Apple Growth Partners Again Named Top Workplace for 2023

Apple Growth Partners (AGP), an award-winning accounting and business advisory firm, has been named a Top Workplace by The Plain Dealer for the fifth consecutive year.

The Top Workplaces list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey. Any organization with 35 or more employees is invited to participate in the annual survey and award program. The anonymous survey uniquely measures four drivers of culture: alignment, connection, coaching, and performance. The research-backed employee engagement survey also measures employee engagement, leadership, and how valued employees feel.

“We care about our people, and it shows: most of our interns come back to work with us full-time, our people are happy and engaged, so it’s especially rewarding to bring home awards like this one,” said Erica Ishida, President. “We are glad that our employees notice and value the emphasis we place on our people, their wellbeing, their success.”

Over the last decade, AGP has been deliberate in building a people-first culture that supports Healthy Growth®. The firm launched a flexible workplace program called AGP Anywhere during the pandemic and continues to invest in firm growth and culture-building. The firm has a renewed focus on recruitment, retention, and growth as a part of its Vision 2030.

“As we look forward,” said Chuck Mullen, Chairman, “we know that our unparalleled employee experience translates into exceptional service for our clients. We are poised to continue to grow as a firm, thanks to our people. We know that Healthy Growth® means putting our people first, empowering them, and supporting them above all else. Our clients appreciate that our people are engaged and empowered.”

AGP is recruiting for a number of roles currently and invites candidates to review those openings on their website at
