Fort Worth, Texas-based accounting firm Sanford, Baumeister & Frazier was recently awarded the inaugural Best Workplaces for Women award in the small business category by the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce’s Women Influencing Business group.

Developed with the help of the Texas Woman’s University and the Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber and Metropolitan Black Chamber, the award recognizes best practices by local businesses in recruiting and retaining women employees.

Research by TWU, focus group results and online surveys were measured by the criteria of compensation and leave, ethics, work flexibility, training and mentoring, facilities, community involvement and wellness initiatives.

Of the companies that applied, 21 were nominated in three categories: small-sized businesses (1-50 employees), medium-sized businesses (51-200 employees) and large-sized businesses (more than 200 employees). Sanford, Baumeister & Frazier’s 35 employees qualified it for the win in the small business category. Hillwood received the medium business award and Chesapeake Energy Corporation took home the large business honor.

Sanford, Baumeister & Frazier ranked No. 54 out of 65 companies in the mid-size category of Accounting Today’s 100 Best Accounting Firms to Work For in 2009. The firm is also a member of the Fort Worth Chapter Texas Society of CPAs Century Club.
