 to make ours the very best workplace possible.”
